The thing Tarpon Springs is known most for Is it’s natural sponges. They grow off the gulf coast of Fl. These sponges are gathered by hand and The main hub of things in Fl ,is at Tarpon Springs. Many of the Spongers are Greek and from a long line of people that have harvested these creatures for many many years. And though the Sponge docks is am major tourist hot spot, in the midst of it all you will see real working sponge boats and families that have made a living off this for several generations.
