This home movie begins with the filming of a passing train through a car window. Next are downtown scenes of Tarpon Springs, the waterfront and Greek sponge boats. The family boards one of the boats and goes out with the sponging crew. There are scenes of a diver suiting up in his diving outfit and going into the water. The Tarpon Springs Sponge Exchange is shown, and then the film moves on to film crews at Cypress Gardens shooting Jantzen bathing suit commercials.
