Great taste of Winter Park - past and present.

Fun to be on the water and see the homes - old and new. The guide was very informative. It is a beautiful area.

What a gorgeous spot and a perfect day. I recommend tour but with earplugs. Since the history of the lakes is actually pretty mundane and it's not exactly a celeb watching tour (homes are just owned by rich people you never heard of), they try to spice it up. And it is incredibly annoying, horrible jokes and puns over a... More

Fun things to know and tell and other historical tidbits about Winter Park. The views and commentary are worth more than the price of admission. Time well spent. Take a big group along to share the experience. Ask for Captain Alan.

A must if you are in area! Fun boat tour thru canals showing 7 different lakes and providing interesting stories and history if waterfront houses and the area. Boat does not go too fast and is very comfy. The tour guides are very personable and show you a good time.

A great boat trip skippered by Dan. Very informative on both the vegetation and human inhabitants around the lakes. At $14 a great price. The history of the surrounding estates was interesting. Very polite skipper who thanked all the other users of the lake who moved to one side in the linking canals.

We need an activity that was good for my slow moving mother-in-law and my active 3 year old grandson and the Scenic Boat Tour satisfied them both. Loved the history lesson, saw beautiful homes, grandson enjoyed going thru the canals and the speed of the boat which most adults would consider moderate. We were here Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend and... More

This is a good way to Know the beautiful of the lakes of winter Park, you go through the canals to see the different sites of the lake. One hour and it costs u$ 14,00 for adults.

Friends bought us tickets as a gift so we took a day trip. It was 65 and sunny which was just perfect! They take you to 3 lakes connected by little canals. The captain shows you the beautiful homes, Rollins college and talks a bit about the history. Definitely a nice little trip before you head to the shops that... More

We found this on Trip Advisor and jumped on it as a great way to spend the end of our afternoon. It was about 3/4 mile walk from downtown and we got there about 20 minutes early. We spent that 20 minutes relaxing at the waters edge. The boat came in on time and we boarded promptly at 4 pm.... More
