We took out of state guests here. They loved the tour, thought it worth the money. It was very crowded the day we were there but staff was prepared. They had extra boats so everyone was able to get on as scheduled, making it all flow smoothly

We did the one hour boat tour from the foot of Morse Ave. Great deal for only $12. The boats leave on the hour so plan to get there about 20 minutes prior. It appears that if a boat is full, they add additional boats. It's cooler out on the lakes so bundle up if you are doing this during... More

We stopped there for a few hours just wanting to relax and it was an absolutely gorgeous day to do so. The lake was so pretty with birds floating all over it. This place is so peaceful and beautiful and makes you forget that you live so close to Disney!

One of five lakes on the Winter Park chain of lakes. It is the 3rd largest of the 5. But the only way to see it is from the shore of Rollins College (worth the visit too). Or take the Winter Park Pontoon Boat trip and see 3 of the 5 lakes.

Lake Virginia is a beautiful lake upon which to live but most of Central Florida only knows it as a body of water in Winter Park. Most recreation on the lake is that of its residents and their visitors.

A lovely expanse of water surrounded by breathtaking homes. Rollins college is sited on it;s banks and provides a beautiful backdrop to the College.

I really enjoyed the boat tour of Lake Virginia and the other lakes that were connected by the canals. Good views of the expensive real estate in Winter Park and the local guide was knowledgeable and provided a running commentary on the history of Winter Park and of some of the houses that I found extremely interesting. Highly recommended.

Excellent boat trip around 3 lakes and upscale houses. Actual price is $ 12 per adult and $6 for kids. Do it!

The most beautiful Sunset in Winter Park, you can paddle to Winter Park Lake chain, Mizel Lake and Osceola Lake. It's a relaxing way to spend an hour seeing how the rich and famous have built some beautiful lakefront property narrated by a local who adds a little background to the history.
