Awesome Winter Park Experience

If you have not experienced the WP Boat Tour, it is a must! So much fun and history while enjoying a pleasant few hours on the WP Chain of Lakes.

An interesting way to see the beautiful houses and gardens in this lovely area. Very knowledgeable tour guides who point out the various buildings and their history as well as the local flora and fauna.

Very enjoyable boat tour. Relaxing and very informative. Hot day but we were comfortable out on the water. Second time and would recommend it.

This was such a relaxing boat tour on lakes connected by canals. Drew took us out pointing out wildlife and telling us the history of the town and many of the houses we saw. It was beautiful, the houses were jaw dropping! If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle treat yourselves, it was only $12. After... More

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when my son recommended we take the scenic boat tour of the lakes of Winter Park.I thought it might be a little too touristy (well, maybe it was a little). But the scenery and Tom, the very interesting and passionate about Winter Park guide made it a very fun hour... More

I've lived in Winter Park for 20+ years and often tell them that the Scenic Boat Tour can be a very expensive venture. My husband and I went on it and ended up buying one of the beautiful homes we passed! Seriously, the ticket price is a huge bargain...and even the soft drinks are practically sold at cost. Even though... More

We are always looking for things to do when my parents are in town. This was a great afternoon for the kids and the grandparents. We went early as it does get busy. The trip takes approx an hour. You do learn a bit about the local area, houses, chains of lakes, etc. Definitely worth it especially if you are... More

We went for the 10am trip and as expected it was quiet. There were 6 of us for a boat probably seating 25. Another reason for going early is that the sun will murder you on the water (1 hour trip) in the middle of the day. It was very reasonably priced at $12 and the views and sights were... More

This 45 minute tour of three lakes is not to be missed. The lakes are connected by man made canals and the view of Rollins College and the beautiful homes is wonderful. The vegetation and wildlife is most enjoyable.

This pontoon boat tour around the Winter Park chain of lakes ( there are 6) will appeal to all ages. I have taken many guests who have visited to this tour and all have said it was a pleasant departure from the tourist attractions. The guides are very well informed and share history and trivia about many of the original... More
