A lot of Winter Park attractions were closed on Monday so the boat tour was an easy choice. Wow, glad we did it -- comfortable, fun, informative and an excellent way to see some of the most impressive homes with spectacular landscaping in America.

Our tour guide, Tom, was great fun and passionate about the history of Winter Park. He pointed out flora and fauna and houses on the lakes whose residents were significant in shaping the local history. Well worth the admission fee. Take a walk to a local restaurant afterwards for something cool to drink or a bite to eat. Its within... More

Comfortable pontoon boat. Beautiful tour of the winter park chain of lakes; homes, trees, and water lovers. Flora and birds were out on display. Educational tour guide. Relaxing hour on the water. Excellent value.

Have had family in Winter Park for years but hadn't yet tried the Boat tour... SO glad we did! We had a fun, entertaining tour guide, which helped. But overall a great experience. You take a small open pontoon boat (seats about 15) for an hour across ~4 of the lakes (all connected by narrow channels). The views of the... More

This is our second trip on the scenic boat tour and it was still as fantastic as the first time we did it. A great family trip around the lake with the wonderfully knowledgeable tour guide Dan. A fantastic way to see the area and learn about its rich history. Highly recommend

What a delightful hour we spent on our river trip boat around the lakes. An incredibly relaxed and efficient business. All the staff were retired men - and it was like visiting a favourite grandparent. The trip is narrated by the boat captain and you hear the most interesting facts about the lakes and the town (and some famous residents).... More

Perfect way to spend a lovely day and learn a bit of local lore and history. The guide was very knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed giving the tour. Make sure you have a hat and sunscreen and a pair of binoculars is always helpful.

Excellent tour and had a great time even though we got rained out. They provided ponchos and refunded all two full boats. Fun guides, knowledgeable and providing a unique service in Winter Park. This is a relaxing ride, not a theme park thrill. Also, no alligators here. I never knew there were canals! So cool. Would defiantly recommend and would... More

A great way to see three of Winter Park from the water. Modest price for an hour tour. Our guide pointed out homes of interest and trips through the canals was pleasant
