This was a pleasant enough trip. Sadly the latent socialist was activated within me. All we saw were posh houses owned by the bourgeoise classes and their private college. Meanwhile the under classes slaved away in the gardens. Most of these rich folk are either there by privilege or from rinsing the lower orders for medical fees mostly. Anyway a... More

This was my 2nd ride with this boat tour. They do a nice job of talking to their guests about the ride, the boat, the lakes, the flora snd fauna, the homes, college and then ask if we have any questions. They do not continuously talk, which is nice too. The canals are fun to go through. It threatened to... More

This is so refreshing to the eye. I've done this twice now and I know I'll do it again. The tour is about 45 min. but it's an amazing one. Our Captain Charlie was filled with information of the lakes that Winter Park has. He surely knew what he was talking about. The view is a powerful one and you... More

Ago the hidden gem that we just found. The tour was an hour long,and took through 3 lakes and canals in winter park. The guide was very full of local knowledge and facts. The homes that you saw on the lake were out of the world. You saw Rollins college and many other historic sights. Be sure to do this... More

This tour is located at 312 East Morse Blvd in Winter Park. Find Morse and go as far East as you can and park. It'a a little vague where the tour facility is but it starts right down from the parking area. This involves a tour of 3 lakes with connecting canals and runs daily 10 AM - 4 PM,... More

This is a fun thing to do for an hour out of your tourist day. The day we went it was hot and humid and it felt good to be out on the water but the boat is open so there is no shade, so bring a hat. The narration is interesting, done by an old timer from the area.... More

It was interesting to learn about the history of the lakes, the architecture and the celebs that live or lived there. Only down side was it was too hot and the boat wasn't covered. Restrooms were not very clean either.
