This 1 hour cruise was the most beautiful we have ever had, and obviously the weather helps. Fabulous houses line the three gorgeous lakes which are linked by lovely narrow canals which in themselves are quite scenic. The captain gave an interesting commentary which complimented the superb scenery. At $12 it was good value. We enjoyed it so much that... More

Learned quite a bit about the history of Winter Park and Rollins College. You'll cruise 3 lakes (via narrow canals) and see some beautiful homes along the shores of the lakes. Our tour guide is a local who knows all the history and provides a fun narrative of the area. Great way to spend an hour!

This was a great (different) view of Floride, in a place too close to Orlando, you can encounter a chain of lakes with a lot of history and great houses. The driver was a great storyteller, so the ride was further intersting. You cannot miss this ride, the connections between the lakes have an european touch.

What a great way to see this part of Florida. The captain of the boat told wonderful stories, as he pointed out houses of those who spent their time here in the past. Mr. Rogers is one of those famous people, in case your captain asks.The wildlife was a joy to watch too! An inexpensive trip, which I recommend you... More

This was a nice pontoon boat ride thru several lakes in Winter Park. The canals connecting the lakes were an added bonus. Beautiful homes and scenery around the lakes!

One of the nice alternatives to visiting the theme parks is to take this relaxing and informative boat tour. Combines a history of the area along with some interesting personalities that have lived in Winter Park. Not expensive at $12.00 (cash or check only), and with free parking and the availability of restrooms. Beautiful views of gorgeous homes and fun... More

Visited on Saturday 10-25-2014. At the end of E Morse Blvd there is a hidden gem called Scenic Boat Tour. We arrived early for the first ride at 10 am. No issues parking- which is free and there are restrooms as well. They take only cash $12.00 each which is a bargain and they also sell water and snacks but... More

This was a very nice one hour boat ride thru a chain of very pretty lakes in the middle of Winter Park, Fl. The staff were very accommodating and the guide and driver was very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. The homes on the lakes were huge, and had a lot of history connected to some of them...

I share the reviews that this trip is well worth the time and money ($12 cash or check only). There is plenty of parking (always a plus) and when we went they had two full boats- don't know if they always do that or not. It was fun to see another side of Winter Park, where clearly really rich people... More
