This is a delightful way to spend an hour on three lakes through canals and get a overview of Winter Park. Then visit the Morse museum, Rollins College and have lunch in a very attractive village. Lovely shopping as well. Well worth a visit.

Pretty and educational! They gave lots of ideas for other things to do and see in Winter Park. Service was alright, no excuse for not accepting cards in this day in age.

We enjoyed a lovely ride through the Maitland Chain of Lakes. Our tour guide shared fun and interesting information about the beautiful homes, college campus, and general ecology of the area. We boated through channels to visit three different lakes.

See winter park from a different perspective by taking this scenic boat ride. The boat operators are super friendly and share a lot of history of the area. Bring your kids they will love it.
