“A Winter Park Tradition Since 1938”. While in town we were lucky enough to get aboard a tour boat. I thought the $14 Adult price was fair. We cruised on three different lakes using man made canals connecting them. Per their brochure it’s a “relaxing, narrated, one hour cruise”. And “It’s really the only way to see the true beauty of Winter Park which includes Rollins College”. We saw many beautiful homes on the water and heard some historical stories with mentions of charitable past owners.

Nice ride onboard a little boat. Beautiful views, good information, kind guide, but I think price could be 10.00 us per adults Muy lindo paseo, vistas espectaculares, el guía muy amable, pero el precio podría ser un poco más barato. 10.00 us me parece razonable.

We went to Orlando with our 4 year old and after reading the reviews of this boar tour, we decided to do it. We had an amazing time. David, our tour guide, was amazing and very knowledgeable. The lakes connect via canals and there are beautiful mansions all around the lakes. If you are in the Winter Park area, I highly recommend this tour.

We took the scenic boat tour of Winter Park. The views of the large and often historic homes as well as the natural Florida beauty was wonderful. The boats are pontoon boats with comfortable bench seats. Our boat captain/tour guide was very friendly and personable. He was very knowledgeable and he interspersed his tour information with humor. A lot of the humor was silly, but it still made the tour fun. The boats do not have canopies on them because they sail through canals that join the lakes and the canals have low bridges. We had to watch our heads as we went under the bridges. Because there was no canopy on the boat be prepared to be in the sun at times during the 1 hour tour. The canals are shady, but out on the lake can be quite sunny. The breeze from the boat traveling across the lake kept it cool enough. Tickets are obtained at the dock. Do note that they only take cash or check, not credit or debit cards. A big challenge can be finding parking. There is parking convenient to the dock, but Winter Park can be quite busy and sometimes you have to search for a parking space. I highly recommend the Winter Park boat tour. It was very good.

Yesterday, my wife, brother, and I took the 3:00 pm boat ride. Lee was our guide. We have taken two previous rides. This was the first time for my brother. Lee did a great job explaining the history of many of the homes along the way, information about Rollins Collins, and interjecting just enough humor to capture every moment of our 60 minute ride. Riding through the canals was fun. Our boat trip was the highlight of our day. Don't miss this experience.
