On our Scenic Boat Tour, we motored around Lake Virginia. The scenery and landscaping of the freshly manicured properties was as breathtaking as were the mansions themselves.

I go there all the time for paddle boarding and its never that busy. Just be mindful of the tour boats and they will do the same.

Get your boat, kayak or pontoon boat out and enjoy the lake! The views are splendid as most of the coastline is stacked with well manicured mansions. If you don't have your own vehicle, make sure to take the boat tour which goes out several...More

The Palm Beach of Central Florida, Lake Virginia is almost completely surrounded by multi-million dollars homes. The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour is the best way for a visitor to experience this beautiful setting. You can also rent standup paddleboards at Dinky Dock.

We used to live on Lake Virginia and miss is terribly. The Winter Park Boat cruise swings by this lake along with several others. You need to walk around Rollins College campus and enjoy the paved walkway along the lake. Truly beautiful.

One of the city workers who we met on our morning walk suggested we take the boat tour. (Landing is only 3 blocks from the park, so we did.) We saw Lake Virginia and 4 others all connected by charming canals. Good thing we went...More

The dock is at 312 E. Morse Blvd., and the contact is 407-644-4056, or google for the website. Reservations might be a good idea in the busy season. The trip takes about an hour. Remember, it is too hot in Florida right... More
