We took our grand kids and the lakes as well as the houses surrounding are very beautiful. The ride is only about 50 mins which is just right for younger children. They only take cash so be prepared.

Love this scenic boat tour, I’ve done it twice and both times were great! Boat is in good condition and staff is friendly.

For those not wanting to go the amusement park Disney type locations, this is a nice leisure boat ride along the three adjoining lakes. Many interesting details are shared. This is a “cash only” tour so be sure to think about this beforehand. The tour starts in the historic district of Orlando and seemed that there were enough various areas for parking which gave us the opportunity to enjoy just walking the neighborhood’s beautiful homes, along the lakes, prior to reaching the dock. Because of heat, we chose the early morning, 10:00am, and weren’t disappointed. Very nice museums are also nearby that allowed us to stay for more than the boat tour.

This is an 18 passenger boat tour on the pristine Winter Park chain of Lakes where one can observe different birds in tall trees and breathtaking homes situated on the lakes. As the boat captain maneuvers the boat through the narrow lakes one can almost reach out and touch the walls that are used to guide and keep the boats moving through. The boats do not have covers so bring a big hat and sunscreen to take care of the exposure, if you so desire. The boat captains usually have great stories and are eager to tell about the local history of the different areas. It is relaxing and makes for an most enjoyable time.

Although I’ve been on this boat tour many many times when I visit my grandma’s home which is right on the lake, I love this little tour. It’s on a little platform boat that goes around the lake. The guys are very knowledgable and give a great history of the region. It is a wonderful thing to do on a cloudy day. Beware one of my sons got very unwell in the past as it was very sunny and hot on the boat make sure you bring suntan lotion and a hat.
