“The Chain of Lakes boat tour the not-to-be missed experience”

I always tell my out-of-town guests that if they do one activity in Winter Park that they
take the boat tour. The launching dock is at the eastern terminus of Morse Blvd. and leaves hourly. The cruise goes through the connecting canals, and the skipper always has an entertaining monologue to accompany the rich visual experience. You may want to take a jacket, as being on the water can be cooler than your short walk to get down to the dock.

a Must Do when visiting the Orlando area. Great guides/captains who make Winter Park come alive! Boats are open so mid day tours tend to get a bit warm. I take all my out of town friends here! Learn something new each time!

Walk just 2 blocks from the great shopping and great restaurants on Park Avenue and take an hour or so out on the lake in old Winter Park. The canals between Lakes carry you behind Rollins College some of the nicest old summer homes in the area and then past the backyards of some of the wealthiest residents in the area. The homes are beautiful and you are likely to encounter gators, Anhingas and other water birds. Winter Park is a nice town to visit and this is a lovely little boat tour. The guides are longtime residents with lots of yarns to spin and a few historical surprises. The weather is usually great, except for maybe August and early September. It's still really hot. But even then, once you're out on the water, the breeze generally keeps the ride comfortable. Takes about an hour or 2.

Where can you get a lovely sunny boat ride and learn the history of Winter Park? A wonderful way to spend an hour cruising the chain of lakes.

came across this lovely little town by chance... What a very charming town it is.. We took the boat lake tour which lasts about 45 mins. The skipper is well informed and on a beautiful sunny day it was so calm and relaxing. Even with a two year old.. A definate must
