We've taken adult visitors of all ages and physical abilities on the tour, and everyone enjoys both the ride and informative narration. Never disappoints!

This tour took us to three of the lakes of Winter Park, via the connecting canals, focusing on the homes and families and historical figures who lived there, including the significance of Rollins College for the community. Not as much on the development of historic...More

Our family enjoyed our boat tour. We thought it was going to be very hot since it isn’t covered, but there were some shady canals that helped keep us cool. The boat would occasionally go fast so the breeze helped keep us cool, too. I...More

The boats aren't covered, so bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Good local tour with a few corny jokes thrown in. Sunny days will be hot when the boat isn't moving. Would have been nice to cruise around closer to the houses for longer time....More

We live nearby and it was a beautiful day so we thought this would be perfect and it was. Our boat captains each time tell us something new each visit. We must come at least once a year because its always a fun pleasant day.

For a very reasonable price you can spend a pleasant hour on Lake Osceola and two adjoining lakes, seeing splendid homes, learning about local history, and hearing jokes and puns so corny that they were funny! Two highlights for me were going through the overgrown...More

There's nothing fancy about this place, its boats or its tours; they brag about it being there since 1938, and it feels like you are back in the 60's, with the older tour guides, the open air pontoon boats and the inability to take credit...More

I'd give them a call to arrange this. They have more than one boat, so they can accommodate you.
