The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour (aka Venice of Central Florida) is a favorite among locals and visitors worldwide. They also offer private tours for family reunions and company excursions.
On any given tour, participants may observe large cranes swooping waterside to snag a large fish or a lazy alligator languishing on a nearby bank. An occasional water skier or racing-shell full of crew members from Rollins College. Every tour, however, guarantees plenty of swaying palms, towering cypress trees, lush ferns and a variety of flourishing sub-tropical flowers. Breathtaking views of opulent private homes and exquisite estates sprawling along the shores are also a key feature of the cruise.
The dock, less than 5 minutes from Park Avenue, Central Florida´s popular, upscale shopping district, is conveniently located on the East end of Morse Boulevard on Lake Osceola.
The Scenic Boat Tour offers a fleet of six 18 passenger pontoon boats. Admission is $14 for adults and $7 for children (under 2 are free). Cash or Check Only! Operating hours are 10am-4pm daily except Christmas. Tip: Mention Natural Awakenings and former NA Publisher/Captain Rod Jones when you book your tour! Call 407-644-4056. Maybe, you’ll get a discount?!
