We’ve visited Winter Park 3 times, and have taken the tour 3 times. Each time the tour was different and we learned things we hadn’t heard before. Now I know why the boat tour is so popular.

This narrated boat tour is a great activity on a beautiful day. It provides another perspective of the history and estates along the lakes. The only downside is they do not accept reservations. Fortunately, they had three boats running so boarding was not a problem.

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