Tour Overview

Enjoy a beautiful sunset and moon rise on the outstanding Winter Park Chain of Lakes. Experience the natural beauty of Florida from a unique perspective and witness the sun setting at the exact time the full moon rises. Enjoy the friends, the ghost stories, and toast the stars.

It’s always a fantastic time. All kayaking or canoeing equipment and guides are provided. In addition, we stop on our own little island for some finger foods, campfire, and maybe a swim. The tour lasts about three hours and ends at your parked cars.

Full Moon names have been used by many cultures to describe the full moon throughout the year. Specifically, Native American tribes used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each recurring full moon, including the Flower Moon. The unique full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred.

Although many Native American tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known full moon names come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the
settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the full moons.
