Tour Overview

This paddling tour offers a 3-4 hour-long, guided paddle through four of the seven lakes including four, narrow garden-lined canals on the beautiful Winter Park chain of lakes.

On any given tour, guests may observe great Blue Herons swooping waterside to snag a fish or a lazy alligator languishing on a nearby bank.

Every tour, however, guarantees plenty of swaying palms, towering cypress trees, lush ferns, and a variety of flourishing sub-tropical flowers. This scenic cruise features breathtaking views of opulent private homes and exquisite estates sprawling along the shores.

You will then find your way to Kraft Azalea Gardens. With romantic flowered paths and a beautiful lakeside view, this is the place for lovers. Before returning to Fort Maitland, we will stop at a small private island to enjoy a spread of cheeses, fruits, veggies, crackers, cold cuts, chocolates and of course a possible swim to cool off.
