Soar across the water at speeds of up to 25 mph, and discover the peninsula as your local guide shows you all these waterways are known for. Access Central Florida's natural beauty that has attracted visitors for over a century. Learn how tourism blossomed on the Clermont chain of lakes in the 1850s, and especially after the Civil War.
