BOAT TOUR-Arrive for 10:00am boat departure - A 2-hour Narrated Eco-tour of Lake Dora and the Dora Canal. As we cross Lake Dora, you will be given a brief history of Mount Dora and the Harris Chain of Lakes, all the time looking out for bald eagles & osprey. Once under the railway bridge in Tavares we enter the Dora Canal; the first portion of the canal was dug by hand and is the residential section, beyond is the natural jungle river which winds its way through a Cypress Swamp. This tight meandering passage through the 2,000 year old trees allow us to search for herons, egrets, anhinga's, turtles and alligators and observe them in their natural habitat. The route is reversed once we turn around in Lake Eustis or Gator Inlet.
