As we cruise through ancient cypress swamps on this 2-hour boat ride.  The Dora Canal Tour is a spectacular event that starts in Mount Dora on Lake Dora and follows the shoreline all the way down to the Dora Canal in Tavares. On the way to the canal you will pass Boathouse row; a unique area of homes that were once boathouses for Mount Dora’s elite but have now been converted into homes for the residents. You will also pass by many beautiful homes on the shoreline of Lake Dora with a stop at a Bald Eagles nest along the way. Just before you reach the canal you will pass the City of Tavares which is the Seat of Lake County that Mount Dora resides.

The Dora Canal is a little over a mile long and connects Lake Dora and Lake Eustis. The first quarter-mile from the south is populated but after that, it is like Florida 200 years ago.
