Let the experts at CatBoat Tours guide you on a fun-filled tour across Lake Dora and through millenia-old cypress tree lined jungle waterway.

The Dora Canal has been called "The Most Beautiful Mile of water in the World."

Our waterways have quite a cinematic history that you will hear about on the tour. Local legend has it that scenes from the movie ’The African Queen’ with Humphrey Bogart, were filmed in the Dora Canal. We can definitely confirm that scenes from the movie "Crocodylus," by local filmmaker Michael McLaren were filmed on our waterways. And the 1981 Hollwyood film "Honky Tonk" freeway starring Beverly D'Angelo, Jessica Tandy, William Devane, Beau Bridges and Teri Garr was filmed in Mount Dora and on our waterways.

Our tour is fully narrated and guided. We start at Mount Dora Boating Center & Marina just a short walk from downtown Mount Dora, see the sights of the Mount Dora shoreline and then cruise at high speed across Lake Dora to the Dora Canal.

We exclusively use CraigCat powerboats. For more information about CraigCat go to craigcat
