Mount Dora Canal Narrated Nature Cruise

doraOur Dora Canal Narrated Nature Cruise (more correctly the Elfin River) takes an hour and a half, a professionally narrated tour of the canal system and adjoining waters. Said to be 'the most beautiful mile of waterway in the world"

You may see otters, turtles, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, woodpeckers, green herons, the little blue heron, great blue herons (who can eat up to 6 pounds of fish per day!) sometimes a night heron, Louisiana herons, anhingas, cormorants, great white egret and lovely snowy white egrets (the bird with the golden slippers), and many song birds. And, of course, alligators. The largest alligator taken out of this area recently was well over 18 feet in length, and weighed over 800 pounds! Occasionally, you will see red-shouldered hawks, owls, bald eagles, buzzards, and pelicans, and sometimes (if you're lucky?)even a snake or two!

doraMarvel at the mighty majestic cypress trees in this region, some up to 2000 years of age. You will see one in the canal, that was over a 1000 years old by the time Columbus discovered America! Be sure that the Captain points out the cypress tree in the Dora Canal that is over 1,500 years old! Please feel free to have your picture taken in the hollow of the 900 year old cypress tree.

Our popular and very knowledgeable captains give a splendid narration on each cruise for any time of the year, to ensure that you miss nothing of note or special interest, nor any of the fascinating details about the animals, birds, insects and flora hereabouts. Coolers are welcome on board - and remember to bring your cameras! You may also Picnic on our Terrace before or after your trip. Group outings and Family Parties find this a most enjoyable part of the trip.
