Overview

Every Tour Is An Adventure! Let the experts at CraigCat Tours guide you on a fun filled tour across Lake Dora and through a 2000 year old cypress tree lined waterway.The Dora Canal has been called -"The Most Beautiful Mile In The World". Scenes from the movie "African Queen" with Humphrey Bogart were filmed in the Dora Canal! Our Tour is fully narrated and guided. We start at Gilbert Park just two blocks from downtown Mt. Dora, see the sights of the Mt. Dora shoreline and then cruise at high speed across Lake Dora to the Dora Canal. We exclusively use CraigCat powerboats. CraigCats are safe, stable, fun and unsinkable.

The canal was beautiful but the man Jack running the tour was very gruff, rude and very hard to understand. He seemed to have no patience and was just going through the motions. I have taken the tour boats through the canal in the past...More

A work colleague recommended that we take this tour, and it didn't disappoint. Right from the beginning when our tour guide patiently waited for a rain storm to pass, to the very end when we raced back to the dock. The canal was amazing, fantastic...More
