Come paddle our beautiful waterways and explore the scenic beauty of Lake County, Florida!

We rent kayaks, paddle boards, and water bikes by hourly, half day and full day time periods.
Our waterfront location is on Lake Dora in the downtown Tavares waterfront park. You can get to our most scenic waterway, the Dora Canal, in about a half mile paddle from our location. We suggest paddling in our morning hours for a peaceful and more serene paddling experience.
We are on a very popular chain of lakes so expect BOAT TRAFFIC TO BE HEAVY on the weekends in the canal. 

*Renters must be 18 years or older or be accompanied by an adult
*Weather permitting for all rentals

About  the Dora canal

This beautiful stretch of waterway connects Lake Dora with Lake Eustis in the Lake Harris Chain of Lakes. Paddling this mile long canal in Lake County takes you back in time to experience the real Florida. Large cypress trees line the canal providing excellent homes for many species of native birds including anhinga, great blue herons, egrets, cormorants, limpkins, hawks, osprey, and the occasional bald eagle.

Paddle information

Location/Paddle Lengths:

The Dora Canal is one mile in length. The average paddler can get from our location and through the canal and back to our location in two hours.

*We recommend a four hour paddle rental time for those that want to paddle in to a waterfront restaurant on Lake Eustis. The Fishcamp on Lake Eustis is one of our favorites and usually has live music on the weekends in the afternoon hours!

*If you like to really take your time paddling, taking lots of pictures and want to explore all side canals off the main canal, a four hour paddle is also recommended.
