Providing everything you need to have the best time on the water!

Paddle the Scenic Dora Canal

We invite you to discover the scenic waterways of the Lake Harris Chain of Lakes. This is the largest Chain of Lakes in the state of Florida! 

We are located on the shores of Lake Dora, less than a half mile from the scenic Dora Canal. The Dora Canal is a vibrant stretch of waterway that connects Lake Dora with Lake Eustis in the Harris Chain. Paddling this mile long canal in Lake County takes you back in time to experience the real Florida. Large cypress trees dressed in Spanish moss line the canal, providing a thick canopy of welcomed shade from the Florida heat. 

Native wildlife you could see on your paddle includes birds like anhinga (snake bird), cormorants, great blue herons, egrets, limpkins, hawks, osprey, and bald eagles.  Various reptiles that inhabit this canal include turtles and alligators. River otters can be spotted on occasion.

Paddle Route

Our paddle route consists of an out and back route approximately three miles roundtrip including the Dora Canal. For half-day trips, we can recommend paddling some side canals off of the main waterway or paddle in for lunch at Fish Camp on Lake Eustis. This local lakefront restaurant usually has live music on their porch on the weekends. The friendly atmosphere and lakeside vibe are why we love this place! 

The Harris Chain of Lakes is very popular for all watercrafts including motorboats. If you plan on visiting us on a weekend day, we STRONGLY recommend starting your adventure in the morning hours when motorboat traffic is less heavy.
