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.

Great time with a great tour guide. The canals were amazing and the Craig Cats are the funnest thing on the water. Both forward facing and easy to have a conversation at idle speed. At high speed they glide like a rocket across the water....More

Yes, I'm sorry to say, it could certainly be a problem. Depending on water levels, there could be a foot or two (or more) between the seat and the dock. My husband had a knee replaced in January, and although he can play... More
