Rusty Anchor Sightseeing Cruise – See Lake Dora and the Dora Canal

Baby Gator

Captain Dan pointed out a baby alligator as he slipped into a small creek off the Dora Canal which connects Lake Dora to Lake Eustis. Both lakes are part of the Harris Chain which are popular for bass fishing and recreational boating.

We were visiting Mt. Dora with a group of bloggers and the Rusty Anchor hosted us for a spectacular two hour tour of Lake Dora and the Dora Canal. During the tour they offer one of the best chances to see wildlife and local plant life as well as history of the region. Below are some of the photos I shot.
