Terrible. Did not see any wildlife. The worse part is that our boat was extremely hard to steer the boat to the left. It was almost like work just to steer the boat. They need to check out their equipment before putting people in a defective boat.

Such a great group tour! We had a large group ranging from ages 9-50 yrs old. A good time was had by all! Our captain was funny, informative, and entertaining all along the way! We were able to see the bald eagle couple that call this lake home too! Beautiful!

Danger BOB!! he’s the best tour guide. So funny and informative and super helpful. We had the best time and tour. Completely worth the drive from Tampa and worth the price. Mount Dora is the cutest little town. A perfect place to get food and unwind after taking the boat tour. This tour is a must !!

Fast and fun! Captain Todd was awesome! He was funny with his great dad jokes, gave us lots of history and cool stories. Driving the boat was easy and safe. You have to take this tour, it's unforgettable! We loved zipping across Mt Dora Lake in the hot sun and then smoothly wandering through the canal learning about the wildlife and history. Will definitely do it again!
