Visiting Central Florida and want to experience something out of the ordinary? Rusty Anchor Boat Tours is located just north of Orlando and west of Daytona Beach in the town of Mount Dora. Mount Dora sits on a ridge overlooking the 4,500 acre Lake Dora and is known for its historic architecture, eclectic shops, excellent food and annual festivals.

We offer unique cruises from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Our most popular tour is the 2 hour Dora Canal Cruise. On this trip you’ll travel the old Elfin River through a natural Cypress Swamp and could have the opportunity to see Alligators, Turtles and wildlife galore! Watch Ospreys swooping down to catch fish, Bald Eagles and maybe even a River Otter or two! If you would like to pair a boat tour with a meal, check out the Dora Canal Lunch or Sunset Dinner Cruise. Only here for the evening? Sunset Cruise is the one for you!

With Rusty Anchor Boat Tours you will experience one of a kind, narrated boat tours of wild Florida with true Florida natives. Being from this area, our staff is happy to share their knowledge about the wildlife, point out Alligators and Turtles sunning on the logs, explain the history, flora and fauna. So feel free to book online or give us a call, we look forward to seeing you!
