I did not go on this tour to learn about Mt Dora. I went to experience a Craig Cat. Although our tour was overbooked and therefore delayed, we were well accomodated for our inconvenience. Craigcats are an adventure unto themselves. Yes you will get wet,...More

The little boats were fun to drive and after a little instructions we were able to maneuver them around. The tour around the lake and thru the canal was so much fun. We will be returning to Mt. Dora to enjoy this wonderful experience again.

It was total confusion upon arrival. Captain Jack didn't have a roster of who was going on the tour at that hour, didn't have enough operating boats, they were short on the neck speakers and only half of those even worked! So more than half...More
