Kayaking in the scenic Dora Canal
If you're looking for a river that is calm, safe, and perfect for beginners to learn on or for riders who just want to paddle leisurely down the canal, then check out the Dora Canal's kayak rental program. With beginner-friendly paddles and boats, this program provides a great introduction to kayaking or another diversion from mundane life.

Available at a number of convenient locations in Central Florida from April through October (weather permitting), we provide single full day rentals as well as combo packages which provide both a paddle board and kayak. All boats are oar powered, user comfortable, and stable. Paddlers of all ages can enjoy the Dora Canal as we provide an ideal location for cyclists, walkers and joggers to enjoy the canal trail.

The Dora Canal stretches from Lake Jessup to Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando, Florida. It provides a scenic and leisurely route for bike riders, runners and walkers as it passes through five Central Florida lakes and numerous parks. Stretching east to west across Central Florida in Orange County, it is the perfect place for kayak rentals with its scenic beauty over water ways surrounded by homes.

Master Paddle University and the Dora Canal Kayak Renter's Association sponsor kayak rentals for a fee of $30 per day per boat, and provide full instruction on paddling techniques.

The Dora Canal Kayak Rental Program was first established in 2002 and is in continuous operation at seven locations with two new locations being added each year. The program began at two of the lakes including Lake Jessup and Lake Maitland offering rental services along the canal route in those two communities only. The second addition was the addition of Ocala, Florida located on the trail near to Metro Orlando, which opened in 2009, 2009 and 2010.
Itinerary

Explore part of the Harris Chain of Lakes and the scenic Dora Canal on your own by a single kayak, tandem kayak or paddle board rental. Upon check-in, we will go over a map of the area and make suggestions on the best paddle route to take. Before going on the water, we will give instruction to anyone that needs it and send you on your way. Water, dry bags, hats, and sunscreen available for sale at our check in kiosk. Public restrooms available on-site. You can choose a single kayak, tandem kayak or paddle board (Book per person, not per vessel). This is a family friendly activity. Morning rentals provide a quieter paddle experience in the canal with less motorboat traffic.
