Dora Canal Kayak Tour


A local icon, old Florida cypress swamp. Blink your eyes and you are in Seminole Indian country. Big trees, lots of birds. The Great Blue, Little Blue, Tri-colored & Night Herons, Great Egret, Osprey, Anhinga and Cormorants all nest in these beautiful tall trees. The sounds of the rookery let us know that Spring has sprung. A great tour for the early riser it's a real nice 2-3 hour getaway from it all!

Manatee Whisperers of the Wekiva River June 2017









Just the three of us set out this morning on the Wekiva River. Heading downstream we were met by a Little Blue Heron becoming an adult. It is a stunning bird and while in its “calico” phase it changes from white to blue and remains that way the rest of its life. A short distance later we had Manatees right under our kayaks. We very rarely see this on the Wekiva River so we just drifted quietly and watched them play and eat. They are such gentle animals and we felt truly blessed to be there with them. Further downstream the Scarlet Hibiscus was in full bloom. Add in some Giant Leather Fern, a few Turtles, a Great Blue Heron and a small Alligator swimming down the river, we found ourselves in paddling bliss. Today we truly were the Manatee Whisperers of the Wekiva River.



Silver River... no doubt it's a special place to paddle

For this tour??? We'll just let the pictures tell the story ;-)

























25 MPH Winds Can't Keep a Good Man Down :-)























Paddling Blackwater Creek was fine but when we saw whitecaps on Lake Norris we decided to abort the mission :-). The wind might have run us off the lake but we were all ready to paddle and Dora Canal proved to be a great option! The rookery is in full chatter and if they are not already sitting on their nests the birds are in full breeding plumage. The Little Blue Herons are sporting their cobalt blue bills, Anhingas are full on green eyed and the Great Blue Herons have their shaggy fronts and their wispy heads going. The White Ibis bills and legs are bright red and the Limpkins are calling and chasing each other across the river. We got a good look at about an 8 foot Gator and a little guy too. It was awesome to be kayaking with our friends from Finland again. It’s like paddling with family!
