Harris Chain of Lakes

Set amongst the quaint towns of Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares and Leesburg, is the Harris Chain of Lakes. This chain is a part of the Ocklawaha River Basin and includes Lakes Dora, Beauclair, Carlton, Eustis, Apopka, Harris, Little Harris, Griffin and Yale. All are connected by navigable waterways, with the exception of Lake Yale. It’s the largest chain of lakes in Florida covering over 50,000 acres of fresh water in the Lake County. The chain has become an extremely popular boating destination for many reasons. Here’s a few reasons the Harris chain should be next on your boating destination list!

My family and I have been renting from here for a few months now. We absolutely love coming here! The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Every time we come, Dustin gets us all set up quickly, but safely. He already knows us! I highly recommend going through them. We look forward to many more boating adventures!

After purchasing a Four Winns bowrider from a private seller, I took it here for an inspection and service. Jason was great to work with. He was up front, and got everything I needed done without trying to sell me more. He actually convinced me that I didn’t need to do some repairs that I thought I needed. I am definitely coming back.

What a pleasure to work with all you folks. Jason has been a great resource for each of the boats I’ve had there. We’ve seen Julia grow up there and become a great mom. Susan is always so friendly and helpful. Joey was the first to get me all set up with a slip. And you have given us great boat advice and deals on each of our rather numerous purchases.
By far our best boating resource experience is with you folks!

Mount Dora Marina has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the very moment we walked in for the first time, we were treated with such refreshing honesty and given the utmost courtesy, dignity and respect. We checked off one of our lifelong dreams and bought our very first boat here. We were and are still treated like family. If anyone is even remotely thinking about or dreaming about a boat, sincerely it’s the only place to even consider.
