See Osprey

Don’t get them confused with the popular Osprey with the white chest. Whereas the American Bald eagle has an all black chest. The Ospreys always catch their fish so when they fly it is facing forward. They have a tendency to drop their meal if the fish is not facing forward. The Osprey needs to have their aerodynamics in place in order to carry the fish to their nest. You may even spot a nest with newborn babies if it's the right time of the year while enjoying the employee appreciation day.

Look at Egrets

Then there are the beautiful, graceful, large slender Egrets. Egrets are a white in color and elegant looking. They are usually spotted along the shoreline or standing on the lily pads trying to catch a fish.

Wonder at Great Blue Herons

The Great Blue Heron is a familiar face on the waters. It's a long-legged wading bird with blue and grey colors. There are over 60 species of herons and the Great Blue Heron is the largest of the species.

Ahh at the Anhinga

In addition to your memorable employee appreciation day you can always see the Anhinga on a tree branch spreading their wings out to dry. The Anhinga is black in color with white on its wings and sometimes called the “snakebird”. The Cormorant which everyone mistakes for the Anhinga also swims in the water. It pops its long slender neck up and then dives back under looking for its prey.

Wow at the Gators

It is sometimes hard to see the alligators gliding across the canals, lakes or on the Dead River. If you really watch they may be found laying on the lily pads catching the warmth of the sun.

Also it is a rare sighting if you see a manatee in the “Harris Chain of Lakes” while cruising on the employee appreciation day . They are being sighted more and more. Manatees are vegetarians and eat the algae on the bottom of the lakes. They really enjoy a whole head of fresh lettuce and fresh water to drink.

Plenty of Employee Appreciate Day Cruising

Your employee appreciation day cruise will be filled with relaxing ride on the “Chain of Lakes” in Central Florida. There are 8 connecting lakes: Harris, Apopka, Eustis, Dora, Beauclair, Carlton, Yale and Griffin. Lake Griffin is known to have the largest alligator population of the lakes. You also can take Lake Griffin to the St Johns river. If no trees have fallen down you could travel all the way to the Atlantic Ocean ending up by St Augustine.

Not to mention the Burrell Lock & Dam which connects Lake Eustis to Lake Griffin. The locks help boaters to navigate from one lake to the other. You enter your boat into the lock and depending which lake you're traveling to the lock raises or lowers the water levels to the lake you are going to. There is a 3 foot water level difference to Lake Eustis and Lake Griffin, so as the lock opens your boat is at the correct water level of the lake.
