Know More about this tour

The day will begin with an 8:00 am pick up at your hotel. This tour combines the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal with an ecological boat ride on the Gatun Lake. Upon departing from the pier, your specialized guide will focus on three elements: Culture, History and Ecology.  These guides are considered experts in their fields and have been specifically chosen for your tour.

Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, the vast jungle area that is now the Gatun Lake was teeming with an overwhelming abundance of wildlife.  As the region was flooded to create the lake, animals took refuge in the mountain peaks, which are now the many islands that dot the renowned lake.

You and your interpretive guide will slowly cruise the back channels, island and bays that make up this unique ecosystem. Glide past lush rainforests to a secluded region of the lake and witness first-hand the splendor and excitement of the jungle. Exotic birds, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and crocodiles are just a few of the animals that you could see in their native surroundings. The sights, sounds and scents that make up this beautiful, tropical jungle will engulf you.

Cameras are a must as this is considered the world’s premier location for viewing monkeys and other animals in the wild.

Before or after your cruise on Gatun Lake, you will have the opportunity to visit the Miraflores Locks,  where you will have  the opportunity to view the gargantuan ships that make their way through the Miraflores Locks’ chambers and visit exhibitions which include historical objects of Canal operations, interactive modules, video presentations, and models of the Panama Canal.

  • This is not a 5 hour lake tour but a one hour lake tour that can be booked directly from Gambao Resort for 35. Additionally the entry price for the Miraflores Locks is 15. Better to spend the extra money on an uber as only a driver and not a specialized guide is provided
