Panama Canal Boat Transit

Truly An Experience-of-a-Lifetime: Cross The Panama Canal

Crossing the Panama Canal is truly a once in a lifetime experience and a full day’s adventure. Your 48-mile journey begins at the Pacific entrance shortly after your 7:30 AM boat departure. Dine as you chug along through the greenery and approach the beginning of the three sets of locks that will raise you a total of almost 10 stories (85-feet!) to the main elevation of the Panama Canal and back down again. These six steps- three up and three down- are an unparalleled engineering marvel to this very day. Wave to the workers and tourists at the Miraflores Visitors Center through two-steps; push along to the Pedro Miguel locks, and lower back down three stairs in the Gatun Locks, arriving to the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal. You will have a chance to witness the around-the-clock work on the Panama Canal Expansion project. Your guide narrates your adventure as you snap unimaginable shots.
