We invite you to discover the Eighth Wonder of the World from an unparalleled perspective: aboard a boat!
This excursion begins with ground transportation to the village of Gamboa and Gatun Lake, home to the Dredging Division of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) facilities. We begin our boat tour of the Canal, through the Culebra Cut, built across the Continental Divide and where the Chagres River flows into the Canal. Here, the Operation of the Canal begins, and we navigate to the Pedro Miguel Locks and observe the work on the Panama Canal expansion project.
Once at the Pedro Miguel Locks, the ship is lowered 9 meters to the Miraflores Lake, which we will pass through to reach the Miraflores Locks, where the ship is lowered 18 meters in two stages to the Pacific Ocean. From there, the ship navigates to the Flamenco Marina where we disembark.
The tour may take the reverse order, departing Miraflores to Gamboa, based on the recommendations of the Panama Canal Authority.
