Panama Canal Partial Transit

We had a grand old time. The tour was well organised and enjoyable. The trans course through the locks was highly interesting just for the fact to see it from the other side. Lunch was delicious and professionally served. ...Stefan H., Panama – See more reviews

We will start our journey from the dock of the Dredging Division, which performs the essential task of keeping the shipping channel clear for business. Then we will begin our boating adventure.

We will navigate through the Panama Canal, entering the locks and then the ferry boat will be raised 56 feet above sea level at the Miraflores Locks and then 26 feet at the Pedro Miguel Locks.

Next, we will pass by the Gaillard Cut where you will be able to observe the Gamboa Community as well as the Centennial Bridge and the Bridge of the Americas.

At the end of the tour we will return to our starting point by bus.
