Your Included Excursions

You have the following excursions included in this offer.

Gatan Expedition

Your Included Excursions
Enjoy a panoramic tour along the world famous Panama Canal. This trip will take you into the Gatun Lake, a major part of the Panama Canal, where you will see and learn about the fascinating tropical wildlife of the lake and the surrounding forest. You will explore some of the islands formed after the creation of which was once the largest artificial lake in the world. With a little luck and with the help of a naturalist guide, you can see crocodiles, caimans, sloths, monkeys and a host of birds native to the area.

Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal

Your Included Excursions
The Panama Canal is known as the 8th Wonder of the World. It is approximately 80 kilometers long between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. During our visit to this engineering marvel, we will get the chance to see the Canal gates of Miraflores Locks. The locks function as water lifts: they raise ships from sea level (the Pacific or the Atlantic) to the level of Gatun Lake (26 meters above sea level); ships then sail the channel through the Continental Divide.

Miraflores Visitors Center (MVC) as their new expression of the permanent commitment of the Panama Canal Authority to strengthen the public’s knowledge of the Canal.

With a total area of 18,000 m2 (a closed area of 6,000 m2 and 12,000 m2 of open area), the MVC is located on the East side of the Miraflores Locks. The exhibitions include historical objects of Canal operations, interactive modules, video presentations, and models of the Panama Canal.

Four exhibition halls, organised by themes, constitute the heart of the MVC. The following is a brief description of each exhibition hall:

- Exhibition Hall 1: Canal History. It portrays the background, technological innovations, and sanitary initiatives that went hand in hand with the construction of the Canal. This exhibition hall honors the hundreds of men and women who made this achievement possible.
- Exhibition Hall 2: Water: Source of Life. It emphasizes the importance of water, conservation of the environment, protection of the Canal Watershed, and the diversity of fauna and flora.
- Exhibition Hall 3: The Canal in Action. This exhibition hall depicts in an amusing manner how the Canal operates and allows us the experience of being inside a navigation simulator and one of the lock culverts.
- Exhibition Hall 4: The Canal of the World. This hall provides information on the importance of the Canal to world trade, describes the trade routes it serves and the main commodities, identifies its main users, and allows visitors to get acquainted with the different types of vessels that transit the waterway.

Optional Excursions

You may choose to add the following excursions at the next stage of the booking process - subject to availability. 

San Blas (Guna Yala) - Beach Day

Optional Excursions
The San Blas Archipelago on the Caribbean coast of Panama has 365 islands and is home to the most famous of Panama's 7 indigenous Indian tribes, the Gunas known for their beautiful Molas. On this fabulous day, you will enjoy the crystal clear waters of San Blas. We leave at approximately 5 am in 4x4 cars, and we will travel around 2 hours approx. Until arriving at the port of Carti in San Blas. You will take a 20-minute motorised boat that will take us to Isla Aguja, where you can enjoy the Caribbean Sea. 

Includes: Transport, Breakfast, Lunch with drinks, Visit to 2 islands and natural pool, Visit to the Indigenous Community, Islands and port taxed, Tour in English

Panama Partial Transit

Optional Excursions
Passengers board the Boat to start the water portion of the tour. We enter the canal at the north end of the Gailard cut, where the Chagres River flows into the canal. The Gaillard Cut (also known as Culebra Cut because its curves resemble a snake) is one of the main points of interest for visitors because it was carved through the Continental Divide and this section of the Canal is full of history and geological value. The vessel will travel the Cut's 13.7 kilometers on the way to Pedro Miguel Locks.

Before reaching the Pedro Miguel Locks at the southern end of the Cut, you will be able to view the new Centennial Bridge which crosses over the Canal. Next, we will enter Pedro Miguel Locks, which is one of the two sets of locks on the Pacific side, and here the vessel is lowered 9 meters in one step. You will then enter Miraflores Lake, which is a small artificial body of fresh water that separates Pedro Miguel from Miraflores Locks, the latter being the final set of locks before reaching the Pacific Ocean. At Miraflores Locks the vessel is lowered 18 meters in two distinct steps.

Once in the Pacific Ocean the vessel will sail to the beautiful Flamenco Marina where passengers disembark. On the way to Flamenco, you will pass under the Bridge of the Americas, and later, you will be able to admire the Bay of Panama and Panama City's splendorous skyline. The whole experience could take from 6 to 8 hours (according the Panama Canal Authority’s decision), depending on the traffic and the itinerary for that day.
