Our Tour Company, Panama Canal Tours offers three excursion options to enable you to revel in The Panama Canal experience.
The first and most recommended option is to navigate the Canal in one of our tour boats, traveling from one ocean to the other; an experience that can only be lived in Panama!
The second option is to take our city tour which includes a thrilling visit to the Canal Visitors center and the Miraflores Locks where you will be witness just how it is that ships are elevated above sea level. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Canal Museum and the interactive virtual reality simulation center where you will be able to experience the entire canal transit as if you were traveling on the bridge of a large, ocean-going ship, replete with replicas of the instrumentation used to guide these incredible ocean-going vessels.
The third option that has become very popular is to take an alternative tour to the transits. These are combined tours by boat visiting the jungle and the rainforest, a double experience, the Canal and the Jungle. These tours are not transit by boat, or passing the locks, are tours within Gatun Lake combined with the jungle and the rainforest, but you will be in the waters of the Canal and possibly the huge commercial or cruise ships pass by you.
Depending upon the time you have available, choose the most appropriate option for you and we’ll take care of the rest.
