Miraflores Locks - Panama Canal

Day 1 Panama Canal Partial Canal Transit

  • 1 Lunch
This morning a 45 minute bus ride takes you to the town of Gamboa where our vessel awaits to bring us on a partial transit of the Panama Canal. Our exploration of this engineering wonder begins at the north end of the Gaillard Cut - builders faced unprecedented challenges as they carved their way through the continental divide's solid rock for nearly 9 miles. At the southern end of the Cut we'll enter the Pedro Miguel Locks, taking us into the man-made Miraflores Lake. Next, we'll be lowered 18 meters in the Miraflores Locks as we make our entrance into the Pacific Ocean. Disembark at the Flamenco Marina where you will meet your driver to return to your hotel for the afternoon.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
