On a guided tour of the Panama Canal, your boat will ascend and descend 26 meters in three separate chambers. The Gaillard Cut is a major tourist attraction because it was carved through the Continental Divide and is rich in history and natural beauty. Continue on to Gatun Lake and the Gatun Locks, the only pair of Atlantic-facing locks.

Day 1: Panama Canal Full Transit

  • 1 Lunch
This morning starts with an early transfer to the Flamenco Marina where you will embark on your cruise to transit the Panama Canal. After cruising in the Pacific Ocean and admiring great views of the Panama City skyline, you will come to your first set of locks. The Miraflores locks will take your boat up 18 meters in two steps whereby you will reach Miraflores Lake. Next, you will come upon the Pedro Miguel locks in which the boat will ascend 9 meters. After this ascent, you will reach the Gaillard Cut, where the Chagres River enters the canal. The Gaillard Cut is a main point of interest as it was carved through the Continental Divide and is full of history and geologic splendor. Here you will also see the Panama Canal expansion project. Continue to Gatun Lake and on to the Gatun Locks. The locks are the only set of locks on the Atlantic side and here your boat will descend 26 meters in three distinct chambers. Finish cruising to Colon where you will disembark and return to your hotel. A magical journey is full of history and awe as you cruise the Panama Canal.
