Travelers can enjoy the canal in several ways, beginning with the excellent Miraflores Locks Visitor Center just outside the capital. More ambitious explorers can book a variety of tours taking in all or part of the 77km (48mi) trip across the continent.
Very interesting tour. Great way to learn about the engineering feats accomplished by the United States. Can be very hot. Do not forget sunblock. Food was very good. Guide was very interesting and informative, but the P A system was hard to hear in some areas of the boat. All in all a tour you should not miss while visiting Panama.
This cruise was worth its weight in gold. The commentator was absolutely fabulous. His voice was clear and sharp (I am hearing impaired and had no problem understanding) To all potential visitors; Its a must.
Wonderful experience. The guide was informative and entertaining. The food was more than ample and quite tasty. The boat ride was very pleasing on it's own.
Many travelers are happier with a half-canal trip that traverses only one lock, or even shorter tours around Lake Gatún.
