What You Can Expect
Board a high-speed motorboat that navigates the waterways of the Panama Canal, and marvel at the container ships that transit the canal daily. After your captain turns off the boat engine, enjoy a leisurely cruise that meanders along the forested banks of Gatun Lake. Your guide points out native flora and fauna of the Panama Rainforest, known for its biodiversity.
You’ll get an up-close encounter with the wildlife on a visit to Monkey Island. Disembark the boat at this protected refuge and be on the lookout for primates such as capuchin monkeys, three-toed sloths and howler monkeys as well as various types of bright-beaked toucans and other birdlife.
Your 4-hour tour concludes with the cruise back to Gamboa and the return drive to your Panama City hotel.
Please note: A minimum of four people per booking is required.
We had a good guide for the two of us. Good experience all around: three types of monkeys and a young crocodile were special to see.
George was a great guide. Had a fantastic time and definitely recommend this tour.
Great trip! Great Guide! This tour met all our expectation.
Our guide was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. And that he went out of his way to make us feel welcome in his country.
Highlight of our trip!! Everything was perfect!
Our Monkey Island Cruise was spectacular. We saw monkeys, lizards, baby crocodiles, and a variety of birds. So glad we did this cruise.
Excellent family tour. Tour leader was terrific as was the boat captain. Highlight was definitely getting to feed the monkeys on Monkey Island.
If you're in Panama City this should be #1 on your list.

The tour guide on this was wonderful a young man whom wanted to share his vast knowledge with us on the lakes and canal. Unfortunately when we got to the Island we were going to kayak but the equipment was locked away and no key! My son was eagerly awaiting the secret WW2 US communications center on one of the islands but this has been taken off the tour due to the widening of the canal.
Tour description and what happened are quite different. The boat ride was very short,less than an hour. There was no disembarking the boat, no kayaking, nothing but a very short boat ride. We then went to a nature preserve which was a poor excuse for a zoo. We were given a stale sandwich and a drink to picnic with. The most expensive tour that we took and most disappointing.
