Enjoy an approximate 60-minute scenic sightseeing cruise along the Panama Canal until reaching the famous Miraflores Locks. Depending on the number of boats present on your date of travel, you'll most likely have to wait a short while before cruising inside the locks. The wait is absolutely worth it, so relax and enjoy the scenery until it’s your turn!
When going through the Miraflores Locks, your ship is raised up to 54 feet (16 meters) in a two-step process. This activity is achieved by sending water from Pedro Miguel's lake to fill the chambers where the ship is locked. Once the process is finished, you'll continue cruising to the Pedro Miguel Locks before arriving at the Gamboa pier, where you'll jump back into the coach for the return transfer to your Panama City hotel.

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.
