What You Can Expect
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.

Outstanding experience! We brought our ailing father for a 'bucket list' item. Everyone was so very helpful from the moment we arrived and we had a wonderful time.
The Panama Canal Partial Transit Sightseeing Cruise was an amazing experience, it was well organized, the lunch was good, the drivers were on time for our pick ups! Perla was great, she was very friendly, nice and knowledgeable. great job guys! I will book with you again.
We were treated well with hotel pick-up and drop-off. Plenty of drinks and food included in the price. Knowledgeable tour director. No stress.
This tour was amazing!
Our trip through the canal was wonderful. We were on a yacht that was originally commissioned by J.P. Morgan. Our guide J.C. was really knowledgeable and entertaining. It is something we will always remember.
Exceded all our expectations. Great guide, perfect seating. Highly recommend.
Excellent service my wife had to cancel the trip because her mother passed away but I had to continue the trip ,couldn't get a flight out of panama , at the tour boat food was good service was execellent would not hesitate recommending Viator to any one . Nice of Viator to refund 100% of my wife's ticket money didn't expect that . Thank you all once again looking forward to book with you again .
Amazing experience on the boat. Elmer the guide was very informative, helpful and so enthusiastic. Food was good and staff all helpful. Could be better organised for transport before and after the trip. A must.
This was a great experience and as we were on the Isla Maodre, a small boat, we were able to see as the water went up and down while in the locks.
I found the cruise to be absolutely awesome . I had seen bring a book . but getting fed the wonderful meals going through the canal was such a wonderful experience I would rate this tour a five star
