'Capture the Moment' Photography Rainforest Tour on Gatun Lake, Panama Canal

Just the most wonderful experience!  We had just come through the Panama Canal from the Caribbean to the Pacific Ocean the day before, so we wanted something different.  Andrew had helped us arrange private transportation to reach him in Gamboa well ahead of our tour.  We were able to get so many good photos of the wildlife thanks to Andrew's keen eye and instruction.  Francisco, the driver, spotted many animals too.  Andrew was the most gracious and knowledgeable host.  The most worthwhile excursion, especially if you are into quality cameras.  I loved Andrew's comment when my husband asked him to take a picture of us on the boat with his little Nikon camera.  My husband asked if he knew how to work it, he said..nice set up!  Cell phones and little cameras are nice for pictures, his Cannon's on board are nice for photographs.  We each were given our scan disc that had mega capacity.

Hello Joan & Rick Thank you. It was such a pity that your water taxi from the Cruise ship to shore was delayed by two hours, which meant we could only go out onto the lake at noon, which is the least favourable time for the wildlife and photos. Andrew

Andrew was a wonderful guide on this photography excursion. I was the only one signed up for my chosen date/time and he kept in touch prior to the trip to ensure that all was set and even helped me arrange transportation; it was wonderful. The captain truly has an eye for the animals and spotted things from far away. Both Andrew and the captain were wonderful people to spend the afternoon with and I hope to return to Panamá again soon to repeat the excursion...you'll always see something different!

Excellant wildlife photography opportunity!!

I was thrilled to find this tour when looking for things to do while in Panama. Andrew and Johnny were great at spotting the wildlife and putting the boat in a good position to photograph. They were also great hosts from beginning to end. The provided professional cameras, Canon EOS with 150-600mm lenses on tripods and specialized photography chairs were fabulous. This is great for beginners or professional photographers. Only 4 participants, not 500!!! A rare rainforest opportunity.

Thank you. We enjoy the tours as much as you do, one of the main reasons why we kept the boat to a maximum of 4 seats. Look forward to seeing you again. Andrew

Mein tollstes Erlebnis in Panama

Wer auf der Suche nach einer grandiosen Tour mit Abenteuer auf dem Panama Kanal (Gatun Lake) ist, sollte diese Tour buchen. Ich war zunächst unsicher, ob es die richtige Tour für mich ist. Ich hatte mein Hotel in Panama City und musste morgens anreisen. Schon bei der Organisation der Anreise bekam ich Unterstützung. Ein sehr netter Kontakt (Andrew) half mir bei all meinen Fragen, denn ich spreche kein Spanisch und musste wie gesagt morgens aus Panama City anreisen. Doch Andrew unterdtützte mich und nahm mir alle Zweifel - und alles klappte perfekt!Die Tour selbst ist ein wunderschöner abenteuerlicher Ausflug. Wir haben sehr viele Vögel, Affen (meine Güte, sind Brüllaffen laut), ein kleines Krokodil und andere Tiere gesehen - und auf dem Kanal natürlich ein paar Schiffe. Ein Highlight auf dem See war, als plötzlich eine Seekuh direkt vor unserem Boot auftauchte. :-)Abgerundet wird all dies durch das Team: sehr nette und hilfsbereite Leute mit einem super Wissen zu Flora und Fauna. Boot und Foto-Equipment waren ebenfalls super!Abschließend muss ich sagen, dass diese Tour mein mit Abstand schönstes Erlebnis in Panama war. Egal, ob man blutiger Anfänger, Hobbyfotograf, gar kein Fotograf oder Profi ist, diese Tour passt!
