Panama Canal Partial Transit Sightseeing Cruise

Panama Canal Partial Transit Sightseeing Cruise

This partial transit cruise through the Miraflores Locks takes you into one of three lock systems used along the Panama Canal — an experience not to be missed! The canal’s construction is considered one of the largest and most challenging engineering projects ever undertaken before it was opened in 1914, enabling efficient passage between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

After hotel pickup in the morning, you’ll travel toward La Playita pier on an approximate 1.5-hour drive through Panama City. Journey along the Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador), a man-made network of four small islands near the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Enjoy breathtaking views of the canal and Panama City skyline before boarding your vessel.

Cruise for approximately 60 minutes along the Panama Canal until reaching the 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 it’s your ship’s turn inside the locks, but the scene before you is worth it. Enjoy great photo ops as you watch vessels traveling through Miraflores.

You’ll be amazed as your ship is raised up to 54 feet in a two-step process while water from the lake fills the lock’s chambers. Once the process is finished, continue cruising to the Pedro Miguel Locks before arriving at the Gamboa pier.

Here, disembark to re-board the coach for the return transfer to your Panama City hotel.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

The reason to go to Panama. You can't miss the locks. It was very informative, fun and the food was good too.

This is a and #34;must do and #34; tour. The partial tour was just right to learn, actually experience the canal on the oldest tour boat and to go through 100 year-old locks. Both the land and boat english-speaking guides helped make this tour informative and enjoyable. Don and #39;the forget the sunscreen and a hat!.

We are so grateful we decided to do this tour. It is a complete day with plenty of food, information, and time in the canal. The full transit would have been too tiring. You go through two locks and the experience is amazing. This cruise does not include time at the Miraflores visitor center FYI
