Panama Canal Partial Transit Boat Tour
  • Panama Canal Partial Transit Boat Tour

    The Panama Canal, a true engineering marvel, awaits you for this partial tour as we adventure through the Pacific locks of the Panama Canal that will involve approximately 5 to 6 hours. You will navigate, in addition to the entire entrance to the Panama Canal, the locks at Miraflores and Pedro Miguel, living the experience of the raising and lowering of our ship above and below sea level.

    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador), Av Amador, Panama City Panama

    Know locally as just “The Causeway”, which is another oceanfront boardwalk area ; Naos, Perico and Flamenco Island. These islands are connected by a road (The Causeway) that was constructed using the material extracted during the original construction of the Canal.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Bridge of the Americas, Balboa, Panama City Panama

    You will, as well, get an excellent view of the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and the majestic Las Americas Bridge. The importance of this bridge can not be overlooked as not only does it connect Panama City with the rest of the country but more importantly is one of the two bridges which cross the Panama Canal and effectively create the connection between North and Central America with South America.

    Pass By: Panama Canal Tours, Flamenco Marina, Panamá, Panama

    We pass through the Pacific entrance to the Canal out into Panama Bay you will notice the formidable skyscrapers the fill the skyline over Panama City. Likewise we´ll get an excellent view of the group of island outside the bay which form a natural protection for the Canal entrance.

    Pass By: Miraflores Visitor Center, East Side of the Miraflores Locks, Panama City Panama

    You will be inside the Miraflores locks, you will see how the ship will rise 9 meters above sea level. The Panama Canal, one of the world’s engineering marvels, awaits you in this partial transit voyage through the locks on the Pacific side of the canal on an approximately 5 to 6 hours journey. You will navigate the entire Pacific entrance to the Canal and the locks at Miraflores and Pedro Miguel where you will experience how our boat is either raised above sea level or lower down to sea level.

    Pass By: Chagres River, Gamboa Panama

    When the tour boat journey begins at the north we depart from Gamboa which is located at the northern entrance to the Corte Culebra. The Corte Culebra section of the Canal is known by this name because of the similarity of its curves with those of a snake (Corte=Cut. Culebra=Snake). This is also the point in the Canal where the Chagres River flows into the Canal. This is actually one of the most interesting sections of the canal as it was cut through the solid rock formation which constitutes the Continental Divide, giving this section of the canal grand historic and geographic importance. The giant Chagres River feeds fresh water to maintain the Canal operation, our tour boat will traverse the entire 14 kilometers which comprise this unique section of the Canal on our way to the locks at Pedro Miguel, there, at Pedro Miguel, you will observe the entrance to the newly inaugurated third set of locks on the Canal through which the post-panamax mega-ships now pass.

      Everything about the trip was fun. Even with rain the trip was excellent.

      The breakfast and lunch were not great but this experience is not about the food.

      Every aspect of the trip is well orchestrated.

      This tour is great. You get right down to the operation of the Canal and see everything that happens. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and the tourboat uses Bose speakers so you can hear everything. However, prior to the tour, contacting the tour operator is almost impossible. The do not respond to emails and no one answers the phones.

      This tour gave us a really good overview of the Panama City and the most interesting sites. Ed, our guide, was very knowledgeable and most of all very engaging and had a great sense of humor. The traffic in and around the city is horrendous in the early morning and late afternoon so we got picked up at 10am which really made the travel easy and fast between sites giving us more time to explore.
      I recommend Ed.

      Wonderful experience. The only problem is it takes too long, on a very hot and crowded ship, making it tiring for everybody. Panama Canal, however, is marvellous and the locks deserve to be known. The lunch offered is very good, simple food, but well prepared and plentiful. Lots of water bottles, but the soft drinks are of very poor quality. The tour guide is attentive and knowledgeable and is ready to answer your questions. We left our hotel at 9 o'clock and only arrived back at six PM, very tired.

      Being able to take a boat on the Panama Canal and experience going through the locks is a must when in Panama. The tour we participated in was ok. The boat, crew and food on the boat were all great. The guide did a wonderful job, however, the speaker system only worked on part of the boat so if you weren't on the one level, you missed everything he said. There is so much to know about the canal so missing the information is unfortunate. The other problem we had is we were told to meet at this one place at 8:30 am. We arrived that morning and ended up waiting until about 10:30 before we took off. We rode on the bus to the boat launch area which took about another hour. Personally I would have preferred to have taken a taxi to the boat launch area and meet up with our group there. Eliminate the 2 hours of waiting around. Once we got on the boat the rest of the tour went fine. I understand that tours are at the mercy of the canal authority as far as departure times but there were certainly things in the schedule that could change to make it much more efficient.

      This was a disappointment. After a lot of research, we went with this particular tour to satisfy three generations of interest in the Panama Canal. While I am glad we all saw and experienced the Canal together, the tour itself was such a let down. I know things are slower in Panama than in the US where we were visiting from. And I know it is a long wait for boats to go through the canal. But I have experienced really well run tours in slower paced countries. This wasn't that. We waited endlessly on the bus more than once. There was no education history about the Canal or what we were about to see. There was no video. There was no passion for what was happening. Just droning on about how it's not his fault. These people have clearly led the tour and dealt with visitors for too many years. It showed and we felt it. Once we did get on the boat, the food and drink and boat itself are all fine. But again, the bland voiceover and lack of engagement with the visitors made this such a disappointment. And a very very expensive disappointment. I'd find another option. Maybe a half day. Maybe a different company. Maybe a private tour with a guide who cares and can make your visit meaningful and memorable.

      While the Canal of course is very impressive the tour was spoiled by the constant chatter of a very, very annoying tour guide who talked and talked and talked... and all that extremely loud vial 15 big speakers that hang in every corner on every floor of the ship. Not good!
