many people the word Panama is synonymous with the Panama Canal. Built in
the early 20th Century, the Panama Canal is one of the
largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken and has an
enormous impact on shipping and commerce worldwide. Today over 300 million tons of cargo
transits the canal annually, moving through the three sets of locks for the approximately
50 mile journey across the isthmus. Ever dreamed of transiting the canal and
following the same route of those massive cargo carriers?Our Panama Canal Transit Tour aboard a ship designed precisely for
this adventure is the way to go.
you begin your adventure at the mouth of the Panama Canal on the Pacific and
transit northbound or board the vessel at the epicenter of Gamboa, the
dredging division, and head southbound, your transit will take you through
the three lock steps required to raise or lower ships from sea level to the
level of Gatun Lake (85 feet above sea level). Your transit also moves through the
infamous Gaillard Cut (Culebra Cut), the only gap in the continental divide,
and passes under the Bridge of Americas and the Centennial Bridge.
Accompanied by expert live narrative and full buffet breakfast or lunch,
this is an experience not to be missed.
