Tour onboard boats that comply with the stringent Panama Canal full transit Commission safety requirements, both in their operating systems as well as in their passenger safety equipment.
This tour operates every Saturday, except for the day when it operates as a full transit. You’ll go through the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel locks, where you will be able to experience firsthand the handling and operations of the canal itself.
On a Full Transit, our vessel goes up to Miraflores Locks, the first of the Panama Canal’s three sets of locks. After transiting the Miraflores Locks, cruises through the famous Gailliard Cut, a nine-mile excavation through Panama’s backbone and into Gatun Lake.
The Culebra Cut, formerly called the Gaillard Cut, is defined as the largest stretch of the entire Panama Canal; in turn, it was the most important component of the entire work. It makes the connection of Gatun Lake with the Pacific coast, it can be referred to as the section that connected the two oceans.
