Canal crossing...


A favorite of many tourists. This tour takes about 6 hours and includes a meal and a drink. During this trip you will enter and exit the Miraflores locks and the Pedro Miguel locks. Practically you will be doing a half crossing of the canal going up to the level of the Gatun lake which is 26 meters above the sea. Here we must remember that most of the canal is an artificial fresh water lake. A lake creted by man by the flooding of a valley using the Chagres river as the main source of water. Since the canal is made up of rain water, river water, all the lands surrounding the canal are national parks. Without rain there would be no Panama canal. The cost of this tour is $150.00 per person...Please take note that it does not includes the transfer to and from the pier which is $15.00 each way.
