My 12 year old daughter and I went to the Lodge in July, 2014. After being picked up at 9 at our hotel in Panama City (so convenient and easy), we picked up two other families and drove by the Canal on our way to the dock. Captain Carl met us there. He is fun, knowledgeable and a great grill... More

What a great day we had on the Jungle Boat Tour with Captain Carl. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the dock where Carl met us on the Jungle boat. Carl is a great guide; very knowledgable, warm and funny. Carl talked about the different machinery used to build and expand the canal, that you will... More

This was a fun day out for our family of 2 adults and a 10 year old (who loved the opportunity to jump from the 2nd floor of the boat into the water). Food and service were OK (nothing special). Kayaking was an adventure - glad we were dressed appropriately. Although we enjoyed seeing the wildlife, we were uncomfortable with... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip; it was a beautiful full day tour with plenty of information on the canal as well as the people and animals of Panama. After an hour plus tour through the waterways, interacting with and feeding capuchins, we arrived at the house boat for a fabulous local lunch. We then kayaked through... More

Our tour with Captain Carl was the best day of our trips. We saw a lot of monkey, had the opportunity to feed them, there were also crocrodiles and snake. We had no time to get bored as Carl was always talking or taking us to a new activity except when eating (for sure). The food was also very good... More

This was a laidback experience of relaxation on the lake.Many species of wildlife were seen which included monkeys, lizards, birds, turtles and crocodiles. Captain Carl was well versed in the habits of the wildlife and knew where to find them. His knowledge of the habits resulted in some great photo ops. The tour was completed with a great meal of...

Had a great time with Captain Carl and his tour around Panama Canal and Gatun Lake. He is very knowledgelable!!! Now, this tour is for people that are willing to live a jungle experience. Meaning you will get wet, shows soaked wet (unless you carry flip flops with you), get feet muddy and body sweaty. A little exercise during kayaking... More

I can't say enough great things about this tour. It was super easy to arrange transportation to and from our hotel in Panama City, the driver showed up EARLY and was extremely pleasant, giving us tons of information about Panama, the canal, and answering any and all questions we had. Captain Carl was a fantastic guide - funny and extremely... More
