I did the jungle land day trip and I have to say I was unimpressed. The man who ran the tour acted and sounded like a carnival barker, annoying to the point of being irritating and disruptive. The monkey sightings were so forced, and felt completely set up. The boat stopped in 3 locations to see monkeys, each location only... More

Well I never have worked for the carnival but I do have years of experience projecting my voice to groups of people. During the boat tour the guides present our guests with information about the canal, flora and fauna. I cant see how this information would be annoying. Along our route we interact with some capuchin monkeys that live in... More

We got lucky and booked this excursion 2 days beforehand as normally you need to book at least a week in advance. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the dock where we met Captain Carl and loaded onto the boat. Carl took us through the Panama Canal and stopped to give us a little info on... More

This was a day full of amazing experiences starting with boat rides through the Panama Canal and information aplenty. From there we visited several islands where captain Carl provided information regarding plants and animals residing there and providing opportunity to feed monkeys that would visit the boat. After an amazing lunch the group broke into activity choices: kayaking, fishing, swimming,... More

Captain Carl has put together a very enjoyable package here. Excellent way to experience the canal, see some monkeys up close and personal, and just enjoy the Panama outdoors. We totally enjoyed the boat ride, the kayaking and the swimming. Seeing "Fluffy" was pretty cool too! Well maintained facility and in a fantastic spot! The tour was long enough without... More

This is a quality tour and tour provider--you see monkeys, hear great info about the canal, get a great lunch and a choice of afternoon activities. So why was it not our cup of tea? Too many people in the group for only one tour guide. There were over 40 of us in two completely full boats and we were... More

We normally do split our larger groups. Unfortunately on this date my other guide was ill and it was a one man show. During the activities briefing I always tell the guests to team up with someone who knows how to steer the kayak and this person needs to set in the back. On this day we had a large... More

I really was expecting just a basic boat ride to the lodge to hang out for the day in Gatun Lake. Boy was I wrong. We got a detailed boat tour explaining the Panama Canal expansions happening right before our eyes. We got to feed monkeys, see all kinds of different wildlife, and explore the jungles of Gatun Lake. When... More

They picked us up at the cruise ship and we met Juan who was our guide. The boat ride from where they picked us up to the lodge was about an hour, thru the lake and so very informative/educational. Then we entered the jungle and he knew exactly where to go to find the monkey's so that we could see... More
