We are a young couple from Europe ( Italy / Germany) and we did a day tour with Captain Carl Davis from Gamboa. This included a boat tour through the canal and the lake gatun seeing from close many iguanas, croccodiles, monkeys and sloths as well as a great kayak tout through thick vegetation to a refreshing waterfall. We had... More

My wife Kristy and I had such a great time with Captain Carl and his crew. From kyaking through the rain forrest to swimming, fishing, food, monkeys...so much. Just waking up to the sounds of the rain forrest in the morning is worth it. Thanks again Captain Shawn and Kristy

A family traveling with kids ages 9 & 10. The boat ride provides exposure to the canal. One you arrive at the lodge you will kayak, jump from a waterfall, see monkeys, cayman, crocs and many birds. SPEND THE NIGHT. Once the large group leaves you can spend time with Carl and the crew. They all have interesting tales to... More

We were there on a day trip about two years ago and knew at that time that we had to go back when we found out that we could spend the night. We spent two nights on the houseboat on Feb 9 & 10 as the culmination to our Costa Rica/Panama holiday. I would recommend this trip to anyone. We... More

This was the highlight of our 3 week trip in Costa Rica, Panama, and Honduras. The cruise on the canal to the lodge was great! Cruised right by several large ships that had just gone through the locks. Our room was large, had a comfy bed, and great private deck overlooking a small island. Saw a turtle swim by right... More

I started planning this day trip for 8 people and before I knew it, there were 24 of us! Every single person absolutely loved the experience and said it was the best part of our vacation! Captain Carl is a funny guy. We fed monkeys right out of our hands! So amazing! After cruising, we had a relaxing lunch ($1... More

This may seem very expensive but when you count in great meals, all the activities you can handle, the fabulous location and a great knowledgeable host and his team, it is well worth it. And all you can drink! If you have any special requests, just make them known well beforehand and they will do their best. You can kayak... More

The location is great and don't expect anything from capt Carl, His contribution to the activity was only 20%. Jumping into canal was awesome, Food was okay. Kayaking was great, Very few monkeys may just 1 or two

Saw the larger part of the canal. Not the locks. Then went into jungle areas. Saw monkeys. Kids loved it. Kayaked. Swam. Food not great but decent and they accommodated my daughters gluten free diet. Try to go in Carl's boat. He is entertaining.

We were a group of 32 that had real high expectations from this place/people. We read most of the reviews on tripadvisor - for a month and were very eager to meet Capt Carl - before we eventually landed there and found things a bit different. We all built up this image of Capt Carl as a real nice, funny,... More

This all took place during the crazy holiday season. Sometimes in the rush of things I might be a bit distracted. It was not my intention not to give a proper greeting to everyone. During the meals we normally serve smaller portions to small children. It is my experience that they are like humming birds. They eat a couple bites... More
