The Panama Canal, a true engineering marvel, awaits you for this partial tour as we adventure through the Pacific locks of the Panama Canal that will involve approximately 5 to 6 hours. You will navigate, in addition to the entire entrance to the Panama Canal, the locks at Miraflores and Pedro Miguel, living the experience of the raising and lowering of our ship above and below sea level.

Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Tour may be canceled by the Panama Canal Authority, due to weather conditions, for the safety of passengers. In the event of this occurring, you will be offered an alternative or full refund.
  • All passengers must contact us one day before the tour to reconfirm the exact time of check in, as the time may vary. Departure Time: Generally the tour departs in the morning between 6:00am and 10:00am, although it is the Panama Canal Authority who assign the exact departure times for the ships. It is for this reason that we request passengers to email us the day before you tour so that we can confirm the exact time of your tour.
