Spent actually viewing monkeys, herons, ducks,crocodiles and other wild life. Lifejackets supplied, covered boat, Knowledgable and fair english speaking guides. They get a bit grumpy at the end though if you don't offer a tip. ( this seems to be a quite prevalent behavior in the panama i experienced. ) Really unattractive.

We went on the Aventuras 2000 Eco canal tour but I think most tours will be similar . Organisation was ok but the guide did not speak great English and also did not have much in depth knowledge of wildlife . The lake itself and rainforest inlets were interesting we saw a couple of capuchins who seemed to be trained... More

If you only have one tour to do in Panama canal area, this is the one you want to do. It starts on a motor boat cruise the more commercial path of the canal where you navigate along the commercial ships transiting and explore the jungle side where you get to feed the monkeys. Then they bring you to the... More

A great day on the water with wildlife. As much fun as it is to be on the canal next to the cargo ships and realize just how big they are, the real fun starts when you get off th main path. When you start into the little inlets, you begin to see just how beautiful the land really is.... More

we took two young kids with us to see the monkeys and wild life, which they did...but lunch wasn't until 1:30 when we made sandwiches and had a muffin and pop...a long time as we did a two hour bus ride, a boat ride, a walk in the jungle...so take food!

I had gone to Panama to stay at the Gamboa Resort which, by the way, is a beautiful resort in the middle of the rain forest. The boat trip was a little exciting but the best part was the white face monkey that we saw and I was able to capture them in beautiful pics. They are not afraid of... More

Tour was on 6 April 2014. I had my doubts about this trip because of the comments of the Captain’s jokes and how he treats the staff. But this was a nice trip. His jokes were kind of corny instead, but my brother did tell me he did talk down to the local staff a couple of times which I... More
