Monkey Island Tour from Panama City

172 reviews
Monkey Island lies on Gatun Lake, along the Panama Canal, and is renowned for its large population of monkeys, along with other wildlife. On this tour, set sail on a scenic riverboat cruise around the lake and the Chagres River; look out for wildlife such as slothes, iguanas, and crocodiles; and spot four different types of monkey on the island—mantled howler, white-faced capuchin, Geoffroy’s tamarin, and lemurine owl monkeys.

Horrible customer service. When I explained that my daughters flight was canceled and she would not make the ferry we were told too bad. She could use the round trip ticket for one year. $100 poof gone. When I suggested that the 25-30 or so people checking in that perhaps there was one person who was paying cash could buy my ticket I was told to sit down. As a consolation they put me at a window seat ! Ha. Not in “ first class” the comfy seats in front. But a window directly under neath a tv that for 2 hours blasted music videos! When I got up from my seat to attempt to get away from the noise of the music , dogs barking in crates. Kids screaming and crying I tried to access the outside on the top deck. I was quickly tapped on the shoulder by a huge doorman to point me back to coach. Evidently only those first class passengers got to see the outside. Awful experience. Fly over if you must. But the island wasn’t exactly a tourist spot worthy of seeing / visiting.

Where to start ? Nearly $100 for a return trip/... waiting for ever to get on the boat with our bags. Then you have to run to get seats (our boat was 100% full) so some people had to sit outside. The first boat was rather comfortable with blue seats and good AC. the sea was calm. Know that the island doesn't have a pier a small dirty boats take you to the beach so make sure not we wear shoes or pants as you will get wet. On the way back we had to wait in line for the police to check our bags (who knows why) then again on a small fishing boat. This time the trip was a nightmare. The waves were not very high but the boat was moving all over the place. Many people were sick, kids screaming. This made the crew laugh so much... then they put on loud music and started dancing. 2 hours of the most uncomfortable boat ride ever. I do not recommend taking this ferry except if you really like to rough it.

The ferry leaves from the former Trump Hotel. Go through the lobby and straight to check in. We recommend paying for executive class upgrade. We enjoyed our trip both ways. The crew were very involved and informative. Getting of the ferry and back on the ferry at Contadora is very fun and interesting. We would recommend anyone take this ferry!

The ferry service is very poor. They over packed the little ferry. No space to seat, we were left to seat on top of cooling containers. The ride was super bumpy. We had things faling from the roof into our heads. Dont recommend this service at all.
