Living in Panama, sometimes we do not take full advantage the the amazing outdoors, here is almost everything you want to do in the tropics, this time was taking advantage of the Gatun Lake, not many countries you can paddle at the same time a big Panamax Ship is passing in front of you while crossing the Panama Canal. But also the amazing biodiversity that can be closely seen while you are enjoying a great adventure. It is just amazing...
Regarding the tour, I only have great things to say, wonderful people, very responsible and always aware of their guests, Chris you rule... What a better way to spend a Saturday.
I can only summarize this day in one word AWESOME

On our last day in Panama we decided to go on a day kayak trip down the River. We were picked up at hotel and drove up to Gatun Locks were we put in the kayaks just past Gatun Dam.
We had 2 guides- a local guide who knew the river and an English speaking guide Chris both were very informative.
We paddled about 9km down the river to the opening of the Caribbean Sea.
After a tour and light lunch at San Lorenzo Fort we returned to Panama city making it a full day excursion.
If you are looking for a unique experience in Panama I highly recommend it

We just returned from a trip to Panama and on our last day we went with Adventuras Panama on a kayak trip down the Chagres River to the Caribbean Sea.
It was amazing seeing the different birds, monkeys, and fish jumping as we paddled down the river.This was an easy paddle till we got closer to the opening of the sea but most people should be able to handle it. We put in buy the Gatun Dam and total paddle was about 9 km.
Our guide Chris was very helpful and informative and after a light lunch at the San Lorenzo Fort we headed back to Panama City.
If you want something unique to do while in Panama I would highly recommend it.

I like this trip very much due to the many components on it that makes it unique. We go accross the only Panama Canal Locks that allows it because they are designed to become a bridge when close, Gatun Locks. We get to see Gatun Dam which makes possible the Panama Canal main body of water that ships use to go across the isthmus, Gatun Lake. We paddle expedition kayaks in Chagres River, from Gatun Dam all the way to the Caribbean Ocean through virgin jungle. And then, at the end, we visit Forth San Lorenzo built by Spaniard Conquistadores to seal Chagres River mouth from pirates upstream incursions.

So much, packaged in a day trip.

We had a blast doing the rafting trip in Rio Mamoni, we had all-in-one excitement experience with the great team from Aventura's Panama who made the experience above are expectations. It was summer season at the time we took the trip, I would strongly recommend if interest in doing rafting to be towards winter season to have a really adrenaline rush! Overall, very content!

Mamoni river water level is so dry now that we are only paddling in duckies (inflatable kayaks) until we get some rain again. Still a lot of fun if you are aware on what to expect
