Panama Canal Transit Tour
A man, a plan, a canal – Panama!
Some said the Panama Canal couldn’t be done, but in 1870, scientists, engineers, explorers and, of course, politicians set out to prove it could. They plunged into the single largest and costliest engineering effort since the Egyptians constructed the pyramids.
So began the Panama Canal, an amazing human drama that propelled some people and nations into the spotlight and ruined the reputations of others.
Completed over a hundred years ago in 1914, today the Panama Canal provides easy transit between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean by a locks system that ascends ships to a lake and then descends them to the other ocean at about 50 miles on the opposite side.
Join us on board a specially designed vessel offering travelers the unique opportunity to experience what it’s like to go through the locks of the Panama Canal!
- Transit through the Panama Canal locks!
- Amazing views of the Panama City skyline, Bridge of the Americas, Centenial Bridge, and Culebra Cut.
