Panama Canal Transits / Tránsito por El Canal de Panamá
Panama Canal Transits
Through the Canal, onboard boats that comply with the most stringent Panama Canal Commission safety requirements, both in their operating systems as well as in their passenger safety equipment.
This tour operates every Saturday, except for the day when it operates as a full transit. Depart from Pier 18 in Balboa or Flamenco in Amador, go through the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel locks, were you will be able to experience first hand the handling and operations of the canal itself.
On a Full Transit our vessel goes up to Miraflores Locks, the first of the Panama Canal’s three sets of locks. After transiting the Miraflores Locks, cruises through the famous Gailliard Cut, a nine-mile excavation through Panama’s back bone and into Gatun Lake.
