Cruises through the Panama Canal are an unforgettable experience comprising the natural wonders of the rainforest beside the engineering marvel that connects two of the world’s great oceans. The canal is less than 50 miles long and takes approximately 10 hours to traverse.
The Panama Canal locks are one of the world’s greatest feats of engineering. There are three sets: two-steps at Miraflores, and a single flight at Pedro Miguel lifting ships an incredible 86 feet from the Pacific to Gatun Lake, where a triple set lowers ships to the Atlantic. Each lock is paired allowing ships to pass in opposite directions simultaneously.
The route features incredible sites with a huge range of animals and tropical birds residing in the lush rainforest.
Travellers can experience the Panama Canal as part of a wider with departures from either the Atlantic or the Pacific or nature lovers might choose to embark on a short specialist cruise that explores the surrounding wildlife in depth.
