Aquabus City Tour

Panama City

Take a tour of Panama City on this amphibious bus. A bilingual guide is on hand to explain the cultural and historical significance of the various places you’ll visit. The departure point for this tour is Albrook Mall. You’ll begin the tour by driving along Cinta Costera, one of Panama City’s most important streets. Cinta Costera borders the Bay of Panama on one side and a sea of skyscrapers on the other. After driving along the street for a few miles, you’ll plunge into the water and enjoy fabulous views of the city.

You’ll eventually pull out of the water and head to Casco Viejo. Casco Viejo dates back to the 17th century and is today one of the most historical neighborhoods of Panama City. Its buildings have French and Spanish architecture and there are scores of old churches scattered throughout the streets.

Following your tour of Casco Viejo, you’ll cruise along the Causeway. The Causeway is a thin strip of road that connects two islands near the entrance of the Panama Canal. It is scattered with nice bars and restaurants and has great views of the city. Prepare for your second splash here—in the water you’ll see the Bridge of the Americas and spot large ships waiting to enter the Panama Canal.

Your third dip into the water will be at the Flamenco Marina near the Causeway. Navigate outside the Marina’s breakwater and enjoy a panoramic view of Panama City.

The final leg of the journey is through the old administrative offices of the Panama Canal. You’ll see the Panama Canal Administration Building, which was inaugurated a month before the canal opened in 1914.

The tour ends back at Albrook Mall.

This tour leaves at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and lasts two hours.
