Jungle Canal Day Tour

This tour covers some of the most interesting parts of the Panama Canal. Lake Gatún makes up a 21-mile (33-m) section of the canal. This area used to be a lush valley – it was flooded to make a manmade lake between 1906 and 1914.

Jungle Canal Day Tour

Panama City

On your tour you’ll see huge ships that are on their way to the Atlantic. For your sightseeing cruise across the lake you’ll climb on a speedy motorboat. During your trip you’ll pass by islands that are inhabited with diverse rainforest wildlife. You may see monkeys and birds in the trees, and you’ll make a stop at Monkey Island to see some of its friendly primate inhabitants.

Eventually you will arrive at a floating lodge, right on the edge of the lake. Your group will disembark and head inside for a freshly prepared Panamanian lunch. While you’re at the lodge you’ll have a good view of the lake.

After lunch you can take your pick of lake activities. You can go hiking through the jungle, or stay on the lake and choose from swimming, kayaking, or fishing. There is so much fish in this lake that there are no limits for certain species. Visitors also have the option to unwind in a hammock near the shore – feel free to visit the lodge’s cash bar for a cocktail.
