Kayaking on the Panama Canal

Kayaking in the Panama Canal is a unique experience. Not only will you get a feel for the magnitude of the canal, but you’ll also enjoy its natural offerings, which include islands, forests, and wildlife.

During this tour, you’ll take a motorized boat to the best places in the canal for wildlife watching. Your tour guides will provide you with all the necessary equipment – including lifejackets, paddles, and kayaks – and provide you with instruction on the best method for handling the kayak. Both one-person and two-person kayaks are available

Gliding along the water at your own pace, listen for birdcalls and search for animals in the surrounding jungle. Keep your eyes peeled for howler monkeys, toucans, sloths, eagles, and iguanas. It’s a relaxing yet exhilarating experience.

Please note that tour participants should have reasonable arm strength.
