The Panama Canal is a mind-blowing feat of engineering, with an equally mind-blowing story. You'll learn all about it and get to experience it for yourself, on what is sure to be a favorite for you among all the Panama City boat tours. Aboard the Pacific Queen, you'll enjoy all the comforts of home, and maybe even a little more! With 3 decks, air conditioning, a full bar and lunch menu too, plus a gift shop, you'll have plenty to do and see in between the famous sights of the canal.
Our guide is widely known as one of the most informative and helpful! There are so many events which encompass the building of the canal, and so many more which continue to shape its future. So we're really glad we've got a guide who is as excited to tell you about the canal as you are to learn about it.
Heading northbound from Panama City, the real action begins at Miraflores locks. Up we go almost 18 meters, landing the Pacific Queen in Miraflores Lake. We'll cross the lake to the Pedro Miguel locks, and up another 9 meters and into Gatun Lake we go! At this point we are more than 26 meters above sea level!
Gaillard Cut is another storied part of the Panama Canal, and navigating the cut is the last portion of our tour. It's also called Culebra Cut because it looks like a snake and is one of the most challenging leg of the journey.
Thanks to the Centennial Bridge, Panama canal sightseeing is even better than ever. Upon exiting the Pedro Miguel locks this gorgeous piece of engineering is on full display for us, gracefully spanning the cut with its delicate, geometric design. The cut is over 13 kilometers to Gamboa... the midway point of the canal and that makes it our final stop!
