Pacific Queen / Panama Canal Tour
Pacific Queen / Panama Canal Tour – See & crossing the Panama Canal is perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in the country. A tour of the Canal is the best way to learn about its history and how this marvel of engineering functions.
On your ride on the Pacific Queen vessel, you will have the opportunity to see the Canal operations from up close, allowing you to enjoy all the action to the max. You can watch the work of the tug boats and feel the sensation of rising and lowering inside the different levels of locks as you cross from sea to sea.
Crossing the Panama Canal yourself and simply being told about it are two totally different things; you have to go yourself and experience the trip. To feel the breeze of the bay on your face and to sniff the fresh scent of nature are priceless. On your trip, you will pass through the narrowest point in the Panama Canal, the famous Snake Cut, also known as the Gaillard Cut. It spans only 152m, a width that is approximately the length of one and a half soccer fields.
