Experience the Panama Canal. Since opening in 2003, Canal & Bay Tours, has been one of the most prestigious tour operators in Panama offering partial or complete tours through the Panama Canal and tours of the Bay of Panama. The transits leave from the dock at La Playita de Amador. It is an awe-inspring experience to watch the enormous gates of the Miraflores locks opening in front of the boat to give it access. The partial tour through the interoceanic way lasts approximately 4 hours, and allows visitors to see the Miraflores Locks, the Pedro Miguel locks, the Culebra Cut and Gamboa at a price of $150 per person and $85 for children from 2 to 12 years.
If you are looking to live the complete experience of transiting the Canal, the full transit takes you from ocean to ocean, passing through the three locks and all the way to the port in Colon. This tour takes place every first Saturday of each month, at a cost of $195 per person and $95 for children.
These tours include a continental breakfast or snack, lunch, unlimited non-alcoholic drinks, bilingual guides and transportation between the docks. Canal & Bay Tours also offers tours around the Panama Bay and partial night transits.
