Lake Gatun is situated in the heart of the Isthmus of Panama. It was constructed between 1910-14 to make the Panama Canal possible.
From the lake’s shore you will board our fast panga style boats for a voyage of discovery.
We will navigate above ancient routes that crossed the isthmus long before the lakes creation.
Hugh Ocean going ships can be seen transiting across this water bridge that links the Caribbean sea to the Pacific Ocean.
We will glide past lush rainforests to a scenic region of the lake and witness first hand the splendor and excitement of the jungle. Exotic birds, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and crocodiles are just a few of the animals that you can view in their native surroundings.
The sights, sounds and scents that make up this tropical paradise will engulf you.
Our ultimate destination will be the Gatun Explorer, the lake’s first custom exploration vessel. This spacious 61′ long double-decked boat has plenty of room for you to relax and enjoy the day.
A delicious native style lunch with refreshments will be served onboard.
Afterwards numerous activities are available at no additional costs.
Explore on your own while kayaking, swimming, and fishing.
Or if you prefer, just relax onboard the Gatun Explorer and sip a cool drink while taking in the beauty of the area. Learn about this remarkable land from our informative narrations, or study on your own in one of our two lounges equipped with TV’s, VCR’s, videos and books.
There is a cash bar and gift shop where you can purchase unique souvenirs.
Come experience why our guests consider a day spent with us, as one of the highlights of their visit to Panama.
