Monkey Island, Gatun lake

We will board the boat at the Chagres river and ride to the Gatun lake. A unique opportunity to navigate close to the massive ships that cross the Panama Canal and view up close the dredging of the lake for the expansion of the Canal. Ride through chanels where you will appreciate the natural beauty of widelife. Crocodiles, Iguanas, Turtules, Cappuchin and Howler monkeys are just a few of the wildlife you will encounter.


We will pick you up at your hotel and drive to the Gamboa area dock. We will board the boat and ride through the Gatun lake in search of wildlife. At the end of the boat ride we will take a ride through the Gamboa community. After this we will take you back to your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Truly the best tour guide I've ever had. Outstanding and Mario always went beyond what was expected. Besides his extensive knowledge he went above and beyond on every moment of our tour. The boat tour on the canal was beautiful and Mario arrange for the most wonderful lunch on the water (the best pineapple I've ever eaten). I can't recommend him highly enough. Thanks Mario!
