You will find yourself in a boat experience, where wildlife surrounds you. This itself is a powerful experience for watching the canal from its insides and visiting Monkey Island, located in the famous Gatun Lake.
This is a lake adventure of the sounds and sights of the tropical rainforest. We will move to the public pier in the Gatun Lake after transiting in one of the picturesque internal roads used once to communicate the towns and military bases with the canal support buildings.
We will board a small vessel to sail alongside the big ships transiting the Canal after going under a wooden bridge where the transithsmian railroad passes. This itself is a powerful experience of watching the canal from its insides.
We will stop at Monkey Island to watch in close proximity the Tropical rainforest that supports the functioning of the Panama Canal. We slow to a cruising speed as we motor along the forested banks of the lake, also a protected area, and we will look for wildlife such as Capuchin Monkeys, 3-toed sloths, Howler Monkeys, various kinds of Toucans and other bird life. When we approach the Monkey Island the excitement will bring your adrenaline levels up in anticipation to these cute animals that might come to the boat waiting to be fed; this whole experience will be extremely educational.
Finally we will return to the pier and back to bus for a quick drive to the Summit Zoo; home of a mix variety of plants and native animals including our National bird, the Harpy Eagle. Then we will return to your Panama city hotel.
