Full description
Depart for the the world’s most famous manmade lake at 8:30 and spend 6 hours touring the area. Lake Gatun was constructed between 1906 and 1914 to make the Panama Canal possible.

From the lake’s shore you will board fast motorboats for a voyage of discovery. Navigate above ancient routes that crossed the isthmus long before the lake's creation. Huge ocean ships can be seen gliding across this water bridge that links the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. See history in the making with the works to expand the canal.

Glide past lush tropical forests to a scenic region of the lake and see the splendor and excitement of the jungle first-hand. 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.

Your ultimate destination will be the only floating house on the lake. This 2-story structure has plenty of room for you to relax and enjoy the day. A delicious native-style lunch with refreshments will be served. Afterwards numerous activities are available at no additional costs. Explore on your own while kayaking, swimming, and fishing.
