PANAMA CANAL PARTIAL TRANSIT TOUR

 

Early in the morning an EcoCircuitos driver will meet you and transfer you to Causeway to begin your Partial Transit of the Panama Canal. Admire the Bay of Panama and Panama City´s splendorous skyline and the Bridge of the Americas during the Panama Canal Partial Transit. You will transit the Miraflores Locks where the vessel will ascend 54 feet in two distinct steps. Then enter Miraflores Lake, which is a small artificial body of fresh water that separates Pedro Miguel from Miraflores Locks. Next, the vessel will enter Pedro Miguel Locks, which is one of the two sets of locks on the Pacific side, and here the vessel will be raised the last 27 feet to get into the Gatun Lake. Shortly after you will go under the Centennial Bridge, making your way to the Gatun Lake, which was formed by erecting the Gatun Dam across the Chagres River. After reaching the Gamboa Dredging Division an EcoCircuitos driver will be waiting for you to transfer you back to your hotel or next destination.

 

*Note: this Transit can either go northbound or southbound as it depends on the day and Panama Canal Authority. The above description describes the northbound transit. Also please note that due to the dry season and low water levels in Gatun Lake, which provides water to all the Canal operations, the Panama Canal Authority has implemented strict water conservation guidelines.  These measures restrict transit schedules and may cause changes in Canal Transit departure times. An EcoCircuitos representative will be in contact with you the day before the transit to confirm the pickup transit time.
