Panama Canal Partial Transit with Lunch
Start your Panama Canal adventure in the Flamenco Marina (or La Playita marina, across the street, depending on boat schedule), located on the famous Amador Causeway. After boarding the Pacific Queen (or Tuira II), you will set sail towards the Panama Canal, traversing the Bay of Panama with the glitzy skyline as its backdrop. Once you pass under the gigantic Bridge of Americas it is time to say good bye to the Pacific Ocean, as you enter the Panama Canal with the first set of locks awaiting in the distance.
Entering the Miraflores Locks is a breathtaking experience, with its gigantic walls looming high above. Once the heavy lock doors close behind you, water is pumped into the basin, raising the boat 18 meters above sea level. After the lock doors open the Pacific Queen will enter the Miraflores Lake, a small artificially created body of fresh water separating the Miraflores Locks and Pedro Miguel Locks.
After entering the Pedro Miguel Locks, you the boat will be raised 9 meters higher, entering the Gailard Cut (often referred to as Culebra Cut, due to its snake like shape), where the Charges River flows into the Canal. Having been carved through the Continental Divide, the Gailard Cut will intrigue visitors with its rich history and geological significance. Enjoy the lush surroundings of the Panama Canal as the Pacific Queen makes its way along the 13.7 kilometer Gailard Cut to the Gamboa Dredging Division.
You will disembark at the Gamboa Dredging Division where your transportation is waiting to take you back to the Amador Causeway in Panama City
