Eco Cruise on Gatun Lake and Gatun Locks
This SeaDream Land Adventure is designed for guests that are in transit or those who have late flights. Kindly note the adventure starts and finishes at the Cruise Terminal. This SeaDream Land Adventure combines the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal with an ecological boat ride on the Gatun Lake. Upon departing from the pier, your specialized guide will focus on three elements: Culture, History and Ecology. These guides are considered experts in their fields and have been specifically chosen for your land adventure. Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, the vast jungle area that is now the Gatun Lake was teeming with an overwhelming abundance of wildlife. As the region was flooded to create the lake, animals took refuge in the mountain peaks, which are now the many islands that dot the renowned lake. You and your interpretive guide will slowly cruise the back channels, island and bays that make up this unique ecosystem. Glide past lush rainforests to a secluded region of the lake and witness first-hand the splendor and excitement of the jungle. Exotic birds, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and crocodiles are just a few of the animals that you could see in their native surroundings. The sights, sounds and scents that make up this beautiful, tropical jungle will engulf you. Cameras are a must as this is considered the world’s premier location for viewing monkeys and other animals in the wild. Before or after your cruise on Gatun Lake, you will have the opportunity to visit the Gatun Locks, largest and most important of the 3 sets of locks at the Panama Canal.
