Nearly 300 of the roughly 14,000+ ships that pass through its three sets of locks annually are now Panama Canal cruises that cater to tourists from around the globe.
The Panama Canal is approximately 48 miles long. Rather than vacationing on a cruise liner that passes through the Panama Canal in about 9 – 15 hours, many vacationers are opting for our 8-day Caravan Panama cruise package.
After viewing Panama’s lock system work from the solid ground, Caravan guests have the opportunity to see the gates function from the water level on our chartered passenger vessel. While seated on the small Caravan Panama cruise boat, guests often get to experience the steel gates open and close, depending on the schedule of the Canal that day.
