Ocean to Ocean Panama Canal and Jungle Tour vs. Panama Canal Half Transit Tour
NOTE: There are only two companies that offer transit tours and we cannot offer transits. During the Ocean to Ocean Panama Canal and Jungle Tour, while we will not be transiting the locks, we will ride in a boat right down the middle of the canal where large ships will be passing through.
Our canal trip will stretch about 6 miles before we pull off of the shipping channel and explore some islands in Gatun Lake that are full of wildlife! If you’re only looking to do just a transit, you should consider the half day transit. The locks transits are a unique experience but they are generally overpriced and very crowded. Our tour is a much more thorough and enjoyable way to experience the canal, but you can compare the two and make your own conclusion. If you would still like to book a transit tour you can visit Canal and Bay Tours or Panama Marine Adventures
