Gatun Lake Panama Canal

When you enter the Panama Canal from the Caribbean, through the Gatun Locks, your first stop will be in Gatun Lake, where all your Panama Canal Shore excursions will depart from.

You’ve gone through the locks, now it’s time to see this country by land! Or, you can choose a smaller boat transit, which allows you to cruise up some of the smaller riverlets to many of the coves and inlets that your cruise ship cannot access because of its size.
