We had a wonderful day on Lake Gatun yesterday and saw lots of wildlife. Sloths, iguanas, birds, several types of monkeys and tamarin. Sebastian our guide couldn’t have been better. We also saw ships going through the Panama Canal. We had lunch on a houseboat in the river and then kayaked to a waterfall and swim. Our pick up from the hotel was prompt with a good driver who spoke good English and explained some historical facts to me.

Booked this trip for the kayaking as most require either 2 or 4 participants. I was picked up promptly and dropped off with a group at Gamboa, where we boarded covered boats for ride to Lake Gatun. Enroute down the Chagres River to where it meets the Panama Canal, we were right along side of several HUGE barges, luxury liners, cruise ships etc. for the ride to Monkey Island. Spent (wasted?) 1.5 hours at different spots trying to coax monkeys down to the boats for food and photo ops - there were some other boats there doing the same thing so monkeys weren't starving :) Guide tried to point out Isla Barro Colorado, an island on the lake protected by the Smithsonian Institute because of it's unique soil, animal, and vegetation as the only preserved area combining Atlantic and Pacific species - everything else is blocked off by the lock system within the canal. Guide had limited specifics on local animals, birds, ecosystems. Went down a narrow canal to the Floating Lodge. This is a wooden structure floating on the edge of the wilderness. There are primitive bathrooms, kayaks, SUPs, and four floors of sitting areas with hammocks, tables, and porch swings. Generous lunch was served (on a banana leaf and plate) which consisted of chicken, beef, rice, salad, mashed sweet potato, and yucca. Beer is $2. We were paired with kayak partners - or could go solo - for a short paddle down a narrow passage to reach a shore. We left boats and gear for a stony, muddy walk though the creek bed (water shoes would be helpful, not flip flops) to a beautiful, small waterfall. It was easy enough for small children (with life vests on) to climb up the rocks and over to jump off the waterfall into the deep pool below. Beautiful and very refreshing in the cold water! After the short paddle back to the Floating Lodge we had time to swim out to the lily pad floating areas, free-dive off the decks of the lodge, or just chill in the porch swings and hammocks. Boat ride back to Gamboa was quick and we were all delivered at our hotels safely, with smiles, sunburns, and full bellies! There were several "guides" involved with the different stages and aspects of this tour so not sure how the tips are split.

This trip was just enough. The partial transit put us on the water with the rising water levels of the locks, a relatively short period of time moving from one to the other. The boat was of a good size with good views of the happenings. Our guide JC was knowledgeable and friendly as were the rest of the crew. We were served breakfast and lunch while aboard ship. My one complaint is that finding the point of departure was challenging. I had given myself 30 minutes to be lost and just made it to the boat prior to launch. This 5 hour activity is time well spent.

Traveled to Panama for family reunion; and decided to take the partial transit of Panama Canal to accompany relatives who were visiting for the first time. A great time was had by all. Amazing to see how the project to widened the canal has made a difference as larger vessels are now able to transit; facilitating world wide commerce.

I had a very pleasant day on the panama canal and the surrounding jungle. Lots of wildlife and huge boats which is a nice combination. Pierre and his team are very nice and professional. Unfortunately I lost my camera during the trip. Pierre found it and personally delivered it to me in panama city. Very nice! I definitely recommend this company for panama tours.
