Very interesting educational tour that gives you not only the history of the canal's construction but also the engineering genius that raises and lowers the water with out pumps.

This was a really great trip. You travel through two locks of the Panama Canal. The lunch served was delicious!! Takes about 5+ hours. Be sure to bring sunscreen.

No, the Centennial bridge is a modern highway bridge that many, many cars use daily. It was finished in 2004 and is the second major roadway across the canal. We saw it on a canal tour, so we sailed under it and I do not... More
