Monkey Island Tour from Panama City

171 reviews
Monkey Island lies on Gatun Lake, along the Panama Canal, and is renowned for its large population of monkeys, along with other wildlife. On this tour, set sail on a scenic riverboat cruise around the lake and the Chagres River; look out for wildlife such as slothes, iguanas, and crocodiles; and spot four different types of monkey on the island—mantled howler, white-faced capuchin, Geoffroy’s tamarin, and lemurine owl monkeys.

The history of this man made lake is very interesting. Ships wait their turn to traverse the locks of the canal. The shore shows terraced earth making the cut to create the canal.

It was incredible trying to count all the ships in the lake crossing the Panama Canal. They were lined up everywhere. We were also able to see the dam creating the lake. Frigate birds were abundant and gorgeous to watch. We spent time here watching other vessels enter and work their way through the locks. Seeing the tugs line up the ships was interesting.

Views for the Gamboa Rainforest in to the lake were great. The charter boat rides to the lake were great.

Lake Gatun was full of surprises at every turn of the tour boat we were on. We saw so much wildlife! I spotted a manatee! There were so many birds. We also saw a few lodeges along the shore. It would be a great place to stay.
