The tour takes through the Chagress river and Panama canal. Nice view of passing by ships. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Saw howler monkeys and heard their terrifying roar from close distance. Fed some tiny monkeys which jumped into the boat.
In all tour worth the $$.

This trip takes you on part of the Canal so you get to the see the ships going through up close. The best part is seeing the wildlife the many different species of birds as well as a couple of different breeds of monkey. Yes they are fed by us humans from the boat but they are in their natural habitat for the most part. Good opportunity for photos. We were also lucky enough to see many baby alligators near to one of the monkey islands which was exciting.

The wildlife you see on this boat ride is only on a small man made island hosting a family of well fed and very used to human capuchin monkeys and a single howler monkey that was placed on the island.

Riding near the large cargo ships was impressive, but the rest of the trip felt scripted and fake.

We took our young children on this boat trip, and they loved it (one slept the whole time, and our oldest was impressed by what he saw). We saw monkeys, alligators up close, birds galore and the sounds of birds & insects was lovely. It was totally worth it.

Very enjoyable boat ride...with the boat pilots taking us very close to shore to witness the flora, fauna and various wildlife. Our driver had the capuchin monkeys eating grapes out of his hand...right in our boat. Fun stuff.
