Small boat, about 2 dozen guests. When animals are spotted, captain does a great job moving the boat so all get a chance to view and take pictures. Not a long ride - maybe 1.5 hours - but that is plenty.

No need for a half or full day tour. You see everything you need to see in the hour and a half tour bring bug spray

We went to Panama for our honeymoon. This was one of the excursions we did. The boat ride takes you on part of the canal. We saw a lot of monkeys and one even jumped on our boat. The only thing that was a little scary was our boat died while we were on the water but they were able to get it running again within a minute or two.

We went to Gamboa to visit the Embera Village and the conservation center. The rooms were large and each had a hammock on the balcony. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was also very large. The swimming pool is huge and felt wonderful. Unfortunately the swim up bar was not open even though there were lots of people around the pool. The staff was very friendly though.

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 $$.
