"Gatun Lake - The Panama Canal is much more than a marvel built to transit vessels from one ocean to another. With it, a vast zone of tropical forest has been devoted to protect its main resource: fresh water. We take you to explore this wonder in expedition kayaks to allow you a close encounter with the surroundings of the Canal Every time a ship crosses the canal towards the Pacific Ocean at Miraflores Locks or towards the Atlantic Ocean at the Gatun Locks 52,000,000 gallons of fresh water are spilled from Gatun Lake. It used to be the world biggest artificial lake. With the creation of Gatun Lake many mountain tops were turned into islands. It offers endless channel possibilities to scout wildlife. In its shores covered by dense tropical forest you will find all kinds of tropical flora and fauna."
 
Day 3: Panama Canal Gatun Lake Kayaking & Miraflores Locks
After enjoying breakfast, you'll get picked up at 8:00 am and driven along the Panama Canal, passing by Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Locks, to the Gamboa Public Ramp. The journey continues through the Canal for another hour by motorboat, and then you will switch to 2-person expedition kayaks once we are at the Lake.
We spend the next few hours scouting channels through the forest, with a break for lunch and to rest on our motor boat. While wildlife is never completely predictable, we are almost guaranteed to see different types of monkeys, including Capuchin (white-faces), howling, spider, and titi. Animals that also can be spotted are Jesus Lizards, king fishers and fishing eagles and if we're lucky we may also see turtles.
On the way back we'll stop at the Panama Canal Miraflores Locks and learn about its operation. The Canal is still vital to world trade, without it there wouldn´t be world’s commerce as we know it.
