Panama Expeditions

Panama is home to more species of birds and trees than the whole of North America and is of course, famous for the Panama Canal that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. This engineering marvel now allows ships to cross from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic in approximately 10 hours, a journey that once took almost two weeks to complete, when vessels were forced to sail around the notoriously rough seas around Cape Horn at the tip of South America.

Crossing the Panama Canal is a bucket-list item for many avid travellers. Over a million people visit the canal every year to witness the locks at work. Be one of a few to traverse the iconic Panama Canal on a guaranteed daylight crossing from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea.

We are pleased to announce that adventurous and well-known explorer, Greg Mortimer, will be our special guest aboard Costa Rica & Panama Canal (CRP001G).
