Your Itinerary

We will admire the fauna and vegetation of the tropical forest, as well as the Monkey Island where you could admire the White-Faced Capuchin Monkeys, Geoffrey’s Tamarin Monkeys and the Mantled Howler Monkeys in their natural habitat.

This is for those looking to witness spectacular scenery of the tropical jungles in the Panama Canal watershed. Just a short trip outside the city, the Gatun Lake & Monkey Islands Expedition has a mix of history, wildlife, nature, and the unique experience to travel by boat through the Panama Canal next to freight ships.

This tour is done from the comfort of a motorboat, with a small group. The tour will be guided by a certified guide, with an average of 4-5 people on the tour.

Your guide can take you as close as possible to the monkeys and other animals, but always taking into account to not disturb them in their natural habitat or disrupt their natural feeding patterns.
