The Caribbean & a Taste of the Panama Canal

This western Caribbean island hopping cruise gives you a taste of a passage through the Panama Canal and the opportunity to  experience one of the great American engineering feats of the 20th century. Unlike full Panama Canal cruises these ones have a healthy dose of Caribbean sunshine and beaches - roundtrip from Florida.

The Panama Canal provides a vital shipping route between  the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. There are three sets of huge locks and they incoporate two independant lanes for two way traffic. The set that carries the ship between the Atlantic and the Gatun Lake comprises of three stepped tiers.The journey from the Gatun Lake to the Pacific Ocean is split into two separate sets of locks. The Miraflores locks has two stepped tiers and the final set which reaches the Pacific Ocean  is a single stepped tier known as the Pedro Miguel lock.

On these itineraries you will travel  as far as the Gatun Lake before returning to the Caribbean. Dense rainforests, incredible wildlife and amazing history are all on offer on what is a trip of a lifetime. In Colombia visit the centre of Cartagena which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, take an excursion through the Jungle in Panama and paddle down the Reventazon River in Costa Rica. With bonus stop offs in the Caribbean visiting Jamaica & the Cayman Islands, this itinerary has it all.
