The Panama Canal is one of the greatest technological accomplishments created by man. Built between 1904 and 1914 at the expense of 5,600 lives (nearly 22,000 died in a previous effort by the French in 1880), the Panama Canal joins the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean along its 48-mile stretch. On this Transcanal cruise, you will explore the magnificent construction of this marvel of modern times complete with its extensive lock system which raises and lowers the water level at different segments of the passage. The Panama Canal has impacted worldwide shipping and trade like no other engineering project in the last 100 years. Prior to the Canal's opening, ships had to sail clear around the tip of South Africa to get from one ocean to the other. On a Transcanal cruise, you will travel through a virgin rainforest alive with tropical wildlife where angling for peacock bass is a popular recreational sport. Lake Gatun, which feeds the Canal's lock system, is itself a vast tropical ecological zone of 180 square miles. Our cruise Transcanal is part adventure, part eco-tourism, and part vacation, depending on what you choose to do on this exciting, exotic cruise.
