From a deck just feet above the Panama Canal, watch vessels pass through the mighty Miraflores Locks. This exclusive vantage point is yours when you add our pre-cruise extension. Witness at close range how the locks move to lift and lower ships as you capture photos of this engineering marvel—the hinge between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans—in action. Take an expertly guided private tour of the Panama Canal Museum, a four-floor set of interactive exhibits showcasing the canal’s history, operations, expansion and ecology. And visit the recently completed Agua Clara Locks Visitor Center at the canal's new third lock, which facilitates the passage of larger ships. Round out your visit with a tour of a former U.S. Army Base; the Biomuseo (Museum of Biodiversity) designed by world-renowned American architect Frank Gehry; historic Casco Viejo Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the lush natural beauty and wildlife of the San Lorenzo Protected Area.
