Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Enjoy a leisurely five-hour tour around the Panama Canal in a deluxe 1938 air-conditioned dome car. After boarding your air-conditioned transportation you'll make the short drive to the Pacific railroad station. Here, you'll board your unique dome car that features an upper deck with full-length observation windows and booth seating. Then, you'll leave the station for an approximately one hour train trip from the Pacific terminus of the Panama Canal, passing Gatun Lake and the isthmus' dense rainforest. During your railroad journey, you guide will provide commentary on the railroad, Panamanian history, and the canal. When your train arrives at Colon's station, you'll transfer to the New Locks Observation Center to view the operation of the locks and watch vessels enter the locks. At the end of this fascinating adventure, you'll return to the pier.

Special Notes:

There are no preassigned seats and capacity is limited. The train operates in one direction. During the 1.5 hour return trip restroom facilities will not be available. Tour sequence may vary. Ship sightings are not guaranteed. The Observation Car has a glass dome viewing area as pictured.
