Gatun Lake Expedition

Take a boat tour through the Panama Canal into secret waterways to find hidden islands that are the monkeys’ favorites. Capuchin and howler monkeys can be seen jumping on the trees above.  Occasionally, they become curious of the visitors and venture down to take a closer look.  The Monkey Island adventure tour begins on the edge of Gamboa, crossing the Chagres River, up to the Gatun Lake in the Panama Canal, one of the biggest artificial lakes of the world with an area of 425 square kilometers.
