See the historic Panama Canal, the City and its surroundings up-close with this exhilarating helicopter tour. Take in the breathtaking scenery as you hover over these natural and man-made marvels.
This Panama Canal Tour from Panama City takes you up above and around one of the world’s most important transport hubs to see the incredible achievements of the early 1900s engineering and technology, in full scale, layered against a beautiful “Lost World” of pristine jungle, islands, and beaches, as you soar like a bird. The canal, built in the early 1900s, is 77 kilometers (48 miles) of incredible engineering set among the beautiful countryside of Panama. Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific changed the face of transportation, and appreciating this magnificent feat from the air will give you the grand perspective necessary to fully understand the gravity of this undertaking. Watch as “locks” fill up and move massive boats through the canal, an undertaking of over six hours. Now, nearly a million ships have passed through the canal.
For viewing the City, the Panama Canal, and all of its majestic natural surroundings, nothing can you get you closer and more intimate with the scenery than a helicopter, which affords optimum visibility and up-close detail. The helicopter is at your disposal during the tour to explore everything you see close-up, as you like!
