Continents commingle in Central America, with its significant human history and rich biodiversity—we’ll transit the Panama Canal by day, hike to traditional villages in San Blas, snorkel over colorful reefs, and end in recently-opened Cuba.
A highlight of any Panama Canal tour is, of course, a daylight transit of the Canal itself. Your Zegrahm Expeditions Panama Canal cruise is no exception, providing expert insights from a native guide as we glide through this man-made wonder. Yet, our Panama Canal tours delve deeper into this fascinating Central American country, to Escudo de Veraguas, for example, often compared to the Seychelles, where we’ll cruise by Zodiac through mangrove forests to remote beaches where we may glimpse a pygmy sloth or Escudo hummingbird. In the Darien province, our Panama Canal tour finds us eschewing our sturdy ship for a flotilla of locally-made boats for a ride up the winding Mogue River. Explore the San Blas Archipelago—360 gem-like islands boasting everything from vibrant markets to incredible snorkeling and sea kayaking.
