Ancon Expeditions of Panama

Want to experience authentic Panama? Book a tour with Ancon Expeditions. The tour operator offers one- or multi-day adventures.

We highly recommend the Panama Canal Rainforest Boat Adventure — it is among the company’s most popular tours and is especially ideal for families. The five-hour boat expedition takes you across Gatun Lake to get up close with local wildlife, including monkeys, crocodiles and exotic birds. Gatun Lake gives way to the Panama Canal, which means you’ll also get up close with ships passing through the famous waterway! A lovely picnic lunch is included in this tour.

Other immersive tours include The Chagres River and the Embera People, in which you get to meet and learn about Panama’s indigenous people, and Whale & Dolphin Watching Las Perlas, hosted between July and September.

Want to experience the Panama Canal? Ancon Expeditions offers Partial and Ocean to Ocean Canal Transits on a 250-passenger ferry; they are available several times a week and are a great alternative to a lengthy cruise ship journey.
