EXPANDED AGUA CLARA LOCKS, GATUN DAM & SAN LORENZO FORT
Explore Colon with a visit to the Agua Clara Locks along the Panama Canal. Drive through the rainforest to San Lorenzo Fort and marvel at the 400-year old ruins on a private trip.
This tour is designed for travelers that need to return earlier to the dock without having to be stressed about getting back late.
We can pick you up from Colon Home Port around 8:30 am - the meeting point is Subway Restaurant near Super 99 Supermarket. It is 400 meters away from the Gangway - please see the MAP
We will start by visiting the amazing expanded Panama Canal Locks named Agua Clara. The center offers a breathtaking panoramic view that contrasts two particular scenarios that generate mixed feelings.
We will drive along the coast and go over the largest bridge built in Panama, which has a stunning view of the mouth of the Caribbean Sea.
Our next stop is Gatun Lake, which consists of three steps, or pairs of chambers. The transit inside these locks is different from the Agua Clara.
Time to pass by the former Sherman US Fort, which complemented the defensive armament of Fort Randolph across Limon Bay. Stationed at Fort Sherman were two harbor defense battalions and one anti-aircraft gun battalion.
We drive along the rainforest to finally reach the San Lorenzo fort. The 400-year-old Spanish ruins of San Lorenzo are a Unesco World Heritage Site. Sometimes we spot wild animals along the way up.
We will bring you back to the port in Colon around 3:00 p.m.
