The Miraflores locks measures to an approximate 80 kilometers long between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean.

The locks function as water lifts: they raise ships from sea level (the Pacific or the Atlantic) to the level of Gatun Lake (26 meters above seat level); ships then sail the channel through to the Continental Divide. While experiencing this magnificent architectural masterpiece, also get a breathtaking view of the many ships transiting through the 8th wonder of the world. Then, the trip will continue onwards to within the city. Experience the modern and financial district along with the beauty of the colonial city of Panama.

Afterwards, be transferred back to the hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
