Panama City, Panama
Tour begins by picking up guests at Panama City around 7:00 a.m. You will arrive at Gatun Dam, one hour and 30 minutes later to start kayaking around 8:30am.
To get in and out of this area, by road, you will go across the Panama Canal by ferry in your vehicle. The Gatun Locks used to be crossed by a vehicular bridge, but with consideration of the third set of locks this is no longer possible.
You will start an exciting 3-4 hour paddling expedition through the dense tropical forest all the way to the Caribbean Ocean where Spaniard conquistadors built Fort San Lorenzo. Since the XVI century it has silently kept away the Caribbean pirates that used this waterway to take by surprise assault Panama City in the Pacific.
After visiting Fort San Lorenzo, you will head back toward Panama City and reach the original departure point about 4pm.
You will be able to see the jungle awakening and it is very likely that you might still encounter some morning mist over it. And you will go back in time to imagine episodes of the Spaniard American Conquest.
