Detailed Description

This is a complete ocean-to-ocean tour of the Panama Canal. Includes bus pick-up to a select list of hotels (see the list below), or you can go directly to the pier (Playita de Amador) to complete check-in and board the ship.

Check-in is usually done between 6:30am and 7:30am, and hotel pick-up is usually done one hour before the one mentioned above. Pick-up and check-in times are confirmed the day before the day of the tour. This is because the Panama Canal Authority does not publish the exact time until the day before the tour. You will receive an email from Tiqy before 6:00pm the day before the tour confirming the check-in and pick-up times.

You have up to 48 hours before the day of the tour to provide us with the name of the hotel where you wish to be picked up and returned (must be on the list of selected hotels). If we receive this information after this time, we will not be able to organize your transport and you will have to go by your own to the pier of the Playita de Amador, where you must register for the tour.

After you have registered, you will board the ship to begin the journey through the Panama Canal. Along the way you will see the incredible views of Panama City, the Bridge of the Americas and the Centennial Bridge. There will be a guide on board throughout the tour, which will explain the entire history of the Canal and the interesting facts about its construction and will be available for any questions you may have about the tour.

Once the boat has sailed, a light breakfast will be served, usually is sandwiches, fruit, coffee, water and muffins.

The ship will navigate the Panama Canal and its locks, you will see how the locks open and close and how the water rises and falls. Normally the transit is done next to a much larger ship. The size of these boats is impressive. You will have many opportunities to take photos while crossing the locks.

Lunch will also be served on the boat. Lunch is usually chicken, salad, vegetables, a piece of cake and rice or pasta. Unlimited waters and sodas are available on the boat. There are alcoholic beverages available for purchase.

The total boat trip is usually about 8 hours.

After the tour, there will be a bus waiting to return to the pier near Panama City, where you started the tour and there will also be a bus waiting to take people to their respective hotels, where they were picked up in the morning.

A great trip but doubly exhausting as up for 24.5 hrs day before! Lived up to expectations. Would definitely recommend.

We had the same experience as the previous reviewers, in February 2019. The full transit tour was confirmed the night before and on the morning of, they told us that the engine broke down the day before. We planned the whole vacation around this date and were very disappointed.

I agree with the person who posted a review of October 5, 2019 tour in Spanish. They have one Ocean-to-Ocean tour per month, which was confirmed the day before the scheduled date. However, after arriving at the dock after over an hour bus ride to pick up passengers at various hotels, we were informed that the full transit tour was canceled and that we were offered the partial transit tour instead ($125 instead of $170). However, they gave us a really bogus story that changed each time it was told... that there had been an engine breakdown, that a ship was stuck, that the Canal Authority had told them they could not proceed... but based on the number of people on the partial transit tour (even the partial transit was not fully-booked), we believe that they simply canceled the tour because they did not have enough passengers signed up. This possibility is not described anywhere on the web site as a something that could occur. We had planned our entire vacation around the full-transit tour and it was something that we had been dreaming about doing for years. We were supremely disappointed. It is not the fault of TIQY, but I would not recommend this tour company (Canal & Bay Tours) to anyone. As for the tour itself, the guide was somewhat knowledgeable, but had to google answers to several of the questions that people asked. He seemed more interested in talking to people about his favorite cars. We actually learned more from the guide on the ship that was moored next to us in one of the locks. (Until our tour operator turned up the music so that we could not hear the other guide). STAY AWAY FROM THIS TOUR COMPANY!

Yo reserve el pasado 5 de octubre 2019 tour de océano a océano el día anterior me confirmaron la hora de salida. Cuando llegue ala hora de chequeo ME COMUNICAN QUE EL TOUR SERIA PARCIAL CUANDO EL Q YO SOLICITÉ Y PAGUE ERA DE OCEANO A OCÉANO CON UNA ESCUSA BARATA Y LO QUE ME DIGERON QUE EL TOUR PARCIAL ERA MEJOR QUE NADA. LA REALIDAD FUE QUE SOLO TENÍAN 30 PASAJEROS PARA EL TOUR DE OCEANO A ACEONO Y FUE MUCHO MAS COMO COLOCARNOS EN UN TOUR PARCIAL QUE ERA MEJOR Q NADA. Y CON UNOS ( LAMENTAMOS MUCHO Y LA DEVOLUCIÓN DE LO QUE PAGUE ) SE LAVARON LAS MANOS POR NO DARME POR LO Q YO PAGUE. MI RESERVA FUE LA 1009 5 ADULTOS Y 1 MENOS. COMO SE PUEDE CONFIAR CUANDO TE PROMETEN QUE TE VAN A DAR LO QUE TU QUIERES Y TE DAL . ***ALGO Q ES MEJOR QUE NADA*** O SEA LOS QUE LES DIO LA GANA.
