The Helicopter Tour

The Beginning of Panama Canal Ocean to Ocean Helicopter Tour

We’ll start our trip going to go to the Bridge of the Americas, Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. This bridge was built in 1962, becoming the second bridge on the Panama Canal.

Visit the Miraflores Locks

In Miraflores, we can observe the operations of the Old Panama Canal, completed in 1914. These locks were built as a hinge and allow ships up to 289 meters long and up to 5,000 TEUs (1 TEU is equivalent to a 20-foot container).

Without the Panama Canal, the largest cities at the west coast of the American Continent wouldn’t be what they are today.

Flight to  the New Expanded Canal

After visiting the Miraflores Locks not deviate briefly to the east indirection to CocolĂ­ Locks, part of the proposed Canal expansion, which opened on June 26, 2016.

These new locks allow ships up to 366 meters long and up to 13000 TEUs (1 TEU is equivalent to a 20-foot container).

Pedro Miguel Locks

Part of the old canal and like the Miraflores locks both have a length of approximately 3 kilometers including access to the walls. Pedro Miguel is the set of locks connecting Lake Miraflores to Gatun Lake, with the highest elevation.

The Gatun Lake

The Gatun Lake, constructed to supply water from the Chagres River to Panama Canal, the Gatun Lake used to the largest artificial lake ever constructed.

Nearly 17,000 commercial vessels cross the Panama Canal each year.

Agua Clara Locks, Expanded Canal

Located on the north side of the Panama Canal, the Agua Clara Locks are our final destination. A unique view of Gatun Lake, Panama Canal and the Atlantic Ocean.

What to Bring?

For each flight, it is important to bring original identification documents such as identity cards for Panamanians and passports for foreigners.

    Excelente compañia.

    Vinimos a PanamĂĄ solo para cononcer el Canal y este fue el mejor de todos los tours del canal que tomamos.

    El canal es lo mejor, la selva es increible, pero el lago gatĂșn fue brutal.

    Un tour necesario si vienes a PanamĂĄ. Un poco costoso comparado con otros tours, pero vale la pena.
