    We really enjoyed the up-close interactions along with great pictures of the three types of monkeys found on the islands within Lake Gatun. The hotel pick-up, boat ride, monkey viewing, and return trip were managed well. The experience could have been improved on several fronts....More

    This was the perfect excursion to take for the short window of time that I had. We saw all of the monkeys that we were trying to see along with a ride up the canal. Mario was awesome.

    Loved the boat ride on the Gatun Lake which is surrounded by a the tropical forest. There are a lot of monkeys on the island and they come to your boat to be fed with fruits.
