Went there to fish. No trophies but a wide variety of fish not found in most of the U.S. Richard Cahill operates the fishing guide service. Fished with guides Jorge and Elio. Good job. See monkey island.
When we made our transit through the canal the majority of the time was spent crossing the lake which lies between the locks. It's a very peaceful stretch of water where tiny islands are scattered covered in trees and plants. There are quite a lot...More
This was our second visit to Panama and the canal and the Panamax locks had been completed since our last visit. The jungle surrounding the lake is still lush and teeming with wildlife although they have been having a drought and there were some brush...More
Blessed beyond belief that I experienced a chance encounter with wildlife, met an indigenous tribe and took a small boat ride with a local fisherman through the Panama Canal zone. As I looked around, I was surrounded by rain forest on both sides. Our small...More
Rent a panga and go fishing on Lake Gatun. You'll drive right next to the giant tankers and cruise ships that are transversing the Canal. Catch hard-fighting peacock bass in one of the thousand fishing holes on the finger lakes as well as see incredible...More
We explored the fringes of Gatun Lake in a small boat as we looked for birds with a tour from Canopy Tower. The tour was all we hoped it to be. We had close up sightings of many species in relatively secluded conditions.
On our Holland America Line cruise through the Panama Canal, locks at each end lift ships up to Gatun Lake, an artificial lake created to reduce the amount of excavation work required for the canal, 26 m above sea level. The original locks are 34...More
When going through the Panama Canal, you must cross Gatun Lake. A vast area that was created when the canal was built. You can see small islands that were once part of the land, with trees growing out from the water level, Most ships wait...More
The ride will be bumpy depending on three factors, type of boat (unless its a pontoon boat as Dennis at Arenosa has it will doubtless be a flat low "Jonboat"), speed (can be controlled) and waves -which are a function... More
The ride will be bumpy depending on three factors, type of boat (unless its a pontoon boat as Dennis at Arenosa has it will doubtless be a flat low "Jonboat"), speed (can be controlled) and waves -which are a function strictly of wind on Gatun.... so go early, go when its not windy and go slow - and Mom will have a great day!

watch out for gators. the fishing is good there, even bank fishing. I know of no tours that book that, but I used a lot of Uber and hooked up with a few enterprising drivers who worked on their own an was able to book some... More
watch out for gators. the fishing is good there, even bank fishing. I know of no tours that book that, but I used a lot of Uber and hooked up with a few enterprising drivers who worked on their own an was able to book some interesting private tours for cash. also, Uber is the best way to get around and the cheapest. download the app so you'll be ready. FYI. I spent 4 months there and did the canal 3 times. also, hot, hot. in our winter.
