Colon (Cristobal) Gatun Lake Tour Excursion Reviews
The tour I took was the Eco Tour of Gatun Lake plus Locks. The lake portion was so-so (word of caution: depending on your boat driver, sit on the right side – if you’re on the left you’ll spend the excursion looking at the lake and not the shoreline where birds, plants and wildlife are). The visit to the locks was very interesting – especially getting the landside view prior to the Millennium’s transit the next day. One barge and one freighter were passing through Gatun locks while we watched. If you can get an excursion that takes in Gatun locks you should. I cannot recommend the Gatun lake eco tour portion though.
