Videos of our Panama Canal Transit



It’s an eerie feeling the first time the lock chamber doors close.

The turbulence created by the inflowing water was incredible. If you fell in, you’d be a goner.

Small but sturdy locomotives are used to maneuver ships through the locks.

The most time-consuming part of the activity in each chamber is getting all the boats/ship in and tied up. The actual filling and emptying of the chambers is relatively quick.
