The Partial Transit tour has a duration of 4 to 5 hours. It goes through the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Locks, underneath the Bridge of the Americas and Centennial Bridge and Gaillard Cut. The Full Transit tour has a duration of 8 to 9 hours. You will transit through the three set of locks: Miraflores, Pedro Miguel and Gatun Locks, commencing in Pacific Ocean and ending in the Atlantic Ocean.In both options you will observe some of the works that are being held for the Canal's expansion.
