                                PARTY BUS - February 3 (Friday) to February 6 (Monday), 2023 (2 amazing tours in one trip!)

A.)     Panama Canal “Partial” Transit - a once in a lifetime adventure

B.)      Visit the Biomuseo, designed by the renowned architect Frank Gehry.

We will be staying at the Radisson Hotel Panama Canal conveniently located in the entrance of the Amador Causeway. There are Many wonderful restaurants on the  Amador Causeway.    There is also an amazing sidewalk that starts at this hotel and goes all the way to the end of the Causeway.

The Amador Causeway was built with material taken out to build the Panama Canal..so it is a man made road that has wáter on both sides.  From one side you see the  entrance of the Panama Canal for the ships going Northbound (which is what we will do), and from the other side you have the most amazing view of the skyline of Panama City.

The best way to experience the Panama Canal is in a cruise onboard the Pacific Queen. You will have the opportunity to appreciate the canal up close and to transit through the locks alongside the big ships. See the tugboats in operation and the Panama Canal expansion new set of locks!

The Pacific Queen was designed specifically for day tours and cruises.  It is  a Norwegian built cruiser with a capacity for 250 passengers with 119 ft. in LOA and 25 ft. in Beam. Passengers will enjoy its two spacious, enclosed decks, fully equipped with air conditioning and a comfortable seating arrangement. In addition, an open-air third deck serves as an ideal vantage point from which to enjoy your cruise and relax in a tropical setting. The vessel’s bow can accommodate additional passengers, and enjoys an open-air setting.

Onboard the Pacific Queen we operate a souvenir shop, complete with local handcrafts, Panama Canal souvenirs and more. In the first floor, you will find a lounge area with bar where food and drinks are served.

The Pacific Queen has a speaker system for tour guide narration of the cruises. The Pacific Queen has six conveniently located restrooms to ensure a comfortable trip.

The itinerary is:

We begin our trip with a pre-boarding continental breakfast at 7:00AM and we  serve you mimosas, wine (red or white), sangria, water,  all the way. We will stop along the way for short breaks. We will also have snacks for you as we travel. Lunch at “Va & Ven” in Anton (lunch is on your own). We arrive at Radisson Panama Canal Hotel in Amador around 4PM.  That evening dinner will be on your own.

You can arrange that at the front desk.)

B.)      February 4, 2023 (Saturday) That morning we leave the hotel early because the “Partial transit” starts around 7AM.   It is a 5 to 6 hour tour total.  The drive from our hotel to the Flamenco Marina (where we board the boat), is about a 15 minute ride.

***They will confirm  the time the partial transit leaves the day before. Since they have to get permission from the  ACP to transit the canal, they do not have that information yet.

Upon our return from Gamboa our bus will be waiting for us  at Flamenco Marina to take us back to our hotel.
