The vast jungle area that is now the Gatun Lake was full of wildlife. As the
region was flooded, animals took refuge in the mountains that are now islands.
You will slowly cruise the back channels, islands and bays that make up this
unique system. Exotic birds, capuchin monkeys, sloths, iguanas and crocodiles are just a few of the animals that you will see.
The tour finishes with a visit to the Summit Zoo, a little rescue center of native animals, where the harpy eagle is the main character, as it is our national bird.
