Gatun Lake is a large artificial lake situated in the Republic of Panama that forms a major part of the Panama Canal. The lake was created between 1907 and 1913 by the building of the Gatun Dam across the Chagres River. At the time it was created, Gatun Lake was the largest man-made lake in the world, and the dam was the largest earthen dam. The Panama Canal stretches 76 km from the Caribbean Sea in the north to the Pacific Ocean in the south. Much of the journey is a narrow cruise through the jungle, but 33 km of the transit is across the sprawling Gatun Lake, a haven for anglers chasing peacock bass (a highly popular choice for many tourists), sailors, and scientific researchers - as it is the home of the well-known Smithsonian Tropical Institute.

If able to take some shore excursions, be sure to visit the authentic Embera Indian Village, a highly rated glimpse into the lives of the native Embera people, ride the Panama Railway Dome & motor coach to Colon to absorb the beautiful rainforest scenery, and if possible go for a gentle paddle on ocean kayaks between the Gatun Locks and Colon. Eco cruises on the lake take visitors to the back channels, island and bays that make up this unique ecosystem. Slowly cruise the back channels, island and bays that make up this unique area. Glide past lush rainforests to a secluded region of the lake and witness first-hand the splendour and excitement of the jungle. Glide past lush rainforests to a secluded region of the lake and witness first-hand the excitement of the jungle.

Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, the vast jungle area that is now the Gatun Lake was teeming with an overwhelming abundance of wildlife. As the region was flooded to create the lake, animals took refuge in the mountain peaks, which are now the many islands that dot the renowned lake. Exotic birds, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and crocodiles are just a few of the animals that you could see in their native surroundings. The sights, sounds and scents that make up this beautiful, tropical jungle will engulf you.
