Man’s ingenuity triumphed when the fifty-mile Panama Canal cut through the Isthmus of Panama and joined the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Completed in 1914, this incredible feat was achieved with American technology and diplomacy; and the labor of 43,000 workers. Passing through the Gatun Locks the ship is raised and lowered by an immense water ladder. The ship glides into Gatun Lake, one of the world's largest artificial lakes, turns around, and continues through the locks. The Canal rises and descends 85 feet through six sets of locks. After turning around in Gatun Lake, our ship will then return down the steps back into the Atlantic Ocean.Until you have actually seen and been on the Panama Canal it is hard to envision. Panama varies in width from 30 to 120 miles, bathed by the Caribbean Sea on the north and the Pacific Ocean on the South.
