First, explore the famous Panama Canal; then, discover an underwater jungle at nearby Gatun Lake. With all scuba diving equipment, lunch and round-trip hotel transportation included, this convenient tour is perfect for experienced diving enthusiasts.

See the Panama Canal from a unique perspective and explore the waters of Gatun Lake on this full-day scuba-diving adventure from Panama City. After pickup from your downtown Panama City hotel, you'll be transported to your first dive stop, an old bridge located on the Panama Canal, which connects the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

After a brief safety overview from your guide, dive into the waters of the Panama Canal! Enjoy scuba-diving in a unique location and see old construction equipment submerged after the completion of the canal in 1914. After spending time exploring the canal waters, hop back in your boat and head to Gatun Lake. Eat lunch on board the boat and admire the scenic landscape from the water as you cruise to the lake.

After lunch, explore Gatun Lake, a man-made lake connected to the Panama Canal. Gatun Lake serves as a key component in carrying ships across the Isthmus of Panama. Dive into Gatun Lake and see a variety of French and American dredging equipment submerged here, including drills, boilers and trains. You'll see different types of marine life as you dive around the submerged equipment, including peacock bass. After scuba diving in Gatun Lake, you'll be transported back to your hotel.
