Octavio and Iann were absolutely the best directors on our cruise. Their knowledge of nature, history and so much more was very interesting - and made our tour fascinating experience. I will never forget. The crew was always smiling, helpful, and fun.

The pace of the trip was wonderful. The itinerary gave you alternate active days and quiet time. We have taken two other small boat trips and can rate this as one of the best. The crew was fabulous. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to sail with everyone. Iann and Octavio were also great leaders and examples for the crew.

I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful experience. Having never done this before you completely changed my mind about adventure type travel vacations. The staff was absolutely PHENOMENAL, as was the food and the destinations. I loved every minute of the trip and I thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!

I had an excellent time. Everything exceeded my expectations. Iann and Octavio were so patient and are so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. The whole group of passengers were great. I would rate my trip as one of the best ever. The captain and crew were all so friendly. Even the canal pilot was friendly and informative. Thanks.

Office staff i.e. Thelma Bodden right through to guides and crew (boats, cooks, servers, etc) were all so efficient, friendly and ¨family¨- just as you had spoken of. We will go home and recommend this trip to our friends - and we will remember our experience with you forever. Thanks so much!

Staff was very helpful in every way possible. Overall an enjoyable vacation for my family. I enjoyed meeting new friends from several countries. Staff was extremely patient and kind to everyone. They gave detail instructions and was very knowledgeable in all of the excursions on board.

A most enjoyable trip seeing the working of the Panama Canal, my number one reason for coming. All the extras were a bonus for me and were most enjoyable, interesting and informative. Thelma Bodden from the office was most helpful; she answered quickly all my questions and concerns. I appreciated the fact that I could just use tape water to brush my teeth safely, was supplied with lots of bottle water to drink.

Bill Gates visits the Panama Canal

Melinda and I recently took our kids on vacation to the Panama Canal. I know it’s not exactly a typical vacation destination (and we did spend a few days at the beach afterward).
