The Panama Canal has three sluicegates two located near the Pacific coast (the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Sluicegates) and the third along the Atlantic (the Gatun sluice gates). Of these three locks, the most impressive of all and worth visiting is the Gatun. Due to the fact that the three chambers are connected, you will have the opportunity to see the process completed in a single location, rather than in two stages as with the locks of Miraflores and Pedro Miguel. A boat takes about two hours to complete the transition from the Gatun Sluicegates whether heading north or south. There is a tower for visitors above the locks. We will have an opportunity to make good pictures from this location.

Depending on the size of each boat, one can see from 1-3 boats that make the transit simultaneously. From the time a ship comes into the locks, it takes about 10 minutes to complete the process.
