This was one of the best experience I've had. Such a close up encounter with the Titi and White faced monkeys. Also saw howler monkeys up in the trees and a crocodile too. While I do enjoy this "interaction" with the monkeys very much, I do hope we are not disturbing their natural habitat and they do not lose their ability to find food on their own

The trip we went on was about 1.5-2 hours...most riding in the speed boat through the Panama Canal. We passed a few cargo ships...they are huge! Once we got to the island in a lush jungle type area the boat moved in amongst the reeds and we saw about 4 very small monkeys. It was hard to take photos as we were in the back of the boat and had to shoot around people's heads. Tip: sit in one of the front rows of the boat and you will be able to get better photos. Wesaw some turtles, birds and a baby alligator too.

The monkeys are used to the small boats approaching. They are given bananas and grapes to get on the boats. It was so amazing to see them close.

What an awesome day spent on the lake. This was part of our Caravan tour. The boats held approximately 18 people give or take. It was around a 2 hour boat ride but you will more than likely see monkeys and maybe an alligator or two. Beautiful day out, weather perfect, water calm. We got up close and personal with the monkeys! I suspect they know the boat sound as the guide brought bananas and grapes & they know to come down from the trees but I didn't expect them to be right there with us on the boat! It was an incredible experience to see the monkeys from adult to the little ones. Definitely worth doing if in Panama.

We paid $55 a person to leave from the Gamboa public dock. Both our babies that are 4 years and 1 year old didn't cost anything. We had 6 adults and the 2 kids so we had a boat to ourselves. Our guide was great and gave us a great tour. We were able to feed bananas to tamarin monkeys and capuchin monkeys. The monkeys came right on the boat and took the bananas out of our hands. We also saw howler monkeys up in the trees and a bunch of different bird species. Our guide showed us basilisk lizards as well as iguanas. We also saw a on the way back. We left around 8 in the morning from the dock which seemed to be a good time to go out and see the wildlife. The boat ride through that canal was also great to see the ships up closer.
