Canal & Bay Tours, pioneers in excursions through the Panama Canal and Panama’s spectacular bay, is a renowned local company that began operations in 2003 with the idea of providing the opportunity to meet and life the experience of sailing through one of the greatest works of world engineering of the twentieth century; the interoceanic path between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.

The company’s fleet features three ships ranging from “Fantasía del Mar” (Fantasy of the Sea), built by Eastern Shipbuilding Corp. in the USA. This is a boat with a capacity for 394 people and is considered one of the oldest and most appreciated jewels of the company that is preserved in perfect conditions to provide an unforgettable nautical journey. In addition, Tuira II is a boat with a capacity for 407 people, 2 spacious floors and a sundeck with the best views and freshest sea breeze.

Isla Morada is a ship that tells its own fascinating history. This boat was designed as a luxury mega yacht for Boston millionaires. Its construction was carried out by Lawley & Sons, the Cox & Stevens company with capacity for 96 people. It was made entirely from wood and began to sail in 1912 with the name of Santana. Among its owners was the most famous gangster in history, the legendary Al Capone.

In summary, all boats were created to offer maximum comfort and safety by providing air-conditioned lounges and large open and covered spaces that will allow you to enjoy the incredible views during navigation. In fact, in addition to the tours through the Panama Canal, these boats are the best option to organize private events, parties, celebrations, as well as corporate activities, team buildings and much more, assisted by a professional team who will ensure that all expectations are met.

The company’s great experience and background has led them to work hand in hand with local and international corporations, travel agencies, tour operators and cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland American Line, Princess Cruises, among others, offering the best service to tourists from all over the world.

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Panama City, Canal & Bay Tours has organized multiple events on board these three boats. The next event will take place on Sunday August 18, 2019 with "Colaquito Cortez", also known as Panama’s Orchestra Man.
