This was a relaxing boat ride. The guide tells you about the scenery and history of the river and canal. We saw monkeys, sloughs and birds.

I saw half dozen animals with this tour. Crocodile, Monkey (3 types), lizards, and a bird that I cannot remember the name. Try to get the seat that is not in the middle.

Small boat, about 2 dozen guests. When animals are spotted, captain does a great job moving the boat so all get a chance to view and take pictures. Not a long ride - maybe 1.5 hours - but that is plenty.

No need for a half or full day tour. You see everything you need to see in the hour and a half tour bring bug spray

We stayed at the Gamboa Resort and they had a desk there with various tours that you could take. We did all of our tours through that desk. Perhaps if you contact the resort, they can help you out.

Sorry, I can't remember either. I don't remember the cost being high enough to make me think it was unreasonable though. And totally worth the memories... Enjoy!
