UnCruise Adventures to launch new Pure Panama: Cultures, Coasts & Canal this April
Uncruise Adventures will launch a brand new sailing to Panama in April, 2017, which will offer an unusual off-the-beaten-path experience to holidaymakers. The Pure Panama: Cultures, Coasts & Canal cruise will take passengers into the jungles and tropical islands of Panama on-board the 62-passenger Safari Voyager on an eight-night sailing. They will visit the canal, Chagres River, and the Fort San Lorenzo UNESCO World Heritage Site.
UnCruise Adventures will add a new sailing itinerary to its portfolio this month, with the launch of Pure Panama: Cultures, Coasts & Canal.The cruise will take tourists off-the-beaten-path to less-explored parts of the country including lush jungles and picturesque islands.
The eight-night sailing in Panama will be available between April and November and will travel between Colon and Panama City. The 62-passenger Safari Voyager vessel will take holidaymakers on a journey through the Panama Canal, down the Charges River to go bird watching and will include a stop at Fort San Lorenzo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
“We’ve paired adventure activities in the jungle and around tropical islands with a rich cultural component that includes visits with the Guna and Embera native groups.
“Panama deserves a full week of exploration, more than offered by other cruise lines.”
Explained Captain Dan Blanchard, the CEO of UnCruise Adventures.
Starting from $3,795 per person for double occupancy, the sailing will include a pre-cruise hotel in Panama City, entry costs into the national parks and reserves, transfers, tours and activities, a massage, and all meals and drinks on-board the boat.

Panama is a country in Central America that boasts the beautiful Panama City with its historic "Casco Viejo" neighbourhood which was founded in 1671, following the dismissal of the original Spanish settlement by the British pirate, Henry Morgan. The city blends a modern side with a skyline similar to Dubai, with its historic neighbourhood that has touches of Old Havana and the French Quarter in New Orleans.
The country is home to the famous Panama Canal, which is more than 100 years old, and visitors can learn about the history of the canal and its construction at the Miraflores Visitor Centre. Nature and adventure enthusiasts can enjoy Panama’s Gamboa Rainforest Resort, a 30-minute drive from Panama City, where they can take the aerial tram 280 feet above the rainforest floor for stunning views of vibrant flowers, trumpet trees, mountain figs and balsa trees.
