Panama Canal Full Transit (NOT Time-Lapse)

This is a complete recording of our Panama Canal Transit on February 15th 2017 starting in Panama Bay as the sun rises over the Pacific* at 6:40 am and continues non-stop through all the locks, the Culebra cut, Gatun Lake and out past the breakers into the Caribbean Sea.

The full transit took approx 11 hours. This video is slightly shorter because during the Culebra cut area and the Gatun lake I was not always using multiple cameras. This is because I needed to insure that I had enough memory to record the final lock at Gatun.

Technical details:
2) Panasonic HDC-TM41H HD Camcorders(1080)
1) GoPro 4 (4K)
1) Moto Z Android
Approx 200 gb of memory cards

Edited using Sony Vegas 13. It took 5 days to edit and 40 hours to render and the file size, WMV is 38gb.

Because of the amateur nature of the recordings the sound quality on the cameras, excessive wind noise, most of the audio has been replaced with sound files from,, YouTube's Audio Library as well as some audio salvaged from the original videos.

The only change to the video was some minor contrast adjustment to remove some of the glare and white noise. Other than that this is what we saw from our view.

This was recorded on the NCL Jewel from the deck of our Suite 10002.

On a personal note: My grandfather worked on the canal in the 1920s and this was the first time anyone from our family has been back to the canal. It was impressive and meets and beats expectations. If you have the opportunity to take this trip I highly recommend it.

Note: This may be the first full non time-lapse recording of a Panama Canal Transit. I have not been able to find one, if you do please let me know.

*yep, because of the location of Panama you can see the sunrise over the Pacific.

Panama Canal Full Transit in 5-minutes, Cruzando el Canal de Panama en 5 minutos

The Celebrity Infinity was making its way from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean through the Panama Canal. This video was taken from a fixed position on the top deck of the cruise ship for more than 10 hours. It shows the whole route and operations with short explanations. The length of the video was reduced to less than 6 minutes.

President Theodore Roosevelt built Panama Canal and used the Army Corps Engineers to complete the project. The main reason for the canal was to reduce the cost and distance by not having to travel around the tip of South America for another approximately 5,000 miles. The secondary reason is for security of the country, to be above to move the navy ships quickly between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Este video fue tomado desde una posición fija en la cubierta alto del crucero durante más de 10 horas. Muestra la ruta entera y operaciones con explicaciones breves.

El Canal de Panamá, el canal de 50 millas de largo crea un atajo y evite el viaje largo alrededor de la punta de Sudamérica y acorta el viaje de aproximadamente 5.000 millas.

Time-lapse Shows How Ships Get Through The Panama Canal

A video released from the US Coast Guard shows how one of its vessels travels through the Panama Canal. The Canal is a complex system that utilizes an artificial lake to help ships traverse between the Continental divide. Following is a transcript of the video.

The Panama Canal is an engineering marvel. About 14,000 ships use it every year. The canal is about 48 miles long. It functions as a waterway between North and South America. The canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans

Before the canal, ships had to sail 13,000 miles around the tip of South America An artificial lake across Panama connects the oceans. The Gatun Lake is 85 feet above sea level. How do the ships get raised and lowered?

The canal has a water lock system that acts like a massive elevator. When ships enter the locks, they're raised by water from the lake. Each lock raises the ships until they're 85 feet above sea level. They then travel across Gatun Lake.

The ship is then lowered by the locks to sea level. On average, it takes 8 hours for ships to cross the canal.

The Panama Canal (Spanish: Canal de Panamá) is a 48-mile (77.1 km) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. There are locks at each end to lift ships up to Gatun Lake (85 feet (26 m) above sea-level).
