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).

  1. The explanation was well stated and now I understand the dynamics behind the madness. I had not considered the raging of the waters between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and the fact it took thousands of lives in its creation.

  2. Pretty Cool video, thanks for posting this video.
    I found your YouTube channel just now by searching for "Travel Panama canal videos."
    I've got lots of Travel videos on my YouTube channel.

    I have clicked on the Like button and left comments on your videos.

    I have clicked on the magic red button for you. Please return the favor by adding me as well. Thanks.

  3. My question is why build a canal? Just clear the land wide enough to allow ships to pass without all the sophisticated dams and compartments being filled or emptied each time a ship wants to pass.

  4. The Panama Canal was a good idea in my opion. It saves a lot of time (Even tho it takes 8 hours going through the canal) And if u were to go around South America it would take 7,800 miles more than going through the canal 🙂

  5. I don't think it has changed much since we went through it in 1989, then when we were on a tour of Panama City in 1992, did a tour and visited one of the locks, and saw operation from the land.
