Today we had the opportunity to visit the Bona islet. This area is part of a rich marine ecosystem where the upwelling process creates a big amount of nutrients that holds a vast population of seabirds such as brown boobies, magnificent frigate birds, and brown pelicans among others. These graceful and elegant birds of coastal skies use the rocky surface of the islets to nest in good numbers and at the same time the fly across the zodiacs to impress the nature photographers with their beauty. It was now time to continue with our crossing through the Panama Canal where guest will enjoy and learn about this engineering wonder. Later on, guests were invited to share a delicious cocktail and eat some ceviche dish while enjoying the first set of locks called Miraflores. Tonight our goal is to reach the interior of the Gatun Lake as we finish with the first part of our transit through the Panama Canal.
