Travel by cruise ship to Panama Canal , Visit Panama Canal, Panama Canal Tours, Panama Canal Vacation Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Panama Canal is a 77.1-kilometre (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean.

Without Mike's knowledge and skill, this trip would have been almost impossible for a single boat.

I RECOMEND THAT YOU LISTEN TO IT THROUGH HEADPHONES AS THE SOUND QUALITY WHICH IS ONLY IN MONO, IS MUCH BETTER. SORRY ...
