For over 16 years, we have offered some of the best eco tours in Panama. Our unique lodging, the only houseboat in the Panama Canal, allows us to offer a unique way of experiencing the Canal. Our guests consistently describe our day tours as one of the highlights of their visit to Panama.
My name is Captain Carl and I first traveled to Panama as a young Marine with the US military. We trained in the jungles near the north entrance to the Canal at the Fort Sherman Army base. I had no way of knowing that, 17 years later, I would be living and workng in this special region of the world. For over 20 years now I have been working tourism from Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and now Panama.
For 16 years now, I have developed tours that showcase the Panama Canal and the surrounding jungle. My home is the only floating Lodge that has every existed on the Panama Canal. I look forward to sharing my unique experiences with others that travel to the Isthmus of Panama.

Our houseboat is a floating lodge, the only one that has ever existed in the Panama Canal. We are rated as one of the top experiences in Panama. Our volunteers would be living in the same houseboat and enjoying the same incredible experience.
The Lodge is in the middle of Lake Gatun, Panama Canal. We use fast motor boats to get around. We are in the jungle but civilization is not that far away, should you ever require it.
By volunteering with us, you will be able to practice your Spanish skills with our Staff and develop a whole other set of skills that you will use for a lifetime: customer service, resourcefulness, management, etc.
