We have actually transited the canal twice. The first time with Jean Francoise aboard his self built catamaran. We left last Friday night and locked up to the lake, where we spent the night. Saturday morning, we headed accross the lake and down the Pedro Miguel, and Miraflores locks to the Balboa Yacht club. We boarded the launch and once ashore our taxi driver/agent was waiting, to wisk us back to shelter bay.
