Gatun Locks Panama Canal web cam Panama

North America > Panama > Panama
Webcam description
This live Panama Canal webcam is overlooking the Gatun Locks section on the Panama Canal in Panama

There are three sets of locks on the Panams canal. A two-step flight at Miraflores, and a single flight at Pedro Miguel, lift ships from the Pacific up to Lake Gatun; then a triple flight at Gatun lowers them to the Atlantic side. All three sets of locks are paired; that is, there are two parallel flights of locks at each of the three lock sites. This, in principle, allows ships to pass in opposite directions simultaneously; however, large ships cannot cross safely at speed in the Gaillard Cut, so in practice ships pass in one direction for a time, then in the other, using both "lanes" of the locks in one direction at a time.
