On the Atlantic side, the three chambers of the Gatun Locks raise ships 87 feet above sea level, while the Miraflores Locks transfer 26 million gallons of water in under 7 minutes at its Pacific end. The water for the locks is supplied by Gatun Lake, an artificial reservoir of 168 square miles. Passengers on tours are taken ashore by tenders. Later in the day, the ship retraces her route through the Gatun locks to dock in Colon in the Caribbean. Tours return to this point. All remaining passengers are able to disembark in Colon, where they may explore the dockside shops. There are no tours offered in Colon.
