Did You Know?

It takes an average of eight to ten hours for ships to pass through the three sets of locks that make up the Panama canal. The alternative, sailing around the continent of South America via Cape Horn, takes considerably longer. The cost, around $450,000 per ships passage, is also considerably cheaper than the cost of sailing around South America.
