Passage Planning Guide: Panama Canal and Approaches (2020 Edition) is the most comprehensive navigational guide to the Panama Canal to date. Written in consultation with the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) and their most senior pilots, it builds on the research and experience gained since the 2014 SIGTTO Guide to the Canal for LNG Carriers. The large format chartlets and supplementary navigational and procedural data in this new guide support Masters and officers in maintaining the highest safety standards in these constrained waters.


The user-friendly format of this publication will also help to ensure a successful transit for the increasing numbers of Neopanamax shipmasters, who may be completely unfamiliar with the canal due to changing patterns of global trade and the 2016 expansion of the locks.


This title supersedes 'Guidance for LNG Carriers Transiting the Panama Canal' by SIGTTO.
