According to the Panama Canal Authority, it takes from 8-10 hours for a port-to-port transit, depending on the size of the vessel

Well that all depends on where you are going and where you are starting from. However the canal is 50 miles long and it could take anywhere from 8 to 10 hours, depending on the boat size.

Panama is the only country the canal passes through. There was initially interest (a bit of which remains to this day) of building the canal through Nicaragua - there are three proposals being 'floated' around in Nicaragua currently to build a new trans-oceanic passing, but the Panama Canal only goes through Panama.

So ships and boats are are able to pass through and be level with the other side ADDED: The locks are necessary because the Canal has to pass over a high ridge.
