Panama Canal connects which two great oceans?
The Panama Canal joins the Pacific and Atlantic seas by crossing the Isthmus of Panama. The 82 km long Panama Canal was created by humans. This canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and thousands of ships, from tiny individual craft to massive commercial ships known as "Panamax," can pass through it (a term referring to vessels having the largest eligible size in the canal). Initially, France assumed responsibility for the building but could not complete it. The United States was then tasked with completing the canal. The Panama Canal has reduced the time ships must travel between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
