The guideA trip to the Danube Delta has no charm without a guide. The guide is the one making difference between a succesful trip, full of informations and a dull ride with a boat driver. All our guides are members of AGPDD (Danube Delta Professional Guide Association).The boatThe boat you’ll go is an open boat, equipped with banquets with backrest and cushions for ghighest possible comfort, with high stability and safety. The boat is used only for tourism. Everyone in the boat will receive a lifejacket.
The boat is not covered, has no roof, no tarp or other inventions that obstruct you to see the fabulous nature around you and passing birds in flight. As we wrote in the title, it is a trip, not a transport. We do not have (and do not want) boats draped with plastic sheets, covered, closed.Yes, on our boats the sun will be directly above you but you’ll see everything around, even the birds on the sky. The tripBasically, it’s a day trip you can see a good part of the Danube Delta,you can feel the pulse of this area, far away from the world, eat a traditional fishemen lunch, to see a piece of nature unique in the world, a forest also unique in the world, the only city in the Delta and take a swimm into the Black Sea. We cover virtually all the landmarks of the Danube Delta, for a full day!The trip is also a very good option to arrive in Sulina in civilized conditions, without being crammed into overcrowded speed boats (with uncertain schedule).Our average speed of travel is medium, we are specialized in trips to Discover Danube Delta and not the speed transport. Our boats drive at an average speed of about 20 km/h and will stop at all the points of interest for enjoying the wonderful landscapes, for a few photos with Danube Delta flora and fauna.Departure is from our pier at Port Aval - Tulcea. The trip last from 7 to 8 hours.This trip is done on the Tourist route No 1. Departure is from Tulcea, you'll discover the area downstream on Tulcea Branch, to the junction with the Canal 36 (in about 10 minutes you are already in the Danube Delta), go downstream on Channel 36 and then turn right on Garla Sireasa, a deltaic areas rich in fauna (water birds and animals). Continue the trip on Garla Sontea among floods full of birds and vegetation. Here you have the opportunity to see white and yellow water lilies, swans, coot, ducks, geese, spoonbills, godwits, ibises and even pelicans.Then cross the lake Fortuna (Furtuna) one of the large lakes of the Danube Delta, a lake very beautiful and rich in wildlife. If are windy days and high waves or the water level is too low, the lake will be avoided. The guide will decides whether or not crossing the lake.Follow Olguta channel and get to Mila 23, right in the middle of the Danube Delta. The length of this route is about 3 hours. At Mila 23 you can visit the village and talk with the locals, eat a traditional fish lunch (optional) in a very nice household or local pension. After lunch you go on the way back, much the same route as coming but I assure you, in opposite direction everything looks completely different, you will not recognize the places we passed. Length all the way back is about 2-2,5 hours.
