• Danube Delta Day Trip by Elfi Boat - PRIVATE tour

Day trip in the Danube Delta, with a very safe boat, an English manufacturing (Shetland 640) in high comfort. Boat is equipped with sofas, toilet, kitchen, fridge, march tarpaulin and bimini (sunshield).

We can take up to 4 persons on board, for maximum comfort.

Depending on weather conditions, you can sit in the bow (front) of the boat, here you have an unobstructed view of the entire route or in the exterior deck (back of the boat) where you are protected from the wind. If the sun is too strong, we can lift the mobile sunshield and create a shadow zone. If you get cold or you want to relax, there are two sofas in the cabin only good for a trip cradled by the waves.

It's an exceptional boat, especially in spring and autumn months! You will appreciate the comfort of the cabin in cold days or (especially) morning and evening.

Departure is from the pier at Port Aval - Tulcea.

Departure time is mutually agreed, if you want a day trip is highly recommended to start before 8 am, then it is even more quiet, we see a lot of birds and have time to go back to Tulcea on day light.

The Danube Delta Trip

Basically, in this day trip you can see a good part of the Delta, to feel the pulse of this area, to see a unique piece of nature in the world.

The route is long enough to see many kinds of natural biotopes, canals and lakes of the Danube Delta. Both ways are on the No. 1 tourist route, NOT on the Danube !

The route proposed by us is accredited by ARBDD (Delta Reserve Administration) as Tourist route No. 1. Departure is from Tulcea, we drive downstream on Tulcea Branch till to the junction with the Canal 36 (in about 20 minutes we are already in the Danube Delta), go downstream on Channel 36 and then we turn right on Garla Sireasa, a deltaic areas rich in fauna (water birds and animals). We continue the trip on Garla Sontea among floods full of birds and aquatic vegetation to Cot Candura. Here we have the opportunity to see white and yellow water lilies, swans, coot, ducks, geese, spoonbills, ibises and even pelicans.

Then we cross the lake Furtuna, one of the largest lakes of the Danube Delta, a very beautiful lake and rich in wildlife. If windy days and high waves, the lake will be avoided. The captain will decides whether or not crossing the lake.

Then we follow Olguta channel and get to Mila 23, right in the middle of the Danube Delta. The length of this route is about 4 hours. At Mile 23 we visit the village and talk with the locals, we can eat a traditional fish lunch (optional) at a very nice 3 *** pension. After lunch we go on the way back, much the same route as coming but I assure you, in reverse everything looks completely different, you will not recognize the places we passed. Length all the way back is about 5 hours.

The Lunch (optional) :

Lunch is provided at a 3* Pension in Mila 23. They cook fresh fish daily, in Lipovan traditional style. If you do not want the menu above please notify this at booking. On site you can not order something because is NOT enough time to prepare. The hosts have only fresh fish, meats being deeply frozen.

Lunch consists of soup (fish soup), second plate (a kind of fish) and dessert. Water is included.
