SHARED Guided Day Trip to the Danube Delta with Slow Big Boat - 2021


One day trip at a slow pace, on a comfortable and stable little ship. On the established route, we cross the wildest places of the Sireasa – Sontea – Nebunu area. Optionally you can have a traditional lunch based on fish at a fishermen settlement.

Join a GROUP of up to 10 persons for a one day trip in the Danube Delta, departure from Tulcea.

The Danube Delta trip is made with a one decked ship for leisure, 9 meters long, very stable, built for tourism. The ship has a wide deck equipped with comfortable chairs and provided with a sun tarp under which you can take shelter on very sunny days. The travel speed is about 10km/h (it is a slow ship). Another comfort point is the toilet located aboard.
