An exclusive offer from Discover Danube Delta, we give you the opportunity to discover the amazing world of birds in the Danube Delta, in one day, together with one of the professional birding guides from our team.

You have included the boat (and gas) and a good guide, to show you as more as possible from the rich fauna of the Danube Delta, on the best routes available for each season.

The trip

Being a private program we can start at any hour but for the best results, we recommend you to start at sunrise time. The trip lasts until sunset and cover an important part of the Danube Delta. We do the route to include marshlands, salty sand islands, forest areas, lakes and special areas of the Delta with places for feeding or roosting for many species of birds. Is not a trip to check places, is a trip to search and find birds, it is a SLOW speed trip with target on special places where we can observe birds.

Usually we do the tour from Tulcea to Mila23 village. Here we can make a stop for mid day hours and you can experience local food for lunch. The guide is a professional birdwatcher. He knows very well where are the good places for birding, for interesting species and how to approach by boat to the birds, to see them without disturbing.

All we need to know is the hour you want to start the tour, the hour you want to finish the tour (if you have a limit hour) and, the most important, if you have target species you want to see. In order to build an wish list, please download the Dobruja and the Danube Delta birds check list so you can find the species found here, month by month: Birds list of Dobruja and the Danube Delta.

We’ll bring a field scope and we’ll stop in some good places to scan also the dry parts of the Delta.

Departure is from our pontoon at Port Aval – Tulcea. Please be sure you can reach the meeting point at the established hour.
