• PRIVATE Speed Boats Day Trips in Danube Delta - best routes

A special offer for those who want to visit the Danube Delta in a short time. Thus, starting from Tulcea, can reach distant points of the Danube Delta and return the same day.

It is a day trip in the Danube Delta, departing from Tulcea and destination point Mila 23, Crisan, Sulina or Letea.

The boat

The boat you'll go in the Danube Delta is a covered boat (windshield + tarp), equipped with banquet with backrest and cushions for high comfort, with a very good stability and reliability. Each person in the boat will receive a jacket.

The boat is covered with tarpaulin that can be opened in nice days or can cover partially (bimini top) in very sunny days or completely closed in case of rain or bad weather. It is a perfect boat for the cold days of early spring and late autumn.

The trip

Basically, is a day trip which you can see a good part of the Danube Delta, to feel the pulse of this area away from the rest of the world, eat a traditional fisherman lunch, see a piece of nature unique in the world.

Our travel speed is about 40 km/h, the boat is designed for fast running with several stops in places of great interest: landscape, flocks of birds, pelicans.

Departure is from the pier at Port Aval - Tulcea.

Tours offered by us are:

1. Tulcea - Mile 23

It is done on Touristic route No. 1. Departure is from Tulcea, we go along the Tulcea Channel till to the intersection with Channel 36 (in about 10 minutes after departure, we are already in the Danube Delta), we drive along the Channel 36 and then turn right on Garla Sireasa, a very rich areas in deltaic fauna (water birds and animals). We continue the trip on Garla Sontea including flooded areas full of birds and vegetation. Here we have the opportunity to see white and yellow water lilies, swans, coot, ducks, geese, spoonbills, godwit, ibis and perhaps even pelicans. We drive along Olguta channel then and get to Mila 23 Village, right in the middle of the Danube Delta. The length of this route is about 1.5 - 2 hours. At Mila 23 we visit the village and talk with local people, we 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 even recognize the places we passed. Length all the way back is about 1.5 hours. The entire tour (with lunch) takes around 5-6 hours.

2. Tulcea - Mila23 - Letea

Probably the most requested day trip in the Danube Delta. The route is common with the above (up to Mila 23) and from there it goes through lakes Radacinos, Trei Iezere, Bogdaproste and then Bogdaproste channel till to the Old Danube, then the channel Madgaru until Letea Village. Here we make a visit to Letea Forest and then we eat a traditional lunch at a local house (optional). The return route is on the Danube (shorter, faster). The length of this route is about 3 to 3.5 hours from Tulcea to Letea, about 2 hours to visit Forest Letea and about an hour if you want lunch, the return trip takes 2:00.

3. Tulcea - Mila23 - Sulina

A boat trip really required especially in the summer months. We see the wild part of the Danube Delta until Mila 23 (see Tour No 1) and then go to Crisan on the Old Danube and from there on the main Channel, Sulina, till to the city Sulina. You can visit the city and then you can take a swimm in the Black Sea. Optionally you can have lunch. Being a city, you can choose the terrace / restaurant where you want to have lunch.

The route to the Sulina takes about 2.5 to 3 hours and the return trip, on the Danube, takes about 1.5 hours. Rest of the time you can use as you wish, in Sulina. We have to be back in Tulcea at sunset, so we have to leave Sulina at least 2 hours before sunset.

4. Tulcea - Mila23 - Letea - Sulina

It is a very long and demanding trip. Route to Letea is described above (Tour No 2). From Letea, we drive alongn Garla Barbosu, a very nice canal, filled with water lilies from spring to autumn, until Sulina city where you can visit points of interest and / or you can take a swimm in the Black Sea. Optional, lunch can be in Letea or in Sulina.

The route takes about 3 to 3.5 hours to Letea, one hour visiting the forest, about an hour to Sulina and 1.5 hours return trip on the Danube.
