GROUP Danube Delta SLOW 4h Trip "Nature Intensive"
Day trip, with departure from Tulcea, with strong highlights on the Danube Delta’s NATURE. We will show you, in a short time, at a low speed, as many things as possible ftom the wonderful nature that surrounds us, with an exceptional guide.
This trip is done with an OPEN BOAT. Open means it has no roof, tarpaulin or windows. We are doing quality tourism and we want to show you the wild and beautiful Danube Delta, full of life, you can see the birds in flight, you can admire the spirals of the pelicans that climb the thermal columns (we will tell you more on the spot).
As a route, we will drive about 2 km on the Danube, downstream, then on Channel 36 and Sontea. From here, the captain of the boat, a professional boat driver, together with the guide, a good fauna / flora / eco specialist, will decide the route followed, depending on the season, the water level and the fresh information we have about the places of feeding or migrating birds.
We provide you with a binocular, you can watch birds, because we will not approach them (or the nesting places) below their tolerance limit. It’s much more interesting to watch birds during their activities than to see them frightened and running from the fast boats.
