For the Danube Delta:

Specialised boats for photography, stable and secure, special designed for this activity, with waterproof spaces for transporting your equipment. For this activity we use larger boats than usual in order to ensure you a high grade of security for you and your equipment. In a common boat, in case of wind or waves everything will be wet, in our boats everything will be dry. We can do these tours for up to 4 persons (photographers), on a boat.

We also have small boats covered with camouflage nets, for photography. In a place with 90% water, many times your subjects are on water so there you have to be too. Up to 4 persons can stay on one of these boats and take pictures.

We have places for White and Dalmatian Pelicans (roosting places), Grebes, Herons, White Tailed Eagles (also feeding places, for winter), Kingfisher, small birds, Racoon Dog.

We have tents for 1-2 persons and we use it as individual small hides.
