     The First Day

     Your trip begins from the moment you climb aboard our ship. Here you will be greeted by our staff who will inform about the program, the path that you will follow and then take you to the accommodation rooms. After you have been informed of the rules of the ship, with your consent, the ship will leave the port of Tulcea. You will have lunch while the ship is moving towards the village of Uzlina.

     The Third Day

     In the morning, after breakfast, you will leave for the village of St. George . Here you can spend your time on a beautiful walk to Sahalin, sunbathing on one of the best beaches around or visiting the town and its sites .

     The city of Saint George is an old and rustic village, a village on the oldest branch of the Danube. This place meets a wide variety of bird species. A simple stroll reveals a reassuring sight, strewn with many species of shore birds ( Cilicia fugitive , woodcocks , Plover , gulls , etc. ) and Danube species ( pelicans, cormorants, herons , spoonbills , avosete , stilt, ducks , geese, swans etc.) , virtually all species of birds in the Danube Delta can be found in this place , both freshwater and saltwater species as well as albatrosses. The best time to admire the Danube`s birds is in the morning because they are away during the day because of boats crossing the Danube.

     Sakhalin Island is formed at the mouth of the Danube and the Black Sea. This area is considered a secondary delta. The island tour is probably the most spectacular tour that you can take at St. George. This place continues the formation of the Delta by three mini branches. Because of the low water entering is only possible with small slowly boats. It is also a very important area for migration, nesting and feeding of many species of birds.

     The beach is preferred by tourists for its smooth sand, the quiet atmosphere and the wild sight. It is about 3 km away from the village and can be reached on foot in 15-20 minutes.
St. George is the only village in the Danube Delta where you can actually see both the Danube and the Black Sea together.

     You'll spend the night in this place.
