We start to explore by motor boats along the shadowed Cocos channel and the wider and calmer Mustaca channel. We have selected to tour the Holbina area, one of the most spectacular areas of the Danube Delta comprised of a network of small channels, ponds, smaller marshes, and ever-changing floating islets made of reeds (called "plaur") - a paradise for the large flocks of birds. Here we stop our engines and glide on the crystal water in silence propelled by our boatmen's oars. On our way back to the Anastasia, we'll stop for a short visit at a small fishery and meet some Lipovan fishermen. From early spring until late autumn, the Lipovans live in small traditional settlements erected on the banks of the channel.
After a late lunch on the floating hotel we continue our cruise on the rectified course of Sfantu Gheorghe channel to reach our overnight mooring location, the entrance of the Perivolovca channel.
Early breakfast for fishermen and boarding on the motor boats for the optional fishing program. The other guests will serve lunch during the journey the floating hotel takes on Garla Perivolovca, after that they will embark too on the motor boats for visiting the reservation. Taranova, Gorgostel, Chiril, Isaac, Dubcova and many others from a large ‘necklace' of lakes which are always a resting or feeding place for colonies of swans, pelicans and cormorants. We'll visit the lakes and notice that its fish is shared between the fishermen and birds. After visiting some traditional fishing settlements we'll return to the floating hotel have lunch and head upstream on Sfantu Gheorghe branch. Farewell dinner on board the floating hotel.
After the early breakfast the fishermen can go on the lakes, while the floating hotel will sail upstream towards Murighiol, the final destination of our journey. We will serve lunch around 3 P.M and we will then say goodbye.
