We study fluctuational transitions in a discrete dynamical system between two co-existing chaotic attractors separated by a fractal basin boundary. It is shown that there is a generic mechanism of fluctuational transition through a fractal boundary determined by a hierarchy of homoclinic original saddles. The most probable escape path from a chaotic attractors to the fractal boundary is found using both statistical analysis of fluctuational trajectories and Hamiltonian theory of fluctuations.
