There is not a better place in the world to fish for redfish than the south Louisiana marsh. Grande Isle is an excellent place to fish. We chose to do something a little unique this time....ie fish out of a Kayak (rather than take the bayboat). Capt Danny Wray came highly recommended and he did not dissappoint. He made it... More

My company scheduled a fishing trip for the weekend of 10/3/15. The weather was cold and windy, and our expectations were low. My group (3 coworkers/friends) had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Danny. Captain Danny showed his experience and put us on the bull reds, even in poor weather conditions. Our boat had a blast catching bull reds. Captain... More

Our group of six booked with Captain Danny of Calm Waters Charters in September at the last minute due to our offshore charter trip getting pushed back a day. He was able to put two boats together to accommodate our group. We fished the evening bullred trip on Thursday and half day trip on Friday morning. The captains were great... More

I scheduled a sunset eco tour with Captain Danny for Sunday evening, but it didn't happen. He called Sunday morning to confirm our plan and we talked about the sun setting around 7:30 and he said that we should be in the water by 5:30. He asked if we could meet him at the marina for 5, but never told... More

We are so sorry that you were not able to make the departure time at the dock for the tour. My wife sent you a text stating that the departure time was 5pm. You responded affirmatively to her text 1.5 hrs before the tour departure time. There were four other people on the tour that arrived on time. If you... More

I worked with Capt. Danny for 5 weeks in June/July 2015 on a bird study in Barataria Bay. Captain Danny's knowledge of the waters and area is incredible. He knew where to go and where to not go. While we were working, Capt. Danny would say "I bet they will be catching fish here [or there] on these tides with... More

Had an amazing fishing trip with Capt. Danny around Grand Isle. He was extremely polite, respectful, funny, easy to talk to, has a positive outlook on everything and is an AWESOME fishing guide. He always made sure that our lines were baited and that we were casting in the right area. Captain Danny was able to put us on fish... More

Took our first Grand Isle charter with Captain Danny. Great guide-knows the area very well and knows where to find fish. Our 14 year old mentioned that Captain Danny is a "nice ole fisherman"! Gets around very well - Was able to keep us baited, untangled, and catching fish. We will always remember "pop it", "slow and steady" and "don't... More

Tommy Awesome Trip!!!,.. Not only did Capt. Danny give myself and my son a charter we will never forget!, The information and techniques he shared with us were more than I'd learned in a life time in south La., Making only 2 stops, and with the non stop action we easily put 50 nice specs in the box by 9:30,...

Best fishing trip we could have taken period. Spent the morning fishing with Danny Wray all around Grand Isle. When the fishing slowed down in one spot Danny moved us to a new one where we couldn't pull them into the boat fast enough! He was very knowledgeable of the island as well as its history. His personality made for... More

From the initial inquiry calls that took place several months ago; to the advice given for gear; to the rental use (weekly rental with drop off and pickup right to our camp); to wonderful day spent on the water with a kayak fishing charter: our experience with Calm Water Charters was excellent!
