Captain Danny Wray did an outstanding job taking the four of us out for a morning. His experience leading us to several locations, reading the currents, using technology,... all with humor along the way. Really went out of his way to ensure all had a fun time. Catching the huge bull reds was the highlight of the trip!

We fished all morning and had a tasty lunch of fresh sea trout before heading off. I strong recommend Ann for a great day of... More

She gave us a fabulous water tour of the area around Grand Isle, and knew tons of legends and facts about the island- its history, its inhabitants, and... More

My husband & I planned a trip to Mardi Gras, and wanted to experience fishing in the gulf. We weren’t sure what to expect, so we decided to wait on booking a charter ahead of time. We hit the visitor’s center when we arrived in Grand Isle, they highly recommended Calmwater Charters. Captain Danny was very accommodating and reasonably priced.... More

The captain made a special shorter tour to accommodate me ---- I was very grateful. Fun, relaxing, informative. If you're going to Grand Isle, definitely get in touch with them.

We booked the kayak fishing tour with Danny as our guide and had a fantastic fishing experience. The scenery was amazing and Danny knew all the greats spots for fishing. We caught lots of fish on both fly rods and spinning rods. Red fish, white trout, flounder, catfish and crabs were some of the fish we caught. I can't thank... More
