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! Ann Smith took care of our party of... More

We took a pontoon boat ride in the area around Grand Isle, which included the old civil war fort, Fort Livingston, and especially Queen Beth Island, where thousands of Pelicans and other birds nest at this time of year. The tour, led by Captain Kristan Wray, was terrific. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and took... More

There is no better fishing guide in Grand Isle. He knows the area and he knows where the fish are. He is also the coolest guide in the area. I've used Danny for the past four years and whether you are in his boat or a kayak you will have an amazing time. He's extremely nice and easy going. His... More

My wife and I spent a day (8 hours or so) with Danny Wray, inshore fishing. The fishing turned out to be slow; Danny was frustrated with that part of the day. But we each caught some (redfish, black drum). More importantly, both the various places we fished and Danny's information proved worth every moment. We learned a great deal... More

We have loved Grand Isle for years before discovering this wonderful Eco Tour. We are not big fisher people, but love the wildlife and scenery there. Beds Island had hundreds of nesting Pelicans, saw Frigate birds on a shrimp boat, lots of Dolphins and really enjoyed the history of Grand Isle told by our guide.

Had my parents fly in for Labor Day 2014 and wanted to give my Dad a great SE Louisiana fishing adventure. I called up Captain Danny Wray and chatted with him about a chartered trip to catch some fish, I told him that I had this dream of watching my old man battling one the famous Grand Isle Bull Reds....

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!
