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.

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!

My wife and I love to fish but we don't have the boat for it so we booked a trip with Danny and Calmwater Charters. Being from the area we know that some days the fish bite and some days they don't no matter who's the guide. So we base our opinion on how comfortable we feel and how hard... More

Ann Smith of Calmwater Charters gave us a terrific introduction to wade fishing, with plenty of fishing success to boot. She is a real pro who loves her work and takes great care of customers. 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

We almost didn't take the boat tour due to finances, but decided to splurge and do it anyway. I amkso glad we did! Captain Kristen was extremely knowledgeable, patient, polite, and kind. 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

Calmwater Charters Guide, Ann Smith provided me with an excellent introduction to wade fishing on and around Grand Isle. We fished the beaches, bridges, piers, and roads. Spending to best advantage the right amount of time at each location. I was despite being a novice able to catch redfish, black drum, and flounder. Ann was a patient and diligent instructor... 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
