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

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

I did some research and found Danny Wray and Calm Water Charters.... More

My husband's family has lived on the Island since 1782. For health reasons, he can no longer manage a boat. However, he wanted his family to experience the Island from the water. Captain Kristen Wray took my granddaughter, daughter and me on a outstanding 2.5 hour excursion through the local waterways. She was so personable and competent. More importantly, she... More
