Calmwater Charters offers 6 hour Inshore fishing charters trips using our 23' bay boat or native watercraft kayaks. We target speckled trout, redfish and flounder. We also do nature/birding/dolphin tours. The tours are two hours in duration and a favorite of families with kids visiting the island. We rent kayaks for $50 day, enabling access to lots of good fishing areas. Free fishing or paddling advice on the day of the rental is available to make your adventure a success. We depart each day from Bridge Side Marina in Grand Isle, Louisiana. Your Captain is experienced and knowledgeable with fifteen year guiding experience in the Barateria estuary. We can also help you coordinate multiple boat trips for parties of larger than four persons. We are fully insured and licensed. Prior reservations are recommended.

The weather looked sketchy at 6am when we met at the marina but somehow we avoided the storms. Great morning catching redfish, trout, and flounder in the marsh. Danny and Jason did a great job guiding our group of four kayakers. Everyone caught fish and went back to the camp happy. Two in our party caught their first redfish during this outing. Excellent tips and pointers along the way.

We have fished with Captain Danny twice now, once in his bay boat, once in kayaks. Both experiences were great! Great communication before and great experience during. He does not stop working the whole time, making sure the experience is positive even if the fishing is tough. He finds the fish and is a great teacher too. I have kayak fished with other guides who don’t do much more than make you feel like they are taking you fishing with them. Danny makes clear that his goal is putting the customers on fish and making sure they have a great experience. He was great with my 12 year old son, too.

Danny Wray made our day. What a great guide. He really knows how to fish the area and the conditions. No tide today but he still found reds and trout for us. Plus he had no problem sharing his knowledge of the estuary of the Liuisana Gulf. Thank you Danny !

Captain Danny provided an amazing excursion despite some cold and windy weather. He navigated us to some great fishing spots. Everyone caught something. He was especially encouraging to our 12 and 14 year olds. They caught some giant redfish. Had a delicious dinner that night and more to take home and freeze. Danny was also provided easy conversation and knowledge of Grand Isle history and local activities.
