In late April, my husband and I experienced 10,000 pairs of nesting pelicans on an island just off the coast of Grand Isle Louisiana. The island is Queen Bess and Capt. Danny of Calmwater Charters provided us an incredible view of the nesting pelicans. As photographers, we very much wanted to photograph the baby pelicans along with their attentive parents.... More

Danny Wray is not only an excellent guide, he is a very interesting person to talk with and learn from. His knowledge of fishing and places is top notch - but he can just as easily talk about the ecology of the area and tour the islands form the water with the history of the places. Really a great Day... More

Had a day to myself when my wife decided to take a tour of old houses/plantations. Called up Captain Danny and we had a great day kayak fishing. He has extensive knowledge of the area and put us onto fish. This was my first time fishing for redfish, but I also caught flounder and speckled trout. Captain Danny provides instruction... More

We brought a group of ladies to Grand Isle for a fishing trip and had a wonderful time with Capt. Danny. He's professional, funny and so accommodating, always baiting the hooks for us! He took us to all the best fishing spots in the marsh, we got to see the birds on Queen Bess Island, and we all went home... More

Came to South Louisiana for business and decided to take a day and fish. Capt. Danny did not disappoint. We fished the day after major rain and floods and still caught some great reds and a few specks. If you are in the South Louisiana area you must book a trip with Calmwater Charters and Capt. Danny.

There is not a better place in the world to fish for redfish than the south Louisiana marsh. Grande Isle is an excellent place to fish. We chose to do something a little unique this time....ie fish out of a Kayak (rather than take the bayboat). Capt Danny Wray came highly recommended and he did not dissappoint. He made it... More

My company scheduled a fishing trip for the weekend of 10/3/15. The weather was cold and windy, and our expectations were low. My group (3 coworkers/friends) had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Danny. Captain Danny showed his experience and put us on the bull reds, even in poor weather conditions. Our boat had a blast catching bull reds. Captain... More
