Cheyne Waldner

Member since February 2016

Dana Point, United States

Background
I have lived locally for over 30 years and grew up fishing, diving and surfing on the waters off Southern California. When it comes to finding areas only the locals know about, I have a clear advantage and enjoy sharing my knowledge with my customers. I am Certified Dive Master as well as a Boat Captain.
Techniques
I am an expert at locating fish both near shore, offshore and at the Islands. I specialize in targeting a wide range of fish including Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Shark, Halibut, Bass, Yellowtail, Rock Cod, Wahoo, Marlin, and just about anything else that ventures into our waters.

Half day trip with Captain Daniel

VERIFIED   January 2, 2019
Started out slow but ended with bunch of sculpin and a tuna encounter. Good experienced crew to fish with.

Half day with Cap. Ivan

VERIFIED   July 16, 2017
Ivan was great, but when I charter a private boat in the ocean, I expect to catch something bigger than a couple of pounds!...
