Captain
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.
