Blair Olsen, Captain

Captain Blair has owned and operated Waypoint out of the Santa Cruz harbor since 1996. He has spent the last two decades as a weekend warrior - hauling in loads of salmon, rock fish, tuna, and crab with his wife, Margie, three kids and various family dogs. He decided to start Waypoint Sportfishing with his son, Cody, to share his passion for fishing in the Monterey Bay with visitors who want a family-friendly fishing experience. The condition of the vessels and overall experience are a source of pride for Blair, who's charter responsibilities include driving the boat, checking the radio for the hot bite, and general entertainment.
