BoSafi Fishing – 36'

BoSafi Fishing operates out of the bustling city of Salmiya, running a wide variety of trips from 4 to 10 hours in length. Captain Salim fishes the local waters, and also offers trips to Kuwait’s numerous islands, for the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

His 36’ Al Kubaisi fishing boat makes for a comfortable, stable, fishing platform and boasts a top speed of 32 knots to make sure you waste no time getting to the best fishing spots. The boat comes equipped with the latest electronics and navigational equipment, and also features outriggers to help tempt in fast-moving species like King and Spanish Mackerel.

Capt. Salim prides himself on offering fun-focused fishing experiences, targeting the huge range of species found in the Persian Gulf. Your main target species are Kingfish, Grouper, and Snapper, and as such you’ll be trolling and bottom fishing to best reel in your catch.

Some of Kuwait’s top destinations are the country’s islands, which string along the Kuwaiti coast, down towards the Saudi border. Known as much for the stunning aquatic beauty as for awesome fishing, these islands make for an amazing day of fishing, swimming, and relaxing on clean sandy beaches.

Captain Salim works as a teacher by profession, but his true passion is for fishing, which he has spent his whole life doing. He loves nothing more than to share his favorite spots and tricks with his clients, and he will put you on catches you would never imagine possible during your time with him.
