Just Salt

Rose Burn, Chandhanee Magu
Malé, Maldives

Captain Ismail welcomes you aboard the Just Salt for a Maldives fishing charter in the pristine waters around Male. Join him and enjoy hunting the big game fish that roam below while making memories to last a lifetime!

The Just Salt is a 20’ Offshore Yard powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots and a full-featured center console, this vessel can take you anywhere you wish to explore. The spacious deck seats four passengers comfortably, with plenty of space for your tackle and your catch.

Running this boat is an experienced crew, led by Captain Ismail Didi. His team includes three other local captains, each with years of experience and intimate knowledge of these waters. They will combine their local knowledge with advanced fishing technology to bring you the best of Male’s big game fishing.

These waters are abundant with small baitfish, drawing big game species close to shore. This means you won’t have to travel far before hooking into Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Giant Trevally, Yellowfin Tuna—or even Marlin.

Come aboard for a few hours and get a taste of the adventure, or spend a full day on the waves and experience big game fishing to the fullest. With plenty of fish all around the island, your trip might take you up to 20 miles offshore depending on the conditions and the location of your target species.

To experience local fishing even further, the crew can take you night fishing on the nearshore reefs. You will reel in some of the most vibrant and delicious fish of the Maldives on this trip, including various kinds of Snapper, Grouper, and Seabass. You can ask the crew to cook your catch for an additional fee.

Just Salt fishing charters include Daiwa fishing gear and bait. The crew can provide pickup service from nearby locations upon request (a fee may apply depending on the distance).

So what are you waiting for? Drop everything and come aboard for your next big game fishing adventure!

This is my first time to do some night fishing in Male. The boat is not so big, but enough for my friend and I. The Captain and his crew were very nice and took us to some very good spots and it was really a very productive fishing trip.

A holiday at the Maldives was a great idea. Before I traveled to the Maldives i got an idea, i wanted to try fishing in one of the most fantastic fishing places in the world, but I did’t order any kind of trip before i was on the maldives. The hotel I was staying at was offering different kinds of experiences. One of them was water sports. We tried water sport and it was fun, but the crew wasn’t as professional as we expected, and later we found out, that it was the same crew who organized the fishing trips, so i decided to find something else, and the result was the Just salt crew. The water sport crew was a lot cheeper, but there was no doubt in my mind, that the just salt crew was worth the money. The crew was great. They were friendly and helpful. We went for some trolling and some jigging, but we did’t really have any luck with us. We caught one little grouper in 6 hours, but after the 6 hours we kept on fishing. It almost felt like the crew did’t want to go back to the harbor. It paid of, and i caught a nice red snapper nearly one hour overtime. After i caught the fish, the crew decided to try a bit more in the area, and after some time we decided to go back in again.
Overall it was a nice trip, it had a great and professional crew, and the boat wasn’t big but it was good. The nature is fantastic, and just salt is absolutely worth the money. I hope i get to go back sometime, and i am sure that i will pick just salt once again, and hopefully try the big game fishing.

Firaz (captain), and Keke (mate), fought lousy weather for hours to show up, on time, for our 6:00 am rendezvous on Eriyadu.
Conditions went from bad to worse, but Firaz put us on to fish, lots of grouper jigging, and a nice wahoo, trolling on our way to lunch.
The boys did all they could to make this a good day, and were not watching the clock, despite the long and arduous trip facing them back to Malé.
