Just Salt

Rose Burn, Chandhanee Magu
Malé, Maldives

Captain Ismail welcomes you aboard the Just Salt, where together you will sail the pristine waters around Male, and hunt for the big game fish that roam below.

Although it is a small boat, the Just Salt is built in a big way, and includes a fully featured center console that can take you anywhere you wish to explore. The spacious deck comfortably seats six people, and allows plenty of space for both equipment and fish. The boat is topped off with a 100HP Yamaha four stroke engine for the ultimate in reliability, efficiency and performance, making it perfect for a great fishing experience.

Whether you embark on the half or full day trip, the Just Salt will take you on an unforgettable Big Game adventure: try a taste of the smaller but rewarding Wahoo, the unbelievably powerful and fast moving Dorado, the middle weight Yellowfin Tuna or The Ultimate Big Game prize - the Marlin! The Maldives’ waters are abundant in small bait fish, which in turn attract the bigger game fish very close to the shore. With plenty of fish all around the island, charters can travel up to 20 miles out to sea depending on the conditions and the location of the target species.

The company is made up of Captain Ismail and three other local captains. With years of experience and knowledge of the surrounding waters, and with the addition of fish finders, they will get you to where the fish are. So what are you waiting for? DROP EVERYTHING, LET’S GO FISHING!

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.

The captain and crew were awesome, good fun and chatty. They had great english as well so that was great. The boat was incredible. The equipment was all in very good condition. However, we did not catch any fish at all or have any bites. Was a little disappointed with that considering the price you pay however, that is what fishing is about. You win some, you lose some. All in all, fun experience.
