ABOUT THE COMPANY
Family Owned and Operated


Being a small family owned business and traveling anglers ourselves we understand the difference that personal service, sincerity and genuine passion can make towards having the best fishing experience.

Myself, son Guy, Paddy and crew can think of nothing better than working and playing on the sea and the challenge of hunting big fish! Sharing these special adventures with anglers from all around the world makes it even more fun and our family has gained many life long international friendships.

We are also very flexible during our cruises and can easily switch from hunting marlin or targeting light tackle world record Kingfish to exploring an island or diving for fresh scallops or crayfish for dinner.



Saltshaker is able to organise the processing, smoking and delivery of your catch and to enable you to show off your catch, we are also able to get it mounted, on request.

Below are a few photos from over the years of myself, crew and the boys.
