Salty Sea-Dogs is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The quest is started by speaking with Captain Wayfinder. He will ask that a special type of void salts, Fine-Cut Void Salts, be retrieved. As this is a radiant quest, locations will vary. See Fine-Cut Void Salts for details.

If the Dragonborn finds the Fine-Cut Void Salts before speaking with Captain Wayfinder, then the quest will be started immediately. See the Bugs section for information on how to avoid problems if this happens.

Once they are retrieved, speaking to Captain Wayfinder completes the quest. He will give the Dragonborn 1500 or 1250 GoldIcon as a reward.
