HeliFish - Full Day Tour

Full Day HeliFish is our signature experience and one of the Top End’s most highly regarded fishing adventures.

Travelling by helicopter allows us to cover large distances in a fraction of the time, accessing multiple remote locations in a single day, many of which can’t be accessed by other means of transport.

The scale and remoteness of the areas visited means we rarely come across others. As a result, the fish stocks are consistently high with great variety increasing your chances of success.

Target species include barramundi, salmon, mangrove jack and more. Every season one or more customers land their bucket-list “metery” on a HeliFish trip.

The habitats we visit stretch from the Cape Hotham and Mary River region (to the north east of Darwin) all the way south to the abundant floodplains, coastal creeks and estuaries of the Daly River and Anson Bay region (refer map below). Where we visit on a particular day will depend on a range of factors including the season, weather / rainfall, tides, recent fishing success and of course our customers’ requests.
