HeliFish

Our Darwin-based HeliFishing experiences provide unmatched access to remote, permit-only fishing locations, spending less time travelling and more time fishing while witnessing some spectacular Top End landscapes and wildlife along the way.

Choose between Half Day HeliFish, Full Day HeliFish, or our popular full day HeliFish-Pub Crawl Combo where you can celebrate catching the big one, with a cold one!

Custom designed multi-day fishing adventures are also available including fishing lodge accommodation in hot-spots such as the Daly River, Boyne Harbour and Arnhem Land with options to suit all budgets, timeframes and experience levels, including absolute beginners.

The peak barramundi fishing season is traditionally the end of the wet summer months in a period termed the “run-off” (March-April-May) however good numbers and an excellent variety of fish are caught all year round with target species also including salmon and mangrove jack.

HeliFish pilots are trained fishing guides, endorsed by NT Fisheries happily sharing their skills, techniques and local knowledge to give you the best chance of success.  We practice catch (snap a great photo) and release to protect the fish stocks and ecology of the habitats we visit.

Come fishing with HeliFish during the NT’s annual Million Dollar Fish competition (October-March). Catch a $10,000 red-tagged barramundi and we’ll double your money with a bonus $10K!

THE HELIFISH DIFFERENCE

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.

Helicopters provide fantastic manoeuvrability and are fitted with oversized viewing windows creating a premium scenic flight experience.  Your pilot can easily adjust speed, altitude and direction of travel in response to wildlife sightings or other points of interest.

All guests are supplied with quality headsets fitted with voice activated microphones to enjoy the in-flight commentary and allow conversation directly with your pilot and other passengers.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Your HeliFish experience provides countless photo opportunities. The option of flying with the helicopter doors removed is a safe and common practice ensuring unrestricted viewing, by removing window reflections in your photographs and providing welcome natural air-conditioning in the warmer summer months.
