Darwin-based HeliFish experiences provide unmatched access to remote, permit-only ﬁshing locations. Spend 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 the popular full-day HeliFish Pub Crawl Combo where you can celebrate catching the big one with a cold one!
Full Day Heliﬁsh: The full day Heliﬁsh focuses on the abundant ﬂoodplains of the Daly River region as well as the coastal creeks, estuaries and striking red cliﬀs area of Anson Bay. The scale and remoteness of these areas means trips rarely come across others and the ﬁsh catches are consistently high with a great variety. More clients have reeled in their bucket-list “metery” on this trip than on any other.
The trip includes all ﬁshing equipment, professional helicopter pilot / ﬁshing guide, lunch, cold boiled water and soft drinks. It is approximately 2 hours ﬂying, 6 hours ﬁshing and 5 locations.

Half Day Heliﬁsh: The half day HeliFish focuses on ﬁshing hot-spots to the North East of Darwin. Habitats visited include the isolated coastline, rivers and abundant estuaries of Cape Hotham, plus the billabongs, barrages and seasonal ﬂoodplains in permit only areas of the Mary River and Djukbinj National Park regions.
