HALF DAY HELIFISH
Our half day HeliFish focusses 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. Target Species include Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Salmon and more!
Approximately 1 hour flying, 3 hours fishing & 3 locations
FULL DAY HELIFISH
Our 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 we rarely come across others and the fish stocks are consistently high with great variety. More of our customers have reeled in their bucket-list “metery” in this area than anywhere else we visit.
The scenic flying in this region is visually spectacular! We overfly extensive river systems, vast floodplains, wetlands, billabongs and long stretches of deserted white sandy beaches – and we can fish them all!
Approximately 2 hours flying, 6 hours fishing & 5 locations
HELIFISH PUB CRAWL COMBO
This tour combines two of the Top Ends favourite pastimes… fishing and time at the pub with our mates! Spend the morning (3 hours) fishing our half-day sites followed by an additional 3 hours shared across 3 unique Top End Pubs. Nirvana? We think so. Pubs visited include Goat Island Lodge ,Crab Claw Island Resort and the Noonamah Tavern. Drinks and lunch are pay as you go.
Approximately 2 hours flying, 3 hours fishing, 3 locations & 3 hours across 3 outback pubs!
