Our 1/2 day trip is an affordable option for those that may be time restricted, and still wanting to experience our fantastic Helifish Tours. Take your pick from a morning tour departing at 7:30 am and returning 11:30 am or the afternoon tour departing 12:30 pm and returning 4:30 pm, whichever suits your schedule or liking.
Tour duration is 4 hours so you will get approximately 3 hours fishing, and 1 hour flight time to and from our remote Helifishing spots. Flying out along the isolated coastline, rivers, or billabongs to the east of Darwin, not only will you have amazing flood plain views, chances are you will also see some of the amazing local wildlife.
Our target fish is the ever elusive and exciting Barramundi, with Mangrove Jack, Salmon and other species often caught. We fish in creeks and estuaries near the coast, from banks offering good access and crocodile safety
