Overview
Darwin’s coastal waters are a haven for diverse fish species like barramundi, mangrove jack, and salmon—but knowing where the shoals will appear can be tricky. On this fishing tour, take to the skies and watch for the shoals from the air. With lunch and your fishing equipment included, cast your line for the catch of the day. You’ll also have time for a scenic flight over Litchfield National Park.

This tour is one of the best tours we have ever done! Just my partner and I and the chopper pilot Jeremy. We flew to three different places to fish for Barra and literally lost count of how many we caught. The scenery was spectacular and I can only imagine how it may be even better during the wet season. We are already thinking of a way to get back up to Darwin for the Barra run off season so we can go again. Jeremy was brilliant, easy going and a very capable pilot and fisherman. You must do this tour!!

A full day helifishing tour with Simon as our guide was so much more than we could ever have expected. The scenery from the helicopter was amazing. Simon was so knowledgeable and even looped around to show us sharks, wild boar and buffalo. The scenery was simply spectacular and this alone would be worth the trip. But then we got on to fishing. Some of the most remote places to fish. So quiet and peaceful. I am not a fisher person, but Simon helped me learn to cast and I had a ball. My husband caught and landed quite a few Barra and was smiling from ear to ear. Yummy lunch in the shade and endless cold water. Finishing the day with a stop at a remote bar for a much needed beer. We left in awe of how incredible the day was, truly a once in a lifetime trip. Thank you Simon and the team at Helifish Darwin. This adventure is something we will be talking about for years to come.

Plenty of Barra to catch and the most incredible experience! Simon the guide was skilled and went above and beyond to make our day great, taking us to incredible and varied fishing locations. We caught heaps of decent sized Barra and saw plenty of wildlife, a dingo, birds, crocs, wild pigs, horses and water buffalo. Day did not disappoint and the scenic helicopter ride was as spectacular as the fishing!! Will definitely go again.
