Helifishing was absolutely awesome. The two helicopters and the Barra fishing was amazing. The two tour guides Shaun and Ben were brilliant. 60+ Barra

Myself , my two boys and soon to be son in law received this HeliFish tour as a Christmas present.We had our HeliFish tour on 27th December 2017.
We had a fantastic time and our guide Ryan was great. He made us all feel safe and was well informed about fishing ,the country and very good at helping us with our fishing lines. We were all impressed with the knots he made for our lines. Absolutely beautiful scenery we flew over too. We didnt catch the million dollar Barra but we will be back in a few months to do this trip again.
Flying into Litchfield Pub for a few cold beers ended a truly fantastic day out!!

This was just a fun day. Started with barra hand-feeding then a long flight over flood plains to the fishing spots and fishing at multiple fishing spots in the middle of the nature with nobody else around. Saw heaps of local wildlife including crocs of course. This tour is not cheap but worthwhile. Ended the tour with a stop in a local pub. Pretty cool ey...
The pilot was very good, explained a lot and enjoyed the day as we did. Thanks Corby (hope I got the name right...)

My husband and I did the Helefish tour in Darwin to celebrate his 60th Birthday. We had seen it at the boat show and we were hoping it was going to be the highlight of our trip. We were disappointed. The scenery was great but we had a pilot who was not a great guide and left us feeling underwhelmed. This could have been so much better with someone sharing local knowledge and telling us where we were.
I emailed the company on our return and did get a follow up call and an email detailing where we had been but too little too late. An expensive day out and left us flat.
