What a great experience. Our tour guide gave us a great insight to the area and took us to some great spots. Not many fish but didn't matter at all. Best thing we did in Darwin.

My husband and I went helifishing and it was a fantastic day out. Our guide Tim was great, with plenty of gear and lots of local knowledge. He flew us to some amazing places, so we got to see plenty of the local wildlife, crocs, wild pigs, water buffalo and bird life, and the good thing was my hubby caught... More

Even though we didn't catch fish, not through lack of trying though - we had the best time. The guide/pilot was extremely professional. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting to see remote fishing in Australia and especially the Top End.

Thank you for reviewing the tour and it is good that the experience was great even though the Barra were not cooperative on your day out. It is disappointing when they are off the bite but it is one aspect of fishing that we just have no control over I'm afraid. Best time for the barra fishing is usually during... More

One of the best days I have ever experienced.... Tim our tour guide was fantastic with his knowledge of the area. Truly professional, safety always a priority.... The experience of catching a Barra out in the wild with crocs everywhere is not to be missed.... Worth every single cent and I can now tick off my bucket list!

Helifish is a once in a Life time experience. From the time I booked until we arrived back at the Airstrip, this experience is second to none. Mark's email communication before the trip was great. We had to have 2 Helicopters for our family of four, 2 adults, and two 17 year olds.. Tim and Ben were our pilots and... More

A great experience. Didn't catch much, the three of us only managed 3 between us, but one was a whopper of a barra. No probs, the run off was not what it should have been, but a terrific day out. Highly recommended.

Worth every cent! Caught Barramundi on a Monday! You never go out fishing expecting a catch and we caught more than we bargained for. The landscape you get to see and the wildlife is amazing. Tim our tour guide was great, knew a lot about the area and was great at setting up my rod. Would definitely go back!

Had a great day with our guide Ryan who has a wealth of local knowledge in regards to the fishing and landscape we travelled in. A great professional chopper pilot also. Managed to catch a handful of really good size Barra to go with it. Could not ask for anymore from these guys and highly recommend it to anyone thinking... More
