Heli Fishing

A helicopter transfer is the best way to access pristine forest, remote rivers and the hills of Otago and the West Coast. Here you can find some of the best fly fishing in New Zealand. We offer drop-off / pick-ups or all day charter options, depending on your heli fishing requirements.

Full day charters allow you the flexibility to easily relocate if you want to try somewhere new while drop-off / pick-up options can be more economical.

We can also recommend qualified local guides to help enhance your trip.

Wanaka Fishing Charters

We have Department of Conservation concessions to land at a number of suitable rivers for great trout and salmon fly fishing.  

Whilst we are more than happy to drop you off on your own we do highly recommend taking a fishing guide with you to get the most of your fishing experience.
