As well as being aviation professionals, the crew at Coastal Rotors are keen anglers, and they know there’s no better fishing than what you find at Cape York. The size, quantity and diversity of fish here is staggering – some of the species we’ve landed on our heli fishing charters include, but are not limited to, barramundi, mangrove jack, giant trevally, saratoga, coral trout, finger mark, trevally and threadfin salmon.

Where we go is determined by the tides and weather – to maximise your experience and fishing.
