Guided Heli-fishing – Great Barrier Island or Coromandel
From $950pp when you book an exclusive group of 5 or $995 when co-ordinated.
If you love fishing and flying, this is the trip for you!
Heletranz is the pioneer of Heli-Fishing—first made famous on Geoff Thomas’s original Snapper Secrets video in the early 1990’s—and has made thousands of fishermen happy over the years!
The Hauraki Gulf and surrounding islands have some of the best fishing in the world, the sub-tidal reefs of the North-East Coastline and Great Barrier have a rich and diverse marine habitat which supports numerous species of fish including Snapper, Kahawai and Kingfish.
Even when the fishing isn’t that hot, the thrill remains on the faces of all who come with us—no one knows Heli-Fishing as well as Heletranz!
Depart from our Heliport in Albany, Auckland and head out to one of our chosen fishing spots, flying over the islands of the Hauraki Gulf—sometimes seeing dolphins, whales, sting-rays—with a bird’s eye view of the stunning scenery making up the land and seascape below.
We provide all the fishing equipment required for the day including: rods, reels, tackle and bait.
Heletranz uses top quality spinning reels and 10ft graphite rods. The helicopter and experienced, knowledgeable pilot stay with you as your guide throughout the trip.
Bottled water and a fisherman’s lunch are included in the cost—bring a few beers to complement if you like.
After four hours of ‘lines in the water’ fishing, we begin wrapping up and fly back to our base at Heletranz. Total trip time approximately 5-6 hours.
For exclusive groups, we can arrange to break the day with a restaurant meal on Great Barrier or Waiheke Island after the fishing, or a Pub stop where you can relax and re-live the day’s wins and losses or share past fishing tales.
