Scenic Helicopter Flights. Cape York Peninsula and the Torres Strait Islands is a vast wilderness area, with lots of inaccessible terrain and ‘hidden’ natural attractions, including remote waterfalls, tropical isles and sand cays. While you’ve probably been busy exploring some of this country using the red dirt tracks and trails that criss-cross the landscape, the aerial view is something else altogether. The sheer beauty and depth of blues in the endless sea is outstanding, with the green islands of the Torres Strait below, like stepping stones linking Australia with its most northern neighbour, Papua New Guinea. This is a once in a lifetime experience that you don’t want to miss. Contact our team for more information.
To appreciate the vast wilderness area that is Cape York and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Torres Strait Islands we highly recommend a scenic helicopter flight. The depart daily from Punsand Bay beach and there are a range of options from 10 to 85 minutes flights. All scenic helicopter flights include a fly over of ‘The Tip’ with plenty of time to get amazing photos. Maximum number of guests per flight is 3 and weight restrictions apply.
Heli fishing – it’s a thing – and the pilots are also keen anglers who know some great secret spots around the Cape.
There’s two exclusive heli fishing charters available from Punsand Bay, a half day and full day adventure. Hassle free fishing is ensured with everything provided. They operate 7 days a week and will tailor times to suit your needs. Enquire now for more information.
The quickest and definitely the most scenic way to get from the mainland to nearby Torres Strait Islands, is by helicopter. Taking off from Punsand Bay beach, you can fly to Horn Island or Thursday Island and keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife, as guests and pilots often report seeing an array of animals including crocodiles, manta rays, sea turtles and dugongs. In addition to the islands, we can also arrange heli transfers from Punsand Bay to Bamaga Airport, which connects the Cape with the country.
