Hunting & Fishing

A passion for hunting, fishing, and the outdoors

The HeliServices.NZ team are passionate about hunting, fishing, and the outdoors. Many of our pilots, ground crew, and guides have local hunting and fishing experience and are happy to share their knowledge with you.

HeliServices.NZ can fly you to remote and spectacular locations in New Zealand’s South Island to fish from our pristine rivers and coastlines and hunt the various introduced species that are found here, such as Himalayan Tahr, Chamois and Red Deer.

Customised trips to suit your needs and requirements

We customise every trip to suit your needs and requirements, and also offer guided trips from our Haast base. If you’re a keen angler, we can land you in some of the best trout fishing spots in New Zealand’s South Island, or you could spend a morning or evening heli-fishing some of our remote beaches.

For hunters, the West Coast of the South Island is renowned for its abundance of Himalayan Tahr, Red Deer, and Chamois and the best access into the alpine areas of the West Coast and the Southern Alps is by helicopter.

The Haast region has a temperate climate so hunting is available all year round from our Haast flight office. With an abundance of camping huts available, you can spend a day, a week, or longer hunting and fishing in the spectacular regions of the South Island.

Huts are available to book through the Department of Conservation (DOC), and we have satellite communication devices available for hire. Learn more about the species in our area and enquire about your next hunting/fishing trip.

Fishing Packages

Please note: HeliServices.NZ supports and promotes safe and lawful hunting practices and we work with DOC to ensure that all regulations and laws are complied with. You require one or more permits to hunt in New Zealand on public conservation land. If you are unsure about what permits and permissions are required, please visit the DOC website
The hunting of most native New Zealand wildlife is prohibited. Most native species are protected under the Wildlife Act (1953) and the maximum penalty for killing protected wildlife is a NZ$100,000 fine and up to a year in jail. Please leave our native wildlife for everyone to see and enjoy.
