The Experience

Take flight with Breton Air and our in-house fishing guide for an unforgettable fly-fishing experience on the world-famous Margaree River.

Depart Cabot for an exhilarating twenty minute helicopter ride over the Cape Breton Highlands and into the Margaree Valley before descending onto a gravel riverbed. You will spend two hours on the river with our knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced guide for the sought-afer Atlantic Salmon, which average 12-15 lbs, reaching up to 35 lbs.

Besides Atlantic Salmon, the Margaree River is also home to trout (Speckled, Brown) and Striped Bass, which can be found in abundance.

The trusted Helicopter Service provider for industry leaders

Matt and his helicopter service was outstanding. Went to Nova Scotia for a golf trip with my dad, brother, and best friend... and flew a couple of different days to various resorts. Matt's communication was excellent and [he] was a safe and expert pilot. We'll be back!!

These guys are true professionals and I highly recommend their business to anyone. Cape Breton from the air is much different than the view from a car and these guys can give the best view while having the experience to back it up. Highly recommended.
