See the moment a chopper rescues boaties off Mornington Island

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has come to the aid of two overdue boaties, as part of a multi-agency search, in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Police tasked the crew shortly after 3:30pm on Sunday after the men's boat hadn't returned when it was expected to.

Crew on board the Australian Maritime Safety Authority's Cairns-based Challenger jet, which was also involved in the search, spotted two people on a beach on Margaret Island.

The AMSA crew quickly relayed the information to the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew, who headed directly to the island.

The Queensland Ambulance Service paramedic assessed both men and found they had no injuries.

It's believed the boat had a flat battery and drifted towards the island.

The two men chose to camp the night on the island, after arranging to have a new battery delivered to them in the morning.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter travelled around 800 kilometres throughout the mission and had to make two stops for fuel.
