We booked a full day tour and can't say what part of the tour was the best. Seaplane flight, swimming with the sharks, fast boat through horizontal falls, aquatic culture or pearl farm. Every one different but wonderful. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Can't recommend this enough.

Booked our tour 8 months (birthday present, we had organised trip around this tour) in advance the week before received a phone call saying we will be picking you up tomorrow.
In all the correspondence the the date was changed.
The error was by the company. I confirmed the email so my fault also ( read thoroughly)
They offered 3 options
Do your seperately (6 people)
Or 4 days later after another activity we had organised 8 months previously
Or refund

The person I spoke to said- it is as much your mistake as ours.
I asked if they could ask the other people that had booked the same date If they could change was told no as they had booked and confirmed.

I would recommend the tour as the people doing the tour are fantastic. As for admin side, very disappointed and I would not be confident to recommend.

Our exhilarating Horizontal Falls experience is something we will be talking about for years to come...

This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Broome. The weather was perfect and with help from the staff at the Broome visitor centre, i was able to pick the right day for the best tide.
The flight to and from Cockatoo Island was great and extremely informative thanks to Yindi our pilot.
The day on the boat was amazing. On the way to the falls we stopped at some amazing places. Gabby, who was our guide for the day, is extremely knowledgeable about the area and Flip (Trevor) our skipper navigated the waters and the falls like a pro.
I highly recommend doing this tour with Go Horizontal Falls.

Hi guys
Just like to give you some feedback from the trip. Breakfast. I think there was a dietary offer. However I was surprised that it consisted of pretty much just fried items. My wife missed out on the egg type quiche which she shared mine. Water, coffee tea no Juices or fruit offer so very much on the unhealthy side. Nice flight but only able to go through one gorge due to tide levels. Could have a tea or instant coffee with cheap pair of biscuits on offer. Lunch of 3 salads and fish was nice. Bread roll also. No desert or fruit on offer. I was expecting for a minimal $3 cost extra a soft drink, beer or small glass of wine. After the shark show taken on a 1 hot in the sun hour trip looking basically at the colourful rocks and searching for a well hidden crocodile. Very hot out in the sun. The 2 crew generally under shade. Not sure why we did not get to pass through the second gorge as tide had levelled out. I was expecting to pass through at least 2 gorges and expect most others were. We arrived back at the mooring and were told to wait at the bar entertaining area but not upstairs. I asked for a tea or coffee but advised this not possible as upstairs being prepared for overnight group. However there was plenty of space where we waited 20 minutes for the plane to arrive and only had access to a cold water container. I think it would have been nice to have had the schedule include a 15 minute coffee break. It seemed we were being treated as part of a conveyor belt. In and out next group here now. Staff levels good but a bit tedious with the "How was that, it's lovely etc" comments instead of offering a bit more hospitality as we had paid $950.
We recently did a 3hr whale trip for $75. Coffee tea 4 fruit small muffins on offer on boarding. When heading back to port tea/coffee and cheese bacon rolls on offer. All in 3hrs 9-midday. That was good hospitality and made you feel good and unfortunately not what we got from your tour. I would love to get your opinion.
Regards
Les

FYI
This is the most expensive 1 day tour I have come across. For $950 many tours can be done. I sent the above email to the general email company address a week ago, advised it would be passed on to management. No response unfortunately. It certainly was an unforgetable experience being treated as a cash cow. Anyway they got our money but very disappointing that Australian companies have little regard to customer service and just about making big $s

Hi Les, We think you might be reviewing the wrong company. We only offer a full day tour flying from Broome to Cockatoo Island and then transferring to our boat for a 4-5 hour cruise through the Buccaneer Archipelago and is $880 pp. We don't use seaplanes or have a shark show. Thanks

Excellent trip from beginning to end. The crew, from pilot to bus drivers to the bar staff at Cockatoo island were professional and attentive Certainly the boat crew were very attentive, experienced and provided interesting information. Although at times, it seemed a little rehearsed, that is part of being professional in the tourist industry. The locations are awesome in the true sense of the word.

Although it may seem expensive when researching, it’s worth every cent.

A highlight of the holiday experience. The combination of the flight onto Cockatoo Island and the boat trip to the falls gave an expansive spectacular view of some of the magnificent Kimberly scenery. What stood out was the in depth knowledge and friendly personal engagement of the tour staff with frequent stop-offs to look at mining history, wildlife or to explain the local topography. Thanks to Jake, Trevor and Gabby. A beer at the Iron Ore Bar on was a relaxing finish before the return flight.
Highly recommended.

This tour has everything. It's adventure, excitement, fun, pleasure, relaxation, exhilaration, thrills all in one day. But more than that. We had a great pilot, a great skipper, great tour guides, a fantastic boat, and an enjoyable flight to Cockatoo Island and return via a differential route later in the day. Our guide. Hayley, obviously loves her job and people and especially looked after my wife and I. She also loves rocks and there are many types to be seen as our skipper took us from Island to island in the Buccaneer Archipelago. We saw humpback whales (mum and child) breaching the water as we motored passed the islands. Such excitement. The skipper took his boat to the max as we we through the horizontal falls, very safely but thrilled the passengers. We had a very nice lunch whilst quietly gliding around the mangroves. On the way back to Broome from Cockatoo Island our pilot took us over the falls we had been through and over many parts of the beautiful Buccaneer Archipelago. Our bus driver picked us up and dropped us of at our hotel on time, and having a good sense of humour gave the passengers a lot of laughs. The day was memorable for it's uniqueness and adventure as well as the great people who looked after us.

This was a truly outstanding day. A short 1 hour flight to Cockatoo Island with our delightfully friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, Gabby, ready to start our tour. Interesting stops along the boat cruise with the AWESOME Horizontal Falls awaiting. Lovely lunch onboard whilst gently cruising around the mangroves then fast trip back to welcome cold refreshments before heading back to Broome over the Horizontal Falls. 5 stars does not seem high enough rating. The pilot and the boat captain were also both fantastic with a wonderful manner.

We got off to a great start with our on time pick up and were dropped off into the very capable and knowledgeable hands of our pilot Yindi - what followed was a very smooth and informative flight over the falls and onto cockatoo island. Our skipper Jacob made sure our trip to and from the falls went without a hitch and the pure adrenaline that you feel go through those amazing falls was well and truly worth it. Our fabulous guide Hayley was an absolute fountain of information and made everyone feel so welcome - she knew everyone’s name on the boat by the end of the day 😊

The absolutely stunning Kimberley countryside and the beautiful horizontal falls is definitely worth seeing but I could not speak highly enough of the crew that took us and the absolute joy and pride they take in making it a fantastic day out.
