About Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures
The Horizontal Falls are a fast-moving tidal flow through two narrow, closely aligned gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach 10 metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge. Travelling by land, air and sea - Horizontal Falls offers full and half day tours to experience this natural phenomenon.

This trip was exceptional. We had a great day with Ben, our pilot. There was also a personable guy, Jensen, who drove us to the airport. The scenery flying up to Cape Leveque was spectacular. We had the most delicious barramundi lunch at Rauigi’s cafe after landing. The barramundi was served with slaw, fresh salad, and crispy fries. The service was friendly. Soft drinks were included. We were driven to a very picturesque nearby beach afterwards. There were huts with a shower where you could stay cool if you didn’t feel like walking down to the beach. We were each given a Matso ginger beer and souvenir cooler on arrival at the beach. Later, we went back and had some more cold drinks at Rauigi’s before we flew back to Broome. On arroval at Broome airport, we were served glasses of iced tea. A lovely touch. This really is a wonderful trip. It’s described as a half day tour, when in fact you are picked up at 9.30am from your hotel and returned there around 4.30pm. I thought the trip was great value. Ben was a pleasure to have as our pilot. I highly recommend this trip to others.

From on time pickup, safety briefing and takeoff just a great experience, staff friendly professional and client focused, plenty of interesting information about features, spots and landmarks as we flew in, perfect fly thru of falls and other spectacular features, smooth landing on creek . Straight out to the Horizontal Falls in a Jet Boat, fantastic. Breakfast back on the main boat, fish and shark spectacle with option of a swim. Cruise of creek and falls again Overall a great half day tour, do it , this has to be on your bucket list.

This was a tour that really delivered. After a flight over the stunning Buccaneer archipelago we landed on Cockatoo island and spent a wonderful day on the water in a comfortable fast boat. The ride through the Falls was exciting and lived up to expectations. The staff were very friendly Really enjoyed this trip !

This has been on our bucket list for years so my wife and I decided to do it as a joint present for our 35th Wedding Anniversary. So where do I start.............from the hotel pick up to the flight out, the scenery, the commentary, the breakfast, the jet boat through the falls, the shark feeding, the cruise up Cyclone Creek, the magnificent staff, the flight back and the hotel drop off......an absolute 10 out of 5!!! We have travelled the planet quite extensively but this is the best ever and right in our own backyard. It was an awesome adventure and a must do in your lifetime. Big boquets to all the staff at the Horizontal Falls Seaplane. A truly professional operation. Hats off to you all.

I can not fault this trip at all, it was nothing short of spectacular! Our pilot Alex was awesome he flew over the falls so we could take photos from the air. The breakfast in the pontoon was great and the staff were very nice. Brian our skipper was great and allowed for people to take photos from the boat. Although the trip is quite expensive it is well worth it, I can honestly say this was the best trip I’ve ever done. Furthermore, if we visit Broome in the future we would do this trip again. Thanks to seaplane horizontal falls adventure for a truly awesome day. 👌😍
