The flow of this water through these gaps just can not keep up with the rate of the tide rising or falling. This in turn creates an amazing waterfall effect as the water rushes through and then down to the lower levels on the other side of the ridgelines. Not long after the process is reversed and it is repeated again in the opposite direction.It is believed that many billions of years ago there may have been only a small crack between the ridgelines that over the years became larger and larger due to erosion and made gaps of between nine and twenty three metres which created this amazing place call Horizontal Waterfalls. « less

Did the half-day trip with my family. Flew out bright and early, with some of the most sweeping views Broome has to offer. Landed next to a pontoon, jumped off and had some breakky. Then went onto a boat to go through the falls. The boat experience was mildly exhilarating, then again the trip did have elderly members on it.... More

What a great experience, stunning scenery, great facilities and friendly helpful staff. Thoroughly recommend these guys and would suggest you make it a priority to do when in the north west. Opportunity to go through the falls a number of times and you do it on the incoming and outgoing tides. Plane flight in was great, awesome to get another... More

Glad we did the half day tour as I think the full day would have been a bit long. We were picked up around 5.30am from our accommodation then met at the airport by our pilot. The seaplane circled over the scenic Horizontal Falls before the smoothest landing ever on Talbot Bay. Unfortunately it was too dangerous to go through... More

Agree wholeheartedly with the other reviews. Best day ever. All extremely organised and safe, from pickup to the magnificent flight, to jetboat ride through the falls, then breakfast followed by shark feeding and an informative boat ride through Cyclone Creek. Well worth the effort and the price

Wow factor plus! This trip lived up to all the hype and more. The staff were excellent in terms of creating a relaxed unhurried day whilst ensuring all needs were catered for. The trip is a great mix of experiences ranging from adrenaline charged fast boat ride, incomparable access to unspoiled nature experiences, history of the area (pearl farming) and... More

This was truly an amazing experience, flying from Broome to the Horizontal falls in the Kimberly and landing on the water in one of the most amazing places, greeted by the staff and transported through the falls on jet boats through the 12 meter tides was an adrenaline buzz. We were then treated to an out back BBQ of the... More

This is a fabulous adventure that has to be experienced to be really appreciated. We chose the overnight trip from Derby which we enjoyed immensely. From the first greeting by the pilot to the last goodbye the next day, the staff make it a memorable experience. Everything runs like clockwork but you never feel rushed. Lots of time to relax...
