Attraction details
Owner description: Located within Talbot Bay within the Buccaneer Archipelago, The Horizontal Waterfall comes to life through two narrow openings, one on each side of the sandstone ridgelines.When the rising or falling tide occurs, the water banks up on one of these sides of the ridgelines. 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.

Low level seaplane flight weaving through islands and birds eye view of secluded beaches. Pilot Ben provided us with a silky smooth landing. Quite warm on the water so a dip in the meshed in shark pool was welcomed. Great lunch and a fabulous experience jet boat riding the waves of the horizontal falls. The crew out there made us...

This area needs to be more promoted. We flew on the big seaplane across a natural wonderland of islands all uninhabited with no rubbish or debris. Unlike many litter filled islands throughout Asia. Our pilot Steve explained the area all along the flight and performed a text book landing on the water. At the floating oasis we were met by... More

Awesome day had up there. The power of nature blew me away whilst cruising through the falls. Can't wait to go again next year.

We took the float plane out from Broome direct to the bay where the horizontal falls are. Flying low through the cliffs and gorges and on to land on the water. Our pilot Jeremy gave us the smoothest water landing. My first time landing on water!! Wow. The floating city out there is amazing. Jet boats, jet skis, helicopters and... More

We experienced the all day Horizontal Falls tour and it was magic - even the 5.00am start was acceptable! The Cessna Caravan trip to Talbot Bay, home of the Horizontal Falls, is indeed scenic; the power boat rides through and over the Falls is breathtaking; and the return (Cessna to Cape Leveque then four wheel drive bus to Broome) is...

Seaplane flight of just over an hour across pristine islands then landing into a beautiful bay surrounded by high cliffs. Once docked to the shark surrounded pontoons we were greeted and safety briefed by the fabulous young team that live out there. Then we were treated to the best barramundi we've had. Being late October it was pretty warm so... More

Visiting the Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventure was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. To see this floating oasis in the middle of nowhere is beyond words. The scenic helicopter ride over the Horizontal Falls was amazingly beautiful and the ride of the jet boat through the falls was beyond amazing. It is like no other tour... More

picked up early from hotel in Broome. 4 wheel bus/truck to Beagle Bay for coffee and visit to school and church. Onto Cape Leveque for breakfast and swim. Seaplane to the Horizontal Falls and the day there. Seaplane back to Broome. Very well organized, good food and plenty of activities. A must do experience.

I don't normally do the touristy things when I travel but this tour came highly recommended. Fantastic scenic flight across Islands with a smooth water landing. Great thrill riding through the falls on the jet boat. Credit to the organisation.

The early morning start had us landing on the water just in time for breakfast. The landing in through the cliffs and gorges is like something from a James Bond movie. We were greeted like rock stars by the crew out there. What a set up!! It's like a floating city with toys attached. Jet boats, jet skis, fishing boats... More
