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.

Our Seaplane Adventure to the Horizontal Falls was an awesome experience, from the wonderful young staff on the House boat to the pilot and jet boat drivers and 4WD guides the day was exciting, full of beautiful scenery and an experience I would thoroughly recommend to anyone seeking a bit of adventure in our beautiful top end.

Had a great time flying up to horizontal falls by sea plane and doing the boat tour through the falls. It was very amusing playing with the Sharks as well in the shark cage. Great staff as well.
