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

Some girlfriends and I spend a couple of days out at the Horizontal Falls - it was without a doubt, the best 3 days of my life! The whole experience was faultless! The flight out to the falls on the seaplane was insane! Incredibly scenic and spectacular with out compromising comfort or safety. These guys take their safety very seriously!... More

The Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventure Tour is hands down one of my BEST travel experiences. The seaplane trip was spectacular, the activities organised by the staff were fantastic and the scenery of the falls and talbot bay was breathtaking. All staff members were extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accommodating. This is a must do trip when in the Kimberley's and... More

I booked a morning half day tour with Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures, best experience I have ever had. I'm a Broome local and this is a must do tour! Staff are amazing and have great knowledge of the surroundings. The boat trip through the falls was brilliant, and loved the shark cage! I highly recommend this tour and will be... More

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
