Description: Located within Talbot Bay within the Buccaneer Archipelago, The Horizontal...
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.

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 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...

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.

Early morning start to fly out in the seaplane. Flew over some of Australia's last untouched islands before the touchdown on water into the waterfall bay. Nothing short of spectacular surrounds while we had breakfast. The swim with the sharks was scary at first but then great fun once in the cage. Last but defiantly not least the jet boat... More

Has to be one of the most spectacular and beautiful days spent while staying at Cable Beach. Wonderful pilot and staff up at the Falls. The flight up is stunning and the jet boat ride through the falls exhilarating. So much fun! Definitely put it on your bucket list. A very memorable day.

The seaplane flight to the falls across the amazing islands made us realise we live in the best country. The seaplane landing was incredible. We saw crocs, turtles and whales. The jet boat ride was awesome. Thanks to all the crew for making us feel so welcome.

We did the half day tour. The speed boat road through the falls was fantastic. Then cruising around after was just so serene . Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were so friendly. We would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Broome. Thank you to all at Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures for the most enjoyable tour.
