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.

Fantastic BBQ Barra lunch (the best fish we ate while in the Kimberley). The jet boat rides through the waterfalls were nothing short of mind blowing!! Still can't... More

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

All staff members were extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accommodating. This is a must do trip when in the Kimberley's and... 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
