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.

Hubby and I were excited to be finally heading to Cape Leveque! On our bucket list, along with our trip to Broome, this day has and will continue to stay in memories forever.

I've had the good fortune to see great sights like Niagara Falls, Grand Conyon and experience the beautiful isolation of Central Australia, so I found Horizontal Falls a bit underwhelming. The phenomenon is about water being at two levels because of the rising or falling tide, but at the first location it was pretty level and although at the second... More

The full day tour is outstanding! And this company is beyond outstanding. At first look the trip seems pricey, especially for a family of five, but I tell you truly, it is worth every cent. We had an early pick up in Broome and then about 40 minutes by sea plane hop out to Talbot bay. The close pass to... More

We booked in for the half day early morning session. Picked up at 5.30am taken to the airport where we met our pilot Jeremy and flown to the horizontal falls area.

This is a long morning out, pick up from hotel 5:30am (go in the morning otherwise too hot in the afternoon), returning at 11:30am. Never been on a seaplane before, found it a bit cramped (try and score the seat at the back more legroom), stunning views, the pilot swooped here and there whenever there was something to look at,...

Like most things in Broome, it's expensive but well worth it. We were very impressed by how professionally the experience was operated and the set up at the falls is quite remarkable. We personally weren't that interested in the shark feeding but I can see that they're value adding to the day. The scenery is amazing and leaves you in... More
