Wow.

Totally worth the money but only in a boat - flying over in a helicopter just wouldn't give you any sense of the awesomeness of this natural phenomenon.

Make sure you are sitting down when you look at the price but worth every cent. Was a wonderful day.

The "horizontal falls" are in fact reversible rapids caused by the huge Kimberley tide rushing through a couple of narrow gaps, both as tide comes in and goes out. However, unless you visit at full moon when tides are highest, the rapids may disappoint. The day we visited, it would not even qualify as "white water".

I had some misgivings about this trip particularly the $695 pp price tag from Broome. But I am glad I did it, as it will probably be my last time up this way. We were picked up from The Caravan Park at 8.00am and taken by coach to the Broome airport where we boarded a 12 seater see plane for... More

I loved everything, from the plane trip over the Buccaneer Archipelago, the landing in Talbot Bay, the jet boat ride through the Horizontal Falls, the breakfast at home base, the cruise through Talbot Bay and the return journey home by 4WD. Lunch at Cape Leveque was delicious and served promptly. All the staff was young energetic and very attentive. I... More

FWD to Cape Leveque, Seaplane to houseboat on Talbot Bay and BBQ Barramundi lunch were all very good but the speed boat backwards and forwards through the horizontal falls is something not to be missed. Breakfast at Cape Leveque was a little disappointing. Full day trip is better value than the half day trip but neither is cheap at first... More

The trip via the seaplane was stunning, viewing the mudflats of Derby and the beautiful waterways. The staff were wonderful and the meal was good. The jet boat rides and bay trips were most informative and beautiful. Would not have missed for anything!

Absolutely brilliant! I liked everything except the coming home part. You have to see it to believe it. I cannot recommend Horizontal Falls Sea Plan Adventures enough to give you the best experience of this natural event.

Best 1 day tour I've ever done. Lot of money but I don't think expensive for what we got. When you break it down it's not expensive. It has to be on everyone's bucket list. The whole day was breath taking. Thank you.
