One day tour from Broome. This is an outstanding business with the best possible equipment, experienced and professional staff and all worked together to give us maximum use of our time and an outstanding experience. One of the best days of our lives. Put it one your bucket list, great value for money, a very full well paced day.

This was one of our favourite experiences in the Kimberleys (which is hard to say as there are so many amazing places to see and things to do!). The team at Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures were great and made sure we had plenty of opportunity to take in this incredible phenomenon. It's expensive, but worth every cent.

We did a half day trip,to,the falls. We were collected and taken to airport where we boarded a seaplane. The flight up to Cape Le Veuque was interesting . They fly low enough to enable you to see everything below. We were fortunate enough to,see a pod of whales. We then flew over the Buccaneer Archipelago into thevTalbot River .... More

Horizontal Falls is really something you must see. I went with my Dad whilst he was working for one of their speed-boat companies and it was an amazing experience. The scenery is breathtaking and there aren't any negative things about it, other than if you fly in on a seaplane via Derby (can be a bit scary)

Now THIS is unique! When the very high tide drops in Talbot Bay the massive movement of water that results causes 'horizontal falls' through the narrow gaps in the cliffs. We rode the horizontal falls in a fast turbo-charged boat that bore through the seething water as it raged through the rocks! I thought it was positively perilous and one... More

Our group was the first for the day, leaving Broome by floatplane around 6.00am. Our route was direct to the Falls, where we were transferred to a powerful boat to see the two sets of Horizontal Falls. Absolutely fabulous!! The only disadvantage was the fact that all seats in the boat were on the same level, so photography for the... More

This all day trip including a 4wd bus trip, sea plane flight and boat ride through the Falls was the highlight of our visit to Broome. The food was great and the scenery spectacular. The rides through the Falls were exhilarating and we were pleased to have such an experienced skipper! Try to get in the front of the boat... More

We took a light aircraft ride from Broome and had the most fantastic day, with amazing views of the horizontal falls. This was truly a chance to see some of the most remote and beautiful wilderness on Earth. It's of course expensive compared to most other holiday recreations, but it's worth every dollar. Highly recommended.

We took the day trip from Derby to the Horizontal Falls. It was an amazing experience, flying low over the mudflats surrounding Derby and then over low ranges to Talbot Bay. The plane did a double pass over Horizontal Falls so that passengers on both sides could see the falls before touching down in Talbot Bay. Once on the "House... More
