Early start to get on the seaplane but wow what an experience.. The water pumping through those gaps is hard to describe. I never realize how much untouched beauty we have in our own country. Awesome scenery and we were treated so well by the crew.. An experience not to be missed.

We're not given tide information beforehand. Tide was not in at all! It would be a must see natural wonder in this part of the world.

I can't say enough good things about the Horizontal Falls. We did the half-day seaplane adventure (skip the "shark dive" - it's a major let-down) and it was well worth every penny. Riding through the falls was a thrill in itself but the seaplane ride to and from the Falls back to Broome was an experience I'll never forget. I... More

Just the seaplane flight over all the I uninhabited islands is worth the price. The jet boat ride through the falls is an adrenalin rush and an amazing show of how the tides work. Amazing floating set up out there. Next time we'll stay overnight.

We took friends advice and stayed over night, but you don't have too! BUT you will miss out!! The flight there, the boats navigating the narrow passages through the cliffs, the food, the pontoons, everything about the visit was outstanding. The most outstanding feature was the STAFF! Young people, well informed, courteous, and smiling all the time. Was there a... More

Everything about this day was fantastic. We were picked up at 5.30am from our accommodation, and dropped back at 5.30pm. Long day but fantastic. Drove up and flew back, The staff were amazing, the food was great. The price was fair for the day we had. We live in a great country, and this place proves it.
