What a sight to see. Took a flight out of Broome with Kimberley aviation which to us over the falls and circled a couple of times. Just. Unreal to witness the forces of Mother Nature and what she can really do. Awesome pictures and memories to last a life time.

This tour is amazing the flight enables you to view the spectacular Kimberley coast and the Bucaneer Archipelago from the comfort of the seaplane. Landing on Talbot Bay is amazing and the House Boat is beautiful. The experience of riding through the Falls is a thrill of a lifetime. Just love love love this your.

we flew with Kimberley Aviation to this attraction as part of a tour which included Cape Leveque and Cygnet Bay. We observed the falls from the air and quite spectacular the pilot gave enough opportunity to appreciate the falls and take photos

THE Total Thrill Day! From the float plane flight to the boat rides over the falls and the tasty BBQ Barramundi lunch, this is an amazingly wonderful trip. A MUST do trip worth every cent

It's hard to describe the feeling of being stationary in the jet boat with 60km per hour of water flowing past us. The whole day was amazing with the seaplane team but jet boating through the falls was just the best. Great to see that something like this is a accessible to the public. Worth every cent!!

We stayed at Derby and flew up to horizontal falls they magnificent and the flying to horizontal falls was very picturesque this one was one I wanted to do on my bucket list and I wasn't disappointed well worth the money. I highly recommend the helicopter flight as well while there.

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
