Loved every minute of this adventure. Best doing the drive first then fly back rather than the other way round. A very, very professional operation that will not disappoint. Yet still a very warm , friendly and personal feel. Well worth the cost and you will learn a lot as well as having a unique experience that will be very... More

What a trip, the amphibian plane took us over the falls a couple of times before we landed, Keesha was there to meet the plane and made us all welcome. After afternoon tea we were taken out to the Falls on a boat that had 3 x 300hp motors - a lot of power, which was needed as the tide... More

We were collected at 11.30 and driven to the airport where we boarded a seaplane and took off to Horizontal Falls via Cape Leveque. Great views for the duration including spotting a couple of whales in the sea pointed out by the pilot. The plane landed at Talbot Bay where we watched some sharks get fed. Our lunch was then...

One of 2 highlights of our 8 day trip to Broome. We did a full day tour, beginning with the seaplane. Taking off in the early morning was just magical. Can thoroughly recommend doing the flight first, as opposed to the truck first. The rest of the day was just as amazing... a jetboat ride up thru cyclone bay (so... More

Absolutely worth every cent from the moment you are picked up from your accommodation to when you are dropped. Staff were excellent, enthusiastic & well organised. We just kept looking at each other saying are we seriously here doing this amazing tour!

Top service from pickup at 0530 with a very considerate and friendly bus driver to delivery back at our accommodation by Cob (driver) it was service all the way. At the... More

We did the overnight Horizontal Falls trip from Derby. There's no getting around it, the trip is expensive, but once you see the logistics and scale of the operation you can see why- the running costs would be huge. We were driven to Derby airport and taken by seaplane to the pontoon/houseboat in Talbot Bay. It was exciting landing on... More

We choice to do the full day tour from Broome and we thought the flights were great but the rest of the tour seems to be filler. The sharks we swam with were tame, the snorkel equipment we used was old and falling apart. We took two rides up the nearby river, to the same spot only on different boats.... More
