Going in early November means it's the end of the Dry, but not quite yet the Wet. So the boats that go through the Falls were no longer running. Only flights. But well worth it!

We were blown away by the power of the water flowing through the falls.. the seaplane flight in was breath taking with an awesome landing.. great breakfast amongst the beautiful scenery and an amazing group of young people running the show.. well done..

Great flight over the wilderness to Horizontal Falls which were quite spectacular from the air. Then you get to drive through the Falls on a speed boat! The food for lunch was excellent - the best crispy skinned barramundi I've eaten!

We did this trip on the second last day it was operating for the season and only the half day option was available. However we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience including the seaplane landing/takeoff, fast boat rides through the falls and having breakfast on the pontoon. The Horizontal Falls and surrounding area in Talbot Bay was beautiful with sensational colours.... More

On arrival we were served a delicious breakfast before the trip thru the Falls . We especially enjoyed the flight back flying low over the Buccaneer Archipelago. The scenery was so beautiful... More

We did the Horizontal Falls Seaplane adventure at the end of October. Actually it was the second last day it was operating for the season and I am so glad we did! The falls themselves were breathtakingly beautiful both from the air and in the boat ride through them. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the bus driver... More

We did this trip on the 27th June our 50th wedding anniversary. It was such an awesome experience, right from the 30 min seaplane trip out and back over the amazing Buchaneer archipelago. The many trips we did through the thrilling falls, the cruise around Talbot Bay, dinner with the 16 other overnight guests and the staff with all their... More

Amazing experience! I've done a lot of adventurous things in my time and this is up there with the best! Great team of people who will take good care of you from your flight to/from the Horizontal Falls (with fantastic views of the islands in the archipelago) to your incredible ride on the jet boat. They cook up a delicious... More
