We did the full day tour from Broome. Combined a heap of amazing experiences in just one day. Emma was a fantastic pilot and landing on the water near the falls was a highlight for me.

Picked up from our accommodation at 05.25, noting that this is dictated by the timing of the tides. Great flight out and exciting sea landing coming in via a twisting valley. Tea and fruit juice on arrival. Then we had an opportunity to go in...More

Did the tour out of Broome - bus up and fly back. Way to go!. Staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. Well worth the money. You get to see the horizontal waterfall in a boat and drive through it.

No tours in the Wet Season. I’d check with them and book, as some tours are booked out ahead of time. Also note that there are different durations of tours - overnight allows you to see both incoming and outgoing tides.
