The Horizontal Falls are a fast-moving tidal flow through two narrow, closely aligned gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach 10 metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge. Travelling by land, air and sea - Horizontal Falls offers full and half day tours to experience this natural phenomenon.

The most amazing day. So well organized by super friendly staff and well maintained equipment. The whole day was awesome and worth every penny. As an old pilot, I appreciated the skills of our pilot, who went out of his way to make the trip a memorable one. Congratulations to the company and staff .

From the 5.30am pickup to the delivery home we had a great day. The seaplane flight was amazing, the scenes thoroughly unforgettable. The boat through the falls again amazing and driver thoroughly professional and fun. An amazing natural phenomena. This company has done everything very well from the staff to the catering they leave nothing out.
