About Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures
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.

Horizontal Falls Half-Day Tour from Broome

In the Buccaneer Archipelago, tides change so dramatically that they race through narrow gorges at up to 35 mph (56 kph), creating a horizontal waterfall. Experience this natural phenomenon, which can only be reached by boat or plane, on a classic turbo-prop seaplane. Feel the adrenaline rush as your speedboat powers through the falls, enjoy a hot meal on board, and cruise the bays and creeks. Tour includes hotel transfers.
