Prehistoric Bubbles and Nibbles Hovercraft Tour

Broome Hovercraft is a family owned and operated tourism business that has been in the same family for 22 years. We are one of only three commercially operating hovercraft tour companies in the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. Our hovercraft Big Bird is the only one of her type operating in the world today offering a very unique mode of transport. Another unique and awe inspiring component of this tour is visiting Dinosaur Trackways that are fossilised in rock on a secluded beach within Roebuck Bay. Learn about how these dinosaur trackways were formed and why they are still visible today, 120 Million years later. You will enjoy continuous commentary from our pilot, Myles, about a variety of topics from the history of Broome, the evolution of the coastline, the World War 11 Catalina and Dornier Planes that remain within Roebuck Bay. From the information rich commentary to the beauty of the Pindan cliffs against the aqua blue waters, this tour is a must when in Broome.

An amazing experience with knowledgable and friendly guides. A beautifully scenic tour and informative introduction to the Broome dinosaur footprints. Comfortable boat ride during which we were wonderfully looked after whilst learning a great deal about Broome and it's very interesting history. Great for kids and adults. One of our holiday highlights for sure.

The hovercraft is in dry-dock due to COVID so we were on an open boat and got absolutely soaked but loved every minute of it! I did suggest raincoats. The dinosaur footprints are amazing and Miles provides a great presentation on them. We were then spoilt with champers and nibblies while cruising the Dampier Creek before heading back to base for a large cocktail, BBQ and chocolate cake. Bec and Miles really spoil you so it is worth every cent but raincoats, guys, raincoats!

Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed our Dinosaur Adventure Tour. Yep, you guys got wet alright! A combination of the unusual swell and wind direction - Not the norm though.... Although coming into our warmer months, we might try to replicate that tour to cool everyone off :-) Look forward to seeing you next time you are up in Broome. Thanks again for your cheery review, so glad you loved it!

Really disappointed no hovercraft (thanks Covid) but boat trip with Bec and Miles was really thought out well with their commentary throughout and the info on the dinosaur's put together well (at first skeptical) and their teamwork (gotta see their description and depiction of how the suns gravitational pull works!) and keenness to make sure we all enjoyed the trip with a lovely spread of nibbles, making it a memorable part of our trip to Broome, John and Marg

Sadly the hovercraft was ‘covid parked’ and tour was only available by boat. Bec and Miles were really lovely and we enjoyed the tour very much. That said, we did take the tour to specifically see the dinosaur footprints, and was very disappointed that we were taken only to one site. Having already learned a bit at the museum we had expected and hoped for more. Really enjoyable morning though and would recommend this lovely family run business.
