About
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.

Bucket list tour
My wife and I and 2 friends took this tour last Monday.
It was not a cheap day but the experience was awesome.
From the moment we were buckled into the seaplane, the adventure got better and better.
Alex was our pilot and I had the good luck to sit in the co pilot seat to and from Cape Leveque landing in Talbot Bay.
Our trip up was a scenic 1 1/2 hours flying over all 3 Aboriginal settlements.
Thank you Alex for sharing your story and knowledge as we flew up and back.
The scenery over the cape and Buccaneer Archipelago was amazing as was our water landing onto Talbot Bay.
Shark feeding, swimming in enclosure beside it and a bbq barramundi lunch and salads were special .
The speedboat trip out and through Horizontal falls was something I couldn’t manage due to a back injury but reports from my wife and friends were very positive.
Staff out on Talbot Bay were incredibly professional and helpful and helped make a day of pure excitement and enjoyment.
Some said it was the scariest thing they ever did... we just loved the experience
If you get the opportunity, just do it

A must do if your in Broome
Picked up from our hotel room at the perfect time of 8:30 by a really friendly guide. Jumped on a “Kimberley air “ plane with Mike as our pilot.
From there the commentating kept us informed (even regular footy updates) for the whole trip. The scenery was spectacular, with Mike banking right and left to allow all passengers to get great photos.
The lunch of fresh fish was delicious and the swimming refreshing.
I would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to see the true Broome. The sites from the air are so much more than what you could ever see from the road.
Big thanks to Kimberley Air and Mike our pilot.

Thanks
Dave and Jo

A Bucket list must !
Apr 2021
Did the half day tour, truely an extraordinary experience. Warm & friendly staff from the point of departure to return - fully informed on all safety procedures. Comfortable flight & a water landing is not an everyday experience for most. The huge pontoon is remarkable and shark feeding was exciting. Lunch was delicious, generous serves of Barra & beautiful salads. Our captain, Brian is a master of his craft. So much fun as we zipped through both falls. Came down from our adrenalin high with a trip to Cyclone Creek and incredible scenery.
Highly recommend a trip to Hori Falls ....... please add this to your bucket list ...

Exhilarating experience.... one of nature's wonders
Did the morning half day tour to Horizontal Falls. Staff are friendly and helpful. The bus pick up was spot on time and delivered to the airport for take-off just as the sun rose on the horizon. Landing on water was an experience that is not to be missed. Feeding the sharks and fish was exciting.
After a quick breakfast it was onto the boat to the Horizontal Falls. The guide was informative and the scenery in the area amazing. Then came the fun bits ... zooming through the two falls. Plenty of picture opportunities and of course the video as you plunge up and down the falls a few times. A nautical roller-coaster.
Bucket list ticked off. Great day, great time, well worth the money.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Everything about our day was first class. From the hotell pick up, to the pilot, the plane ride and view, the shark feedindg, the breakfast and the actual boat ride through the falls was excellent. The staff were friendly, helpful, professional and very informative. We had a great day and the tour was worth every cent.

Absolutely outstanding
Dec 2020
This trip was exceptional. We had a great day with Ben, our pilot. There was also a personable guy, Jensen, who drove us to the airport. The scenery flying up to Cape Leveque was spectacular.

We had the most delicious barramundi lunch at Rauigi’s cafe after landing. The barramundi was served with slaw, fresh salad, and crispy fries. The service was friendly. Soft drinks were included.

We were driven to a very picturesque nearby beach afterwards. There were huts with a shower where you could stay cool if you didn’t feel like walking down to the beach. We were each given a Matso ginger beer and souvenir cooler on arrival at the beach. Later, we went back and had some more cold drinks at Rauigi’s before we flew back to Broome. On arroval at Broome airport, we were served glasses of iced tea. A lovely touch.

This really is a wonderful trip. It’s described as a half day tour, when in fact you are picked up at 9.30am from your hotel and returned there around 4.30pm. I thought the trip was great value. Ben was a pleasure to have as our pilot.

I highly recommend this trip to others.

Nov 2020
From on time pickup, safety briefing and takeoff just a great experience, staff friendly professional and client focused, plenty of interesting information about features, spots and landmarks as we flew in, perfect fly thru of falls and other spectacular features, smooth landing on creek . Straight out to the Horizontal Falls in a Jet Boat, fantastic. Breakfast back on the main boat, fish and shark spectacle with option of a swim. Cruise of creek and falls again Overall a great half day tour, do it , this has to be on your bucket list.

Spectacular and Memorable
Nov 2020
This has been on our bucket list for years so my wife and I decided to do it as a joint present for our 35th Wedding Anniversary.
So where do I start.............from the hotel pick up to the flight out, the scenery, the commentary, the breakfast, the jet boat through the falls, the shark feeding, the cruise up Cyclone Creek, the magnificent staff, the flight back and the hotel drop off......an absolute 10 out of 5!!! We have travelled the planet quite extensively but this is the best ever and right in our own backyard. It was an awesome adventure and a must do in your lifetime. Big boquets to all the staff at the Horizontal Falls Seaplane. A truly professional operation. Hats off to you all.

Spectacular ❤️
Oct 2020 • Couples
I can not fault this trip at all, it was nothing short of spectacular! Our pilot Alex was awesome he flew over the falls so we could take photos from the air. The breakfast in the pontoon was great and the staff were very nice. Brian our skipper was great and allowed for people to take photos from the boat. Although the trip is quite expensive it is well worth it, I can honestly say this was the best trip I’ve ever done. Furthermore, if we visit Broome in the future we would do this trip again. Thanks to seaplane horizontal falls adventure for a truly awesome day. 👌😍
