Amy was a great pilot and showed us so many interesting places I would never experience or see in my ordinary every day life. I experienced not only Horizontal falls but much much more exploring the magnificent dry interior and amazing coastline watching the tide receding in great speed uncovering jewels of islands and white sand of unspoilt shores.

Amazing natural phenomenon made accessible by the fantastic staff at Horizontal Falls Adventures.

We did the full day tour from Broome flying up to the falls and then down to One Arm Point for a return to Broome via 4wd bus.

Highlight were the falls themselves with repeated passes through the main fall and the hand feeding of the local fish including sharks.

The seaplane rides themselves were an experience in their own right giving unforgettable views of the Dampier Peninsula, King Sound and the falls themselves.

The subsequent visit to Cape Leveque and the Bardi Jawa aquaculture facility, with a Barramundi lunch at the Kooljaman Resort rounded out a perfect day.

Highly recommended and worth the asking price.

This was without doubt the highlight of our recent trip to Broome. Our prompt early morning pickup, the professional and welcoming staff and the speedy and efficient check-in at the airport meant that we were all up in the air in a very short time. The flight over Talbot Bay and the Horizontal Falls gave you a great aerial view before our water landing.

We were lucky with our timing as the window of opportunity to traverse the falls is fairly limited. The staff and crew on the pontoon/houseboat were friendly, experienced and professional. We were out on the jet boats before we had time to take in the magnificent location - our mad Irish skipper made sure that we made the most of our time shooting both gorges multiple times at speed. The cooked breakfast back on the pontoon was just what we needed after that - I don't think anyone was left hungry. The swim in the cage with circling bull sharks was a once in a lifetime experience - though they were more interested in the food the staff were feeding them than us. The subsequent cruise up Cyclone Creek was relaxing but don't forget your sunscreen, hat and water bottle.

For me the next part of the trip, a low level flight across the Buccaneer Archipelago, in our seaplane, was simply amazing - this was awe inspiring - whilst it was hard to hear the pilots commentary my camera never stopped taking videos/photos.

Landing at One Arm Point we were quickly offloaded into a comfortable 4WD bus, whilst customers doing the reverse trip embarked on the seaplane - very efficient operation (though I think doing the falls first was the better option). Pete our bus driver had plenty of anecdotes to share along the drive which kept everyone entertained. The tour of the Cygnet Bay pearling operation did feel a bit rushed though everyone was grateful for our barramundi lunch at the Cygnet Bay restaurant. Exploring Cape Leveque, the opportunity to walk along the beach and dip our feet in the ocean was welcomed by all.

I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe everything that we experienced on this tour. Yes it is pricey but it is worth every dollar - the skill and professionalism of all the staff involved made not only our day but our entire trip to Broome so perfect. This is one adventure that you cannot afford to pass on - do yourself a favour and make sure you book the full-day tour. I would even be tempted to stay overnight on the pontoon/houseboat next time...

The whole tour with no exceptions. The breakfast at Kooljaman, the seaplane ride over the Archipelago and the motor boat ride through the falls were experiences that were outstanding. The efficiency of the company and the friendliness of the staff made all the difference between a good tour and an excellent one. This was most definitely the latter.

There's not much more I can add to what everyone else has said. Its a bucket list day. Special shout out to our Pilot Mackenzie and bus Driver Pete.
Yes, its expensive but its a once in a life time experience and when you see all the infrastructure in place to create this experience, you'll understand its well worth every cent. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

This was one of the most amazing tours! A full day of adventure and seeing this spectacular country. Pete, our 4WD guide was great, knowledgeable and super funny! Pilot Paul was excellent! All the staff on the pontoon and skippers were so friendly. Felt at all times in great hands with fully experienced and highly skilled staff. This is one of those experiences that will stay with you for a long time. Huge thanks to all for providing the opportunity for people to experience this.

It was the most amazing day out. We first saw the falls when we flew over part of the Bucaneer Archapelago and the Horizontal Falls on our way in and again on our way to Paradise Point later in the morning - just WOW! When we landed at the Horizontal Hotel which is what they call the floating base/pontoon we were treated to coffee and biscuits before going down to watch the sharks being fed in the open based cage. It is only a few treats - they are not interfering in natural feeding habits. After the fish feeding we all piled into a jet boat and went for a cruise through the creek systems that feed into Talbot Bay with amazing and dramatic scenery all around us. Absolutely beautiful. We came back to Horizontal Hotel for a yummy breakfast - buffet style meal. All being very excited, it was then back into the jet boat and out to traverse both the wide and narrow passages of Horizontal Falls. With an informative commentary about the geological formations of this wonderful natural phenomenon and several passes through both passages followed by a reverse we were then off back to Horizontal Falls to get on the Sea Plane and head over to Paradise Point where we were picked up by a 4x4 bus and taken to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm for a tour. We had a barramundi and salad lunch before climbing back onto the bus and going to Cape Leveque. We then climbed back onto the bus for the long drive back to Broome. Unfortunately due to Covid, we were not allowed to visit any of the Aboriginal Communities along the way.
Was it an expensive day out - money wise? - yes.
Was it worth it? -.YES!!
Would I do it again? - YES! YES! YES!
