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.

Had to take the time to leave you guys a review, we can not express how amazing this trip was! Anyone coming up to the Kimberly's should definitely do the tour, the everyday cost that must be associated with the running costs of the seaplanes, boats, amazing food and awesome staff we felt it was extremely great value for money,...

We highly recommend this tour to everyone if all ages! We just completed an overnight stay, food was plentiful & tasty, Keesha & the crew were outstanding hosts. We had the best skipper "Bryatt", he showed us every angle of the falls possible & was absolutely full of knowledge about all the local habitat & landscape. We didn't want to... More

Chose the half day AM tour and although delayed a while because of fog the tour went ahead for the scheduled time. Once in the air from Broome Airport the visual experience was exceptional. Varying landscape and colours followed by the splendour of Talbot Bay. From this point of the tour everything exceeded our expectations, plentiful breakfast,feeding of the sharks... More

This was by far the best thing I did in Broome. Seaplane to Talbot Bay,over Buccaneer Archipelago, breathtaking from the air all along the coastline. Barramundi lunch, swim with the sharks and then the Jetboat through the Horizontal Falls and cruise up Cyclone Creek. Words can't explain and pics don't do it justice. You just have to experience it for... More

Just before arriving in Broome from Darwin, I was informed that the Kimberley Experience that I had booked a long way ahead of our departure from Sydney, had to be cancelled due to denied access to the region, gorges etc. In no way, the fault of the tour operator. The day after arriving in Broome, my wife and I decided... More

Highlight of our trip ( next to the highlanders beating the force game we attended ). Well worth the money spent, spectacular views from the flight to an exhilarating jet boat ride and swim with the sharks. Great friendly staff from start to finish..... a must do experience

Although quite expensive it was worth every bit of it. Everything about this tour was professional and absolutely everything was taken care of. All of the guides, drivers and the pilot could not have been more helpful and efficient. The scenery and the falls were fantastic. Would recommend.

Although expensive this trip is worth every cent. The day we went we had heavy fog and delayed for two hours. Instead of leaving us standing around the airport they took us to a cafe in town and shouted us coffee until we could take off. We were booked on the full day tour and they cancelled the half days...
