Horizontal Falls

Talbot Bay, Western Australia, 6733

The Basics

A seaplane flight from Broome affords sweeping aerial views of the Horizontal Falls. If you’re the more adventurous type, you might opt to explore the falls on a thrilling jet boat ride—some of which are combined with a scenic cruise along the Kimberley coast, a 4WD tour of the Dampier Peninsula, or stops at nearby attractions such as Cape Leveque and Cable Beach.

Brilliant Day!
Billy was the best guide and pilot! He told us all about the history of the area and was able to get so close to the horizontal falls. He then took us to the pearl farm which was so informative and brought the pearl to life. And we were then treated to a brilliant journey back with Billy explaining so many interesting things on the coastline. I recommend this tour to anyone!

What a great day! An all day adventure including flying over King’s Sound, the stunning Buccaneer Archipelago and Horizontal Falls. Our pilot Billy was really knowledgeable about the history - both Indigenous and European, geology and geography of the area adding to the visual experience. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and informative tour at the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm before cruising back down the coast at just 500 feet to Broome. An experience not to be missed.

While the whole tour is the fabulously good one, low altitude back to Broome flight that followed north western coast of WA was probably my favourite part of the experience. Our very friendly and helpful pilot Dan took us on a low flight following the beautiful coast line on a very smooth ride. View was incredible and Dan was extremely helpful in providing us with very detailed both general and some historical information of the area, places and islands we flew above, thank you Dan.

Excellent scenery and photo opportunities from the plane. Very good healthy lunch at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm (lunch was grilled burramundi on rice with salad (no chips)). Good views of Horizontal Falls. Very good tour of the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. Tip for future travelers: Don't wear a checkered shirt as the reflection in the window can spoil photos.

A thoroughly enjoyable tour that not only included several passes over the falls and an informative tour of the pearl farm, but also the bonus of spotting several whales on the return flight to ,Broome.

The whole day was fabulous from a great pilot to fun-companions and the most wonderful sites that I never expected. Pirate gave us so much information and I saw parts of the Kimberleys that are totally deserted but beautiful. The horizontal Falls were incredible but Cygnet Bay was amazing. Best barramundi I’ve ever eaten and a beautiful pool to cool off in.

Horizontal Falls A Natural Phenomenon

The Horizontal Falls are created by the passage of the ocean through narrow gaps in the sea cliffs of Talbot Bay. Because the tides there are massive—reaching upward of 33 feet (10 meters)—the volume of water is too much to squeeze through the openings. So, the water stacks up along the walls, awaiting a path through the rocks, then bursts through—creating a waterfall that shoots horizontally through the bay.
