Fly the Falls

Bear witness to one of the world’s greatest natural wonders

Have you ever seen a waterfall… on its side?

Spectacular gorges, stunning turquoise waters and one thrilling tidal event make for a scene straight out of the next Indiana Jones blockbuster.

So, satchel and fedora at the ready – strap in, sit back and prepare for an adrenaline-pumping, once-in-a-lifetime adventure you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life (you can leave the leather jacket at home).

The Highlights

Horizontal Falls

The main event – an entirely unique phenomena hailed by David Attenborough as one of the world’s greatest natural wonders (and he’s seen a few). Fly over the falls and witness the world-renowned spectacle in all its glory.

Marvel at the majestic King Sound and Buccaneer Archipelago

Glowing rock formations, striking cliff faces and a thousand islands. Sound like something from another time? Well, it is. Fly over one of the most remote, rugged and untouched regions in the world, and watch time stop still.

The most rare and pure South Sea Pearls

Immerse yourself in the story of the Australian Pearl with a visit to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. Learn about the history of Cygnet Bay and how they culture some of the finest pearls in the world. Sounds amazing right?

Choose the Full Day Fly the Falls Adventure

Up for an extra adventure? Join us on the full day tour and experience a Cygnet Bay Sea Safari. Feel the power of the world’s largest tropical tides as you cruise amongst the giant whirlpools and standing tidal waves! Venture into Escape Passage, recently described as the fastest ocean current in the world! Excited?

Hot breakfast or lunch

Drawing inspiration from their pearling history, indigenous ingredients and local seafood, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm isn’t your typical pitstop. Enjoy a hot breakfast or barramundi lunch – it doesn’t get more Broome than that – with dietary options available.

Tailored to get you the best view, every time

We may be pilots, but we know these tides as well as any air current. The tidal flow of the falls changes each day, so if it’s flowing in the morning, we’ll take you right there – if it’s afternoon, we’ll stop off for a bite to eat first.

And a window seat to so much more…

You’ll have the best seat in the house to Cape Leveque, Beagle Bay, the Lacepede Islands, James Price Point and more. Your ever-knowledgeable pilot’s running commentary will ensure you won’t miss a thing.


We time our fly over so you see the falls at their peak, so departure time varies depending on the day’s tides but is always between 7.00-9.00am. More information on your departure time can be found on the booking link below.
