After your complimentary hotel pick up, you will be brought to Broome Aviation’s very own departure lounge located at the Broome International Airport. Here you will be greeted by your pilot for the day and have the opportunity for a pre-flight tea or coffee in air-conditioned comfort. Your pilot will outline the days adventure and give a brief safety demonstration before commencing your flight.
Departing Broome, you track over the Chinatown district, sweeping over Roebuck Bay and surrounds, Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and the Broome township before heading to the Dampier Peninsula.
As you fly over the millions of hectares of station land, enriched in Aboriginal heritage, your pilot will share stories and the history of the area before you enter the Buccaneer Archipelago region. Ahead of you also will be the Kimbolton Ranges, an ancient coastal seabed of the region. These ancient relics are the product of a once Devonian reef system. The thousands of islands that form the Buccaneer Archipelago become distinct.
The spectacular tidal movements of the Horizontal Waterfalls which are closely aligned between the gorges of the McLarty Range in Talbot Bay will appear in your sight. As the Kimberley tides can reach up to as high as 11 meters, the peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge, which creates the rushing water and illusion of the Horizontal Falls.
Your pilot will then weave through the islands of Cockatoo and Koolan which are known as the mining empires of the Kimberley. Landing in Cape Leveque, you will be surrounded by the red rock cliffs that meet the white sandy beaches that boarder the pristine blue waters. Here you will enjoy a beautiful breakfast and have time to explore and enjoy a refreshing swim.
You will then take a short flight over to the historical Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, which is one of Australia's oldest operational Pearl Farms. The Cygnet Bay tour guides will give you a demonstration of a pearl harvest and an in-depth pearl appreciation session.
Take the opportunity to browse their stunning loose pearls and exquisite pearl jewelry, you might even find one for yourself!
Once you have finished browsing, you go onto enjoy a delicious lunch at the Cygnet Bay Restaurant. After lunch, you will be taken for the fast boat ride tour where you will cruise through the Kimberley Rock Islands part of the Sunday Island Group and marvel at the standing waves and whirlpools.
Taking to the skies again, you will fly the beautiful WA coastline, taking in the sights of Lombadina, James Price Point, Sandy Bay, Beagle Bay and Willie Creek.
Upon landing back in Broome, your tour concludes with the complimentary hotel drop off and your very own tour souvenir.
*The Horizontal Falls is a natural tidal phenomenon. We unfortunately cannot guarantee the amount or level of water flowing through the falls at any given time. We will however vary our schedule and flight path to suit optimum tidal movement as best we can.
* The Giant Tides are powered by a natural tidal movement. As we aren't able to guarantee the water levels flowing through, when on lower tides (neaps) the boat will cruise the Pearl Farm and along Joligo Beach showcasing the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago.
