    Seeing the stunning coastline, visiting the hatchery, learning about the pearling history. The boat ride to see the whirlpools. Coffee or tea at morning tea and lunch would have been good after early start..

    Tracy_G, Jun 2022
    Everything was spectacular Kimberly air did not disappoint. Our pilot Tom was the best, fab pilot, full of knowledge throughout the trip,very patient, witty and attentive. Flying over the islands,falls and down the coast home was just amazing lots of time for photos Indigenous tour and fish farm lady presenter was really special The boat trip and skipper was equally fab,food & lunch was great had time for a quick swim at cygnet bay and pearl farm tour was well presented Highly recommend this 10 hr trip worth the money and all staff (especially Pilot Tom) and Kimberly ground crew were professional but relaxed and very friendly and attentive Thanks Happy customers

    The day was wonderful so much to see, Horizontal falls was magnificent from the air, also enjoyed Cygnet Bay
    Best Tour Ever. Absolutely amazing.
    Michelle_P, May 2022
    After travelling for 3 weeks and seeing so many wonderful sights of the WA and NT, my husband and I agree that the Cygnet Bay / Horizontal Falls with Air Kimberley was the best tour we did throughout our whole holiday. The flight with Jack as the pilot was fantastic, pointing out to us all the wonders as flew over the vast landscape. Landing at One Arm Point to hear Sarah and for her to show us the hatchery was very interesting. Paul the jet board driver was excellent, telling us all about the water in the area and so much more. It was a lot of fun zooming through the water and seeing the pace of the water flow. Cygnet Bay Pearls offered a lovely lunch and the tour was very interesting. We really enjoyed our time here and I left purchasing a beautiful pearl that I will treasure forever. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
    Sights, experiences & knowledge never to be forgotten
    Gill_W, May 2022
    Most enjoyable moments were flying over the Horizontal Falls & the Buccaneer Archipelagos. Viewing & cruising the Giant tide on the Kimberley Coast. Learning the history of pearling. Obtaining knowledge about Pearl farming. All Air Kimberley, Cygnet Bay pearl farm staff were so professional, friendly,helpful & passionate about their roles to ensure all passengers had the most memorable tour, special thanks to our pilot Gaby

    From setting off to return, Tom was the best - pilot, guide, driver, caterer and all round star. Very informative and knowledgeable. Couldn’t thank him enough for such an enjoyable day!

    Brilliant half daytrip
    Donna_M, May 2022
    Ed was a brilliant pilot, showed us all the great sites by air. The fish hatchery was really interesting especially to see the underwater environment up close. The pearl farm lead by Jacquie was really really interesting.
    Cygnet Bay Explorer - a truly memorable experienceble
    Paul_W, May 2022
    We really appreciated the organisation, efficiency and professionalism of the Air Kimberley staff particularly our pilot and guide Daphne who provided great commentary as we flew. Highlights were flying over the Horizontal Falls, the Buchaneer Archipelago, King Sound and the return flight down the coastline. We enjoyed the stopovers at Ardyaloon and learning about the Bardi Jawa people and their connection to land (and sea). The boat ride from Cygnet Bay past Sunday Island to witness the giant tide and whirlpools (and to have a 'play' in them) was a memorable experience. This trip (a long day of 11 hours) was a wonderful experience and worth every dollar we paid. Thank you Viator for offering this opportunity - truly memorable. Paul & Anne Wilson
    Great trip, Tom and Air...

    Great trip, Tom and Air Kimberley very professional and ensured a memorable experience. Would recommend regardless of age.
    Amazing experience and service!
    Heer_B, Apr 2022
    Everything about this tour was amazing - from the views to the food. Tom was our pilot for the day and he was the most amazing tour guide/pilot. Couldn’t have asked for anything better! Would highly recommend doing it - you get to see and do a lot more than most other tours AND all for the same price!!
    Jason_P, Apr 2022
    Pilot was very polite. Flights over falls was very enjoyable. Little bit over priced for what you got.
    A great trip, but not quite as advertised
    Bernard_C, Mar 2022
    Flight over the Horizonral Falls and boat trip. Pilot and all guides were great, however felt a bit rushed being taken straight onto boat trip after just arriving at Cygnet Bay, no brunch and no reef falls as described in brochure
    A must if your in Broome!
    Philip_S, Mar 2022
    Great Trip !! a must if your in Broome....Air Kimberley will deliver an incredible tour. Ben our pilot was very informative with great local knowledge. Horizontal Falls are incredible and Cygnet Bay pearl Farm will not disappoint.

    I would rate the locations and customer service provided as excellent. Its worth every cent charged.! Ben (2) was our pilot and guide for the trip. He was a pleasant young man well versed with the details of the tour,places and other minor details.
    Top day
