Receive a safety briefing from your pilot, along with headphones to wear that allow you to hear your pilot's informative commentary during the flight. Then take off and head over the Kimbolton Ranges, Fitzroy River, and Horizontal Waterfalls, before reaching the Buccaneer Archipelago.

Take in the Thousand Islands of the archipelago, where the turquiose waters host one of Australia’s oldest family-owned pearl farms, located in Cygnet Bay. Your pilot then brings the plane in for a gentle landing at Cape Leveque. On the ground, you're served either breakfast or afternoon tea, depending on the timing of your tour. 

After eating, have free time to relax on the sandy beach, swim in the Indian Ocean, and get great photo ops of the stunning red sandstone cliffs of Cape Leveque. 

Return to Broome via the coast, passing over Pender Bay, Beagle Bay, Carnot Bay, James Price Point, Willie Creek, and Cable Beach. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off at the end of 4.5 hours.
Stop At:  
Horizontal Falls
Departing Broome, you track over the Chinatown district of Broome, sweeping over Roebuck Bay and surrounds. The flight path takes you over Malcolm Douglas Crocodile farm and the Broome Road before heading towards the Dampier Peninsula. As you fly past the millions of hectares of station land, rich in Aboriginal Heritage, your pilot will regale you with stories and the history of the area before you enter the area known as the Buccaneer Archipelago. Looming ahead 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. You are now over pristine pearl farming waters where only a few pearl farms of the archipelago become visible. Photo opportunities abound here. ​ The Horizontal Waterfalls soon come into sight as the aircraft is positioned to get the perfect view from the window. This magnificent example of Mother Nature’s power is closely aligned between the gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The Horizontal Falls are a fast moving tidal flow through two narrow fingers, the direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach ten metres, a 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. Flying over Talbot Bay, the home of the famous Paspaley Pearling Empire, you see the hundreds of long lines each housing the valuable oysters that cultivate the pearl. Your Pilot weaves through the islands of Cockatoo and Koolan (mining empires) and heads towards Cape Leveque where the red rock cliffs meet the white sandy beaches bordering the pristine blue waters.
