What To Bring

Our Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventure tours are well prepared and planned. It’s our job to take you on an adventure, it’s your job to enjoy it.

We spend a lot of time and effort ensuring that all our tours are meticulously planned and prepared for our guests’ enjoyment. There is only a handful of things you will need to bring when going on our tour:

  • A small backpack (no more than 2kg for day tours and 5kg for overnight tours)
  • Sun protection
  • Camera
  • Change of clothes
  • Swimwear and towel
  • Any personal medication or essential toiletries you require

Guests are also welcomed to bring additional alcohol for their overnight stay.

Health & Fitness

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a suitable level of health and fitness to undertake the Tour. You are required to have a reasonable level of mobility, to be able to board and alight aircraft using stairs, embark and disembark from vessels and to maintain balance on pontoons. Due to space restrictions onboard our aircraft, we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers. We recommend that all pregnant women discuss whether it is safe for them to participate in the power boat activity with their doctor. Notwithstanding, we do not recommend that women who are more than 26 weeks pregnant participate in the power boat activity.

If you have doubts about your ability to undertake the Tour, please contact us to discuss your circumstances prior to making a Booking.

For further details on our Health & Fitness requirements including Existing Medical Conditions, New Medical Conditions and Non-Disclosed Medical Conditions please see our Terms and Conditions.

NEAP TIDES

Neap Tides are part of the normal tidal cycle and occur each month when the sun and moon are at right angles to the earth.

During this time, their total gravitational pull on the Earth’s water is weakened because the water flows from two different directions – high tides are lower, and low tides are higher. For this reason, Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures does not operate during a neap tide.

SLOW WATER

The power of the Horizontal Falls water flow is determined by fluctuating tidal movements. During slow water dates, the tidal movements are minimal, meaning the horizontal waterfalls are relatively inactive making for a scenic boat cruise and an opportunity to take in spiritual and historical significance of the area in a more relaxed setting. Please note – respecting local Indigenous beliefs, we only traverse the Wide Gap (first set of Falls) and do not go through the Narrow Gap (second set of Falls) however guests will see the narrow gap at a safe distance. During Slow Water days, there will be very minimal water movement visible in the narrow gap. The experience of the Falls flow will differ from tour to tour as we operate in an environment that is different every day.
