Horizontal falls is a unique place that can only be reached via seaplane or boat. It is located in Talbot Bay in the Dampier Archapelego. The falls are created by the vastly varying tides rushing in & out of the small openings between the cliffs. At the peak of high tide and the peak of low tide they appear to stop momentarily before beginning again. The water rushes through the opening forming rapids and whirlpools as the water tries to enter or leave the bay. You can ride through the falls on a jet boat. You can go through both falls at low tide, but only through the first one at high tide. It is a unique phenomena which you have to experience to really appreciate, but the whole area is beautiful & untouched. I have taken this image from the seaplane as we were coming in to land so you can get an overall veiw of the falls & surrounding lagoons.
