we did the 1h40 tour over horizontal fall and buccaneer archipellago. The scenery is gorgeous. Our pilot, Mikhail, was very knowledgeable and his tour-long commentary was very interesting and diverse. We would definitely recommend it!

Rod and his team provided exceptional service and an amazing flight over what can only be described as gods country. Looking out over the Horizontal Falls, and Montgomery Reef was simple spectacular. Highly recommend it.

Fantastic flight and absolutely amazing sight. Unlike the sea planes the North West Bush Pilots fly to a schedule according to when the tides will be the highest, so you get the best view of the falls. Amazing scenery to and from horizontal falls! Like...More
