‘Flyn’ Ryan was awesome. Great knowledge of the area, friendly pilot and just a great person to take you on a journey in the Kimberley.

While the whole tour is the fabulously good one, low altitude back to Broome flight that followed north western coast of WA was probably my favourite part of the experience. Our very friendly and helpful pilot Dan took us on a low flight following the beautiful coast line on a very smooth ride. View was incredible and Dan was extremely helpful in providing us with very detailed both general and some historical information of the area, places and islands we flew above, thank you Dan.

What a day! Mitchell Falls (with a great morning tea, a greater swim and an exhilarating helicopter ride), a fly over Horizontal Falls and then lunch at Cape Leveque. Amy - our pilot and tour guide - landed the plane smoothly on the red dirt airstrip - then walking distance to lunch. Would thoroughly recommend this tour - expensive but worth every dollar. My first time in the Kimberley’s will never be forgotten. Thanks Amy. Thanks Air Kimberley.

We were in Broome in April for my husband’s birthday. I did a lot of research on the various tours we could do in the Kimberly. I came across Air Kimberly which offered lots of different tours and experiences. I called them months ahead of our holiday and spoke to Ash. He was super helpful and spent a lot of time talking me through the different options. I ended up choosing the Cygnet Bay Adventure Safari and the Mitchell Falls Explorer - Dry. I opted for the private flight for that extra special experience. The experience with Air Kimberly was faultless. We were picked up from our accommodation on time then driven to the airfield. Ollie was our pilot for both of our tours. Ollie was so friendly, informative, professional, obliging and an absolute pleasure to be around. The Cygnet Bay Adventure Safari was such a unique and enjoyable experience - learning about the indigenous way of life was the absolute highlight. The service and food were five star and the accommodation was luxury glamping. The Mitchell Falls Explorer was yet another unforgettable experience - a morning picnic on the rocks overlooking the glorious waterfalls with no one else around, followed by lunch and a swim at the beautiful Cape Levique, then the flight back to the airfield via the majestic Horizontal Falls. As we did two tours with Air Kimberly, we got to spend a lot of time with Ollie and some time with Ash. We were really sad to say goodbye to them. The service by all of the team at Air Kimberly (especially Ollie and Ash) was better than 5 star. We won’t forget the experience and will definitely tour with them again if we return to Broome. I’d highly recommend Air Kimberly! Thank you so much Ollie, Ash and the team at Air Kimberly!

What an amazing day we all had. We were collected (and dropped off at the end of the day) and whisked to the airport where we were introduced to our amazing and extremely knowledgeable pilot Amy. On the 2hr flight there and back Amy gave us a history of where we were. On landing we were whisked via helicopter to the falls. Our guide Sam led us to the best spots to take photos and swim. The ancient Aborignal artwork was also amazing to see. Another “bucket list” item ticked off!

Had absolutely incredible time on this adventure. The highlights for me were the ancient Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal cave paintings, the helicopter ride and the hike back through all of the beautiful waterfalls and rocks. Our pilot, Amy was exceptional and so knowledgeable about the country we were crossing. She made the experience extra enjoyable.

What a fantastic day trip, our pilot and guide Ryan really made the day extra special for all of us on the tour. He was professional but relaxing, his knowledge and stories of the areas we visited were perfect. The scenery was fantastic and the lunch at Cape Leveque was just lovely. A big thank you to Ryan, you are awesome mate!!

A wonderful day. Long, but very enjoyable. Sam, our pilot, gave us information about each area we flew over. Rosie, our guide, met us at Mitchell Plateau at the memorable airport lounge (a tin shed). A quick helicopter ride to the campsite from which we hiked down to the Mitchell Falls. Not that easy for oldies like us, but we were well looked after. A couple of swims in the rivers, and a spectacular view at the end. It was made more spectacular by the helicopter ride giving everyone a good view, then back to Mitchell Plateau for the flight back to Broome. This time we flew at a lower altitude and followed the coastline, Sam pointing out all the sights - reefs, pearl farms, horizontal falls, iron ore mines, Indigenous communities. No whales this time, but a fascinating exploration of the Kimberley coast and its multitude of islands, bays and inlets.
