Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I book?

We are experiencing a high volume of enquiries and visitors to the region this year, so we recommend booking as soon as you know your dates to avoid disappointment. 

How hard is the Mitchell Falls hike?

The hike has a Class 5 rating and requires a high level of fitness. The trail is mainly in the direct sun with minimal shade. Parts of the trail involve climbing over rocks, uneven ground and a water crossing. We allow 2 hours to complete the 4km hike. A waiver form will need to be signed on the morning of tour by all passengers prior to departing. Please contact our office if you would like to read this waiver form prior to booking.

If you have concerns regarding your hiking ability our Mitchell Falls Coastal Adventure tour from Kununurra is a good alternative. 

What size aircraft do you use and how many people do they fit?

We have two different size seaplanes, our smaller Cessna 206 Seaplane carries 4-5 passengers, our larger Cessna 208 Amphibious Seaplane carries 9 passengers.

We have three different fixed wing aircraft  - Cessna 210 holds up to 5 passengers, Cessna 207 holds up to 6 passengers and the Cessna 208 holds 13 passengers.

All dependant on passenger weights, with guaranteed window seats on all tours.

Will I get a window seat?

Yes, we guarantee a window seat on ALL tours.

How many people do you need to confirm a booking?

We will confirm a tour with 2 passengers subject to availability.

Does the weather affect the tours?

Generally, weather is not an issue throughout the Kimberley dry season. However, weather is one of the few things we can’t control so there are the very rare occasions where we may need to delay or reschedule tours in order to give you the best possible touring experience.

Is there a passenger weight limit?

Yes, we have a passenger weight limit of 125kg for all of our tours.

What seniors card do you accept for the senior rate?

A valid Australian Seniors card or Pensioner card for your country of residence must be presented at time of booking to receive the Senior rate. Senior rates only apply to selected tours.

What is the difference between the Bungle Bungle & Lake Argyle Island Experience by seaplane and the Bungle Bungle Air Adventure by fixed wing aircraft?

Taking off from the waters edge on Lake Kununurra, our seaplane Bungle Bungle tour is a real thrill for those who haven’t been in a seaplane before! Flying low level over Lake Argyle and touching down on the water for morning or afternoon tea at a remote island is an amazing experience. Our fixed wing Bungle Bungle tour, while also showcasing Lake Argyle, the Bungles and the Argyle Diamond Mine, provides a great alternative for those looking for a cheaper alternative without compromising quality. The fixed wing tour is also good for those who may be stretched for time as it’s a 2 hour flight as opposed to the 3 hours for the seaplane tour.

Can you hold seats for me?

Unfortunately, we can’t put seats on hold. Full payment is required to confirm all bookings.

I’m a keen photographer, will I get good photos on my tour?

Can infants and children travel on tours?
