In the Buccaneer Archipelago, tides change so dramatically that they race through narrow gorges at up to 35 mph (56 kph), creating a horizontal waterfall. Experience this natural phenomenon, which can only be reached by boat or plane, on a classic turbo-prop seaplane. Feel the adrenaline rush as your speedboat powers through the falls, enjoy a hot meal on board, and cruise the bays and creeks. Tour includes hotel transfers.
