VIDEO: Nautical gauntlet

America has no monopoly on reality television.

All 4 Adventure” is a popular Australian show that follows a couple of modern-day adventurers on rugged expeditions into some of the most remote corners and wildest frontiers Down Under.

In one episode the dynamic duo run the nautical gauntlet known as the Horizontal Waterfalls, two narrow gorges in Talbot Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago in western Australia.

Massive tidal movements create a waterfall effect with ferocious currents and a tidal range of as much as 33 feet as water banks up against one side of the narrow cliff passage and ricochets off the other.

As you’ll see, they have all they can handle to keep their aluminum powerboat upright while clearing the passage.
