Imagine living in a place where crocodiles outnumber humans; where you’re hours from the coast, but the sea is your front yard (an inland sea, that is); where flocks of birds can number into the tens of thousands; and where each day’s sunset has the potential to be the best you’ve ever seen.
When Greg began operating in 1999, he knew he’d never tire of showing this incredible part of the world to others. Two decades (and thousands of guests later) Lake Argyle Cruises remains the number one choice for exploring this magnificent part of the Kimberley.
Our fleet of purpose-built cruise vessels offer comfortable seating and unobstructed views, immersing you into the breathtaking landscape that the Eastern Kimberley is renowned for. Our team’s passion and knowledge, together with our fantastic products have earned us the Holy Grail for any tour company – a five star rating and Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor.
Whether you’re spotting for wildlife during one of our cruises, hiring a dinghy and throwing in a line, drifting across the water on a stand-up paddle board, or soaking in the magic of an East Kimberley sunset, you’ll experience the heart and soul of Lake Argyle with us, Lake Argyle Cruises!
Dress ‘Kimberley casual’ – shorts, t-shirt and sandals. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen, camera and binoculars! If you are sensitive to the cold, bring a light jacket to wear while we are motoring. Wear your swimwear and pack a towel for your swim at the end of the cruise. Warm clothing may be required from June to August.
"We did the all day Dingy Hire and this is arguably the best way to see the lake our your own leisure. Plenty of wildlife to see. A lot of time to stop the motor, drift and take in the silence and breathtaking scenery. This was the best day of our month in Kimberly by far. The dingy was well equipped and maintained which made the day care free. Thanks to Greg , Courtney and Billy for making the day the best in hiring the boat. Keep up the great work. I can’t recommend this high
