BOOKING & AVAILABILITY
Explore the lake at your own pace when you hire one of our child and pet friendly BBQ Pontoons.
We have two 5m X 2.5m pontoons equipped with 20hp motor, gas barbecue and toilet that are licensed for 10 passengers.
These pontoons are fantastic value for groups of families and friends, child and pet friendly with a fully enclosed cage and lockable gate and loads of room to enjoy an afternoon BBQ or relaxing paddle in the lake with our supplied pool noodles. For a small fee, we can also supply an Esky with ice and cooking utensils. And for the extra comfort, small toilet can be found on board.
Greg and his team have over 20 years of experience on the lake and will be more than happy to advise on the best spots to see wildlife and cast a line.
Please note if you wish to fish, a WA Fishing License will be required.
- Inclusions: Your rental includes boat hire, fuel and gas for the barbecue.
- Safety: All safety equipment is provided with the boat
- Average Duration: Half Day or Full Day
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!
Boardshorts and a singlet/shirt for guys and swimwear for ladies, as you may fall in and get wet! You should bring a dry change of clothes to get into afterwards and a towel. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen and camera! Warm clothing may be required from June to August.
“We hired the BBQ pontoon for an afternoon. What a fantastic and economical option for a family!!! Takes up to 10 adults and has a BBQ and toilet onboard. You also don’t need a Skippers ticket to hire, unlike other boats. It was fantastic fun – kids were able to be their (loud and excited) selves as we had the pontoon all to ourselves. The guide on arrival was super helpful! Showing us where fish had been caught, where to go and where maybe to avoid and what we could see. So happy we took this option. We had a fantastic time!!!! Our 4 year old caught her very first fish on the day.
Hint …….. get your fishing license for WA beforehand.
Definitely recommend Lake Argyle Cruises and their BBQ Pontoon hire!”

“Stayed at Lake Argyle Resort for 5 days and used Lake Argyle Cruises for the kayaks, the tinny and the BBQ Pontoon. Their office is right next door to the resort and the staff were efficient and friendly. Good prices and well looked after equipment. Had an absolute ball on the kayaks, tinny and the pontoon (especially loved the pontoon as had a bbq lunch and we all were on it together – 7 of us).”
