CANOE HIRE2018-12-13T13:36:26+00:00




Explore the lake at your own pace when you hire one of our watercraft. Young or old; fit or not-so-fit; complete beginner or advanced – the calm water of Lake Argyle is the ultimate place to canoe, kayak or SUP. We are happy to give you a few tips to get you started, then take to the water and away you go!

Canoe: We rent out a range of safe and reliable double and triple plastic canoes that track well through the water.

Kayak: We rent out a range of safe and reliable single and double plastic kayaks that track well through the water. These are sit-on-top kayaks and not sit-in kayaks

SUP: Glide across the water on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP). We offer a range of stand-up paddleboards for hire. Paddle boarding is suitable for all fitness levels and is a marvelous way to see Lake Argyle.

Inclusions: Your rental includes your watercraft, paddle and life jacket/s.

Note: Maritime regulations require all paddlers to wear life jackets at all times.

Safety: A safety briefing is provided to you before you enter the water.

Average Duration: Half 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!

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.


“I booked a cruise called Best of lake argyle and I tell you what we went from one end to the other ,left to right and every where in between finishing off with a swim and a beautiful lakeargyle sun set with a glass of champagne. The new boat is amazing with a very easy to use front swim deck the lowers into water and a ramp ladder that everyone found easy to use. Greg’s knowledge of lake argyle is the best around. Courtney in the front office and do’er of everything else was fantastic to deal with and nothing was hassle. Lots of food on board and we even had local produce water melon and rock melon for days. Tea and coffee was available and easy to make your own while the boat was travelling.
Greg pointed out lots of birds and a couple of fresh waters crocodiles.
Family friendly too
I drove my self to lake argyle but there was a bus available to book a transfer on if you didn’t have a car.
What a wonderful part of the world you live in and will definitely come again when I’m back at lake argyle”


Best of Lake Argyle tour – YES

“Yesterday I took the 6hr tour of Lake Argyle with Greg. 2 companies with similar names can be confusing but this tour was superb. Lunch rolls, tea coffee biscuits, fresh local fruit, and drinks and snacks at sunset. Great value, excellent info and Greg was a great host. He knows his stuff.”

“This place was just incredible. Greg was a fantastic tour guide, his knowledge of the area was very impressive. We done the half day Best of Lake Argyle cruise which included a swim and watching the sunset. Worth every $ and would gladly do it again. Thoroughly recommend this tour and this company. Outstanding.”

Amazing Backyard….

“Thank you Greg,
What an amazing backyard you have.
Your “Best of Argyle Tour” was fantastic, not only did we get to see some amazing scenery, but the wild life was spectacular.
The whole afternoon from start to finish was great, well organised, there was plenty of food, drinks and information.
The sunset beautiful and the full moon coming up over the lake was lovely.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend to everyone.”

Most definitely, our canoe, kayak & paddle board hire is a fun way to get out and explore Lake Argyle and tire out those energetic children!! We supply life jackets for all ages above 2 years of age. Our staff will share with you some fun places to visit.
We have dry bags available to loan for a $5 deposit.
No, we only operate on Lake Argyle. You can contact Go Wild Adventures for options down the Ord river.
During the months of June to August it can get cold out at Lake Argyle.
We recommend bringing a jumper or jacket and/or a change of clothes.
Certainly, we do have freshwater crocodiles in Lake Argyle but these creatures don’t actively hurt humans. We swim in the deeper parts of Lake Argyle where they frequent less.
Lake Argyle is 70kms from Kununurra. The drive should take approx 50 minutes, but we recommend giving yourself an hour travel time.
Certainly is, Lake Argyle Road is sealed the whole way. There are some spots you will need to slow down due to the condition of the road and you do need to check the road conditions in the ‘wet season’.
We recommend coming out to Lake Argyle 1-2 hours prior to your cruise departure time. Our Sales Team are more than happy to show you what else there is to do here. Pop into our office, located 200 metres past the Lake Argyle Resort, whilst here come and browse through our amazing Zebra Rock collection.
