GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR TOUR
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!
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.
Great lake cruise and canoeing.
Matt and Greg hosted a great afternoon out on the lake. Matt is a wealth of knowledge on the lake, the wildlife and the area generally.
Do yourself a favour and hire a canoe to do some solo exploring. You’ll then get a shot at jumping off a rock ledge into the lake from heights of 10 to 15 meters. Great fun.
The Lake Argyle Resort also offer cruises and if you are staying there the staff will pitch that cruise, and not those of Lake Argyle cruises (who have brochures at reception).
I understand that Matt and Greg from Lake Argyle Cruises each have 8 years experience running cruises on the lake. I don’t think the resort can offer this experience. The resort cruises looked a tad commercial and touristy.
