GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR TOUR
Good things come to those who bait. If you’re angling to catch a fish during your time at Lake Argyle, join us for a fishing expedition! We guarantee that you’ll catch a fish of some sort and, if not, we’ll give you a 50% refund. Lake Argyle abounds with a huge variety and number of fish. The largest is the massive “Silver Cobbler” which can weigh up to 40kg. We target these huge beasts as well as the feisty “Sooty Grunter” and anything else which might come along. Barramundi are increasing in numbers, but are still few and far between.
Includes: We supply a selection of rods, reels, hand lines, bait and lures (lures to be replaced if lost). You are also welcome to bring your own gear. We are supporters of sustainable fishing practices and have therefore imposed our own limit of 3x ﬁsh or 3kg (unless a single ﬁsh filleted weighs over 3kg, then you can keep whole ﬁsh) per person per trip.
To book your Lake Argyle fishing trip, please contact us.
Average Duration: 4 hours
Note: We guarantee that you’ll catch a fish of some sort and, if not, we’ll give you a 50% refund.
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.
“Had a fantastic time fishing with Steve our skipper.. well worth it. If you visit lake argyle go and see the crew at the lake argyle cruises, they will look after you and show you amazing views.”
“Definitely recommend taking the fishing charter with LA cruises. Our skipper James was very knowledgeable and made our outing a fun day out! Not only did we catch some tasty and huge silver cobbler but you get a tour of the lake and see all the wildlife on offer.”
