          Great afternoon on the river
          Mabo was an excellent guide/boat driver. Really enjoyed his commentary as we made our way down the ord river to a lovely spot for afternoon tea. Beautiful fresh pumpkin scones and cup cakes.

          Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon.
          What a fun day! Hazel, on the bus, had lots of great information. Mabo, on the boat, had even more, and was a lot of fun as we motored along the mighty Ord River. Lots of laughter was heard. Great food was provided. (And my footy team defeated his while we were cruising, to top off the day. 😀😀💙❤️💛) Would totally recommend this tour. Thank you, Triple J tours.

          Kununurra bus and boat trip
          We went on a 70km bus ride with Hazel, who was fantastic! Very informative and gave us heaps of info on the way to Argyle Dam. We then joined a boat cruise back from the dam to Kununurra. Our captain was Marbo. He did a fantastic job too. Very entertaining, and imparted a heap of knowledge. He also motored down the river with great experience. Afternoon tea was provided too. All in all a fantastic half day trip. Collected at 11.30am, and returned us to our accommodation at 5.45pm. We really enjoyed it, and would recommend highly.

          Awesome cruise
          Awesome cruise, Jeff has a wealth of knowledge of the local history and the Ord river. He served up a delicious afternoon tea in a secluded spot. Sunset was beautiful. Highly recommend.

          Stunning scenery, best day out
          Amazing tour! From the bus pick up, museum tour, dam stop and boat cruise down the river, this day trip is well worth it. Stunning scenery and our skipper Marbo kept us well informed and entertained as we made our way back down the river for sunset. As his "self appointed deckie" he could have worked me harder but I can honestly say this is a day I won't forget 😀

          Glad we did this tour
          Initially not on our list of things to do but we are glad we have done this tour. Would highly recommend this tour company. It is well organised with very knowledgeable staff. The scenery was stunning and Jeff’s level of knowledge was astounding. We had a delicious afternoon tea and then an almost spectacular sunset which Jeff could not control. Mother nature presented some clouds at the wrong time.

          Worth the trip
          We did the trip with a bus ride to the Ord Dam and a cruise down t(e river back to Kununurra. The bus driver Hazel was lovely and really knew her stuff but all was lost as the amplification through the bus just did it work. Mabo the boat driver was quite a pleasant character with plenty of knowledge and heaps of ability to take us from the Ord river dam back to Kununurra. Afternoon tea provided was great and tasty. Our grips was that the boat seats were the most uncomfortable seats to have to endure for a 3+ hour trip. There were soft drinks supplied in cans for most people but nothing for those that only wanted water. It was paper cups and cold water at the back of the boat. You really couldn’t stand up as the standing area was far too small and the boat was fairly full. We saw a lovely sunset and saw some great fauna and flora.

          Scenery and boat experience
          We had a fantastic day. Boat is great. Not to be missed. Scenery spectacular informative and well coordinated. We did the boat up and back. Big day but really worth the effort. Mabo was our driver and was very professional. I think this would be the best experience to have in Kununurra

          Ord River Discoverer Cruise with Sunset
          Great half day on the river with the Ord River Discoverer Cruise with Sunset. The drive out was a good chance to see the country, a stop at the homestead was educational and interesting (complete with a bower bird!) a quick look at the dam from the top and then the best bit - the journey down the river, some parts slow, some parts fast! An absolute abundance and variety of wildlife. Our guide was really knowledgeable and the cold drinks were very welcome. The finish at sunset was timed perfectly. Can definitely recommend the half day on the water with this particular cruise.

          Great fun afternoon cruise on the Ord
          We did the jjj cruise today. Mark (aka Mabo) was our skipper. The explorer with sunset was fantastic. Mabo the skipper had extensive local knowledge on the area, river, birdlife and crocs and made the cruise informative and very enjoyable. He also has a good rapport with others on the river, and is obviously a local identity and a real character. We would recommend this cruise to anyone with an interest in the river or the east Kimberley. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

        Ord River Cruise Experience with Riverside Lunch. Dylan was an amazing tour guide, boat operator, caterer, bus driver, botanist, wildlife expert & social organiser. He did it all to perfection. The boat was very comfortable, lunch was provided seamlessly on the riverbank & was delicious, explanations of the Ord/ Lake Argyle history fascinating.For we passengers, nothing was overlooked. I highly recommend Triple J tours & would tour again.

        A very worthwhile experience. Jeff?, the owner did an amazing job, driving the bus, captaining the boat, providing a comprehensive commentary, preparing and providing lunch and navigating us through some creek offshoots of the river.

        I did get a chance to photograph some nice birds along the way

        We did a 110 km boat cruise with afternoon tea on the river bank as part of a 10 day tour. Our skipper Jason was very informative and knowledgeable as well as entertaining. There were some exciting fast ride sections plus stops to look more closely at features. Afternoon tea was incredible with scones, jam and cream on the banks of the river. Viewing the Argyle Dam wall, which we later flew over , up close was really interesting. A great day.

        Boat ride was really great - lots of really interesting information. However, the bus driver who took us back to KNX at the end of the day, repeated a lot of the same facts that we got from the boat skipper. Just think that it would be good to co-ordinate what everyone is saying so we don't get the same information, pretty much verbatum, twice. Also, it would be nice to get a little bit of an itinerary, with approx timings, at the beginning of the day, just so we all knew what was going on. A lot of chit chat amongst the group about what the day entitled, and no-one really had any idea.

        other than that, it was a fantastic day, that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting KNX.

        Joey was a great boat capital and gave us a great commentary on the ride from kunnanura to lake Argyle.

        Triple J Tours run a great tour company. Booking was easy, they were attentive and followed us up so there would be no difficulties. They collected us from our accommodation and dropped us back at the conclusion of the tour.

        The first and major component of the tour was the cruise boat tour of Lake Kununurra and the Ord River to the Argyle dam. The cruise boat skipper and tour guide, Joey, was attentive, informative and a terrific representative of Triple J Tours.

        The second component was the coach back to town, and included a stopover at both the dam wall and the historical Argyle Homestead. Coach driver Hazel (like the nut) was considerate, careful, and keenly provided a great, informative commentary all the way back to town.

        This was a terrific tour experience and is highly recommended.

        Overall the tour was very good but there is room for improvement.
        The education stop was too long with some questions at the end coming from travellers who hadn’t been listening to the lecture.
        We got twenty minutes down the road on the bus when the bus driver was told to turn back and pick up passengers who had got on the wrong bus. A proper headcount and colour coded bracelet(like Lake Argyle tours) would have avoided that.
        Lunch was also very basic compared to Lake Argyle tours

        Ord River lunch cruise with Triple J was brilliant - Grant our host and boat driver was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

        This us really the only way to see the whole Ord river up-to the dam wall. Secluded river bank camp lunch and fast boat trip are sensational and highly recommended if you are in Kununurra
