LAKE ARGYLE CRUISES is the original tour company on Lake Argyle. We offer a range of scenic cruises catering for individual travellers as well as tour groups. Our fleet of purpose built vessels offer comfortable seating and unobstructed views that leave many customers exclaiming words such as “amazing”, “breathtaking”, and “unbelievable”.

Lake Argyle is Australia’s largest expanse of fresh water. It boasts over 26 species of native fish and supports a commercial fishery as well as the newly established Aquaculture industry.

Latest research estimates up to 25,000 Johnstone River Fresh Water crocodiles inhabit Lake Argyle, Rock Wallabies thrive in rocky crevices close to the water’s edge, Eros (Wallaroos) on the islands have adapted to feed on the lakes aquatic plants.

We specialise in observing wildlife, but due to the nature of wild animals it cannot be guaranteed you will see all that is described in this brochure.

At Lake Argyle village above the Main Dam you will find motel style cabins, shop, bar, restaurant and a caravan park. Drop in and try the local catch, “Silver Cobbler” delivered fresh daily. Nearby is the Historical Durack Family Homestead Museum.

The inland sea was created in 1971, by damming the mighty Ord River, forming a storage reservoir to supply one of the country’s largest and most ambitious irrigation schemes. What was once “Argyle Downs”, a million acre cattle station, is now an immense body of water amid a largely untamed and rugged wilderness in the remote East Kimberley region of Western Australia. Aptly named “Lake Argyle”, this majestic waterway can at times encompass and area of more than 2000 km2, a volume of water equivalent to 54 Sydney harbours. With its ever changing moods and landscapes it has developed into a unique eco-system, home to an amazing array of wildlife. There is no better was to capture all of this outstanding beauty than to take a cruise with Lake Argyle Cruises. We offer a selection of tours catering for the individual traveller as well as large tour groups. Specialised charters such as bird watching, bush walking and exploration can be arranged with prior notice.

Lake Argyle is Australia's largest inland lake one cannot experience it from the shore. If you can't afford a flight over it then you must take this cruise on it. Great commentary, drinks, nibbles and a swim are included. Best one is the sunset cruise.

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! Relaxing cruise on Lake Argyle with informative commentary, beautiful scenery, and an opportunity for a swim watching the beautiful sunset... and of course, whilst enjoying champagne and cheese from a floating platter in the water. Well worth it. Note that the famous infinity pool is actually at the caravan park adjacent to... More

Took the Sunset Cruise with Matt as our wonderful guide on Easter Saturday. Fabulous from start to finish. Staff were most helpful and cheerful. Cruise was excellent and Matt's knowledge of the whole Lake Argyle area was exceptional. Highly recommend.

Our skipper Matt was welcoming and his commentary during the cruise was informative and humorous. While the sun was setting in the west the moon was rising in the east we enjoyed a glass... More

A must see words do not do this place justice. My 13 yo was so excited to hold a live wild crocodile. The skipper was very informative too.
