We booked the morning cruise rather than the sunset cruise as it was cheaper for our family of 5 and we really just wanted to get out on the lake. We drove out to Lake Argyle from Kununurra and waited at the store for the bus to take us down to the lake. The bus crosses the dam wall then goes down a steep (13%) grade to get to the edge of the lake.

We all popped on the boat and headed out into the lake. The driver provided commentary as we travelled around, seeing the dam wall and listening to the story of it's creation, seeing wallaroos, crocodiles, jabiru, pelicans, feeding archer fish and cat fish, listening to the history of the dam and the area around it. Tea, coffee and biscuits were available to help ourselves to, and we were free to move around the boat a bit to see things more clearly. When we found fresh water crocodiles basking on the shore of one of the islands, we went in close to get a good look and were able to see one slide into the water. The archer fish were fun to feed as we watched them shoot water into the air trying to catch the bread we were feeding them.

The lake was incredible to look at from every angle. We only covered a portion of the lake and were constantly reminded of how big it is. The islands and surrounding ranges are beautiful and fascinating, and the animal life is varied.

On our way back to shore we stopped in one of the deepest parts of the lake (23m) and had a swim, which was incredible. Pool noodles were available to float on and most people jumped in the water for the experience.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and were so thrilled with everything we saw, heard and did on the lake. The commentary was excellent - informative, friendly and entertaining.

This 2-3 hour cruise takes you past the huge dam wall that controls water levels. Varying in depth between 15-40m, Lake Argyle provides a home to 300 species of water birds and is classified as a Ramsay site. And also boasts 20-30 species of fish and 3 species of turtles. The lake is classified an inland sea and it feels like that when you're out in the middle and go in for a dip! It is exciting and beautiful and all topped off with champagne and nibbles which can be served to you while you are in the water! The cruise is topped off with watching the sunset. A glorious place and certainly well worthwhile.

Best sunset cruise. What a great experience of a beautiful place.
The chance to swim was a bonus and we certainly enjoyed beer and bubbles at sunset on the boat as well as plenty of nibbles. The crew were very knowledgeable and friendly.
