Lake Argyle Cruises - Sunset Magic Cruise

If you come to Kununurra you must get on a cruise at Lake Argyle. The Sunset Magic Cruise was beyond my expectation I have been to many sunset cruises before in different locations but at Lake Argyle it feels like magical with vast amount of water in the lake as far as eyes can see, the stillness of the water, the reflection of colourful red rock cliffs surrounding and the sunset! As I observed everyone was very quiet during the sunset as if they have been taken by the magical moment of natural beauty.

I saw a few grey wallabies living on a cliff one of them has a baby pop out its head from mother pouch.

I saw many archerfish spitting water to a piece of bread I was holding. It is amazing how accurate the fish can aim to the bread. There are many catfish at the bottom where the water is shallow you can see right through clear water.

I saw freshwater crocodile elegantly swimming pass by this is the first time I see crocodile up close and be able captured its movement with joy. Freshwater crocodile is harmless so there is nothing to fear. The animals around here seem to live very peaceful life due to remote area and far from human interference.

There is a few opportunities to swim during the cruise with refreshing warm water. There are complimentary glass of champagne, beer, softdrinks, coffee and variety of biscuits. Life commentary during the cruise also good give history of Kimberley region and the lake. The crews also excellent with friendly smiles and helpful.

The sunset cruise is well over 3 hours that give me plenty of time to soak in the magnificent experiences that I won't forget. It is such a peaceful and romantic place even though for a solo traveller!

This six hour tour from Kununurra was an amazing experience. From the moment we were picked up at our accommodation until the evening when we were dropped off, everything was just perfect. Our bus driver Tom, gave a very interesting commentary during the 70km trip from Kununurra to Lake Argyle. On the way we stopped in at the Argyle Homestead, the former home of the Durack family, the pioneers of the cattle industry in the Kimberley region. It was really interesting to see how they lived and to read the history of how the cattle industry started in the region. Once we arrived at Lake Argyle and boarded the boat for the cruise, our skipper Greg was a fountain of knowledge of the area, the wildlife including birds, angler (spitting) fish, fresh water crocodiles and the lake itself. He delivered informative commentary with humour, and was very happy to take questions or stop for photos at any point during the trip. Apart from the spectacular scenery, the highlight of the trip was swimming in the warm water of the lake as the sun was setting, whilst sipping a glass of bubbly (or soft drink). An experience never to be forgotten. This tour exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Kununurra.

After being picked up from Kununurra we were driven to Lake Argyle and given a very interesting commentary on the history of Kununurra and the Kimberly region. The boat trip on the lake was fantastic and included beautiful scenery and the local wildlife. We spotted rock wallabies, freshwater crocs and fed the archer fish. The cruise ended with drinks and nibbles watching the sunset and a swim in the lake. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Kununurra.

I rarely post 1-2 star reviews and only when they are richly deserved. We booked a Combo cruises package through Lake Argyle Cruises comprising a lunchtime river cruise and an afternoon sunset cruise. This review may be at odds with other reviews for this operator as from our experience it appears they run two different standards of Sunset Tours. The lunchtime river cruise was run by Triple J tours and was a five star experience with an extremely competent boat driver/tour guide and an excellent lunch at a semi-permanent lunch spot on the river bank.  On the river cruise there was a mix of APT tourists and independent travellers.    Triple J transported us to Durack Homestead where Lake Argyle Cruises took over and the best part of the day was over. The independent travellers had limited time at the homestead (join the toilet queue and grab an ice cream) and were then transported in a bus which had seen better days to their base in Lake Argyle township.  Here we spent some time in an area which could perhaps be mistaken for the Lake Argyle base of Steptoe and Son.  It seemed we were to be parked there while the group tour sped past to take exclusive use of the more modern boat you may have seen in the promotional material. The Tour Group disappeared off into the sunset and after that the independent travellers were transferred to a larger but equally well worn bus to be deposited at a vessel which could perhaps be best described as matching the state of the buses.   The boat driver/tour guide did indicate it was his first trip on his own and made a valiant effort to remember the standard commentary but regularly had to refer to his notes.  Lake Argyle proper and the sunset are certainly not tired and well worn but for us the Lake Argyle cruise experience was.  Certainly the standard of the Sunset Tour we experienced did not live up to our expectations or other reviews. It is likely that local tour operators are going to be dependent on Australian residents for some time to come but if they are unable to deliver a consistent quality product to those with a wide range of tourist experience it is a negative for the industry as a whole. In hindsight we should have done only the Triple J Tour and finished the day on a positive note.  If the Lake Argyle principal vessel and experienced guide is booked for the exclusive use of a tour group you may wish to consider other options. Buyer beware as we had high expectations for this cruise based on other reviews and certainly for us it was one of the more disappointing experiences of a 6 week tour through WA and the NT.

Thank you very much for your honest feedback and one day in future we may be able to buy new boats, new buses and our skippers who are hard to get will be more experienced guides now the season has progressed.

Was a great day, we actually did the Ord River and Lake Argyle Sunset Cruise Combo which departed from our Kununurra hotel. First up Lucas from Triple J Tours took us down the Ord River for 55kms showing us the best of the wildlife (freshwater crocs, birds, etc) and scenery. We had our delicious meat, salad and rolls lunch on the banks of the Ord River. This part of the tour finished up at Lake Argyle at the power station where a bus picked us up for a photo opportunity between Lake Argyle and the Ord River then down to another boat on Lake Argyle. Greg took us through different sections of Lake Argyle, just before the sun was setting we had an opportunity to swim and people in the water could have a beer, sparkling wine or cool drinks with dips and chips floated amongst everyone on an esky lid - only in Australia. the sunset photos were beautiful and we were driven back to Kununurra a great day out. Please note no COVID requirements for this tour, they did everything in accordance with WA laws.

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise on Lake argyle. Th pick-up from our accommodation in Kununurra was on time and we were taken via the Durack Homestead Museum on our way to the our lake cruise. Our skipper and guide for the cruise, Greg, was knowledgable and entertaining. Our tour took us around to various parts of the lake to see rock wallabies, freshwater crocodiles, fish and spiders. The afternoon was finished of with a sunset dip in the lake with a drink and nibbles.

Highly recommended tour to experience Lake Argyle. From booking, pick up, tour to drop off absolutely well run & highly recommended tour. Bruce confirmed our booking & picked us up as expected at our hotel. He gave very interesting & informative commentary on the highlights of the drive from Kununurra to Lake Argyle. We stopped at the Durack Homestead en route which was interesting. Bruce is a lovely guy, very welcoming & hospitable - thx Bruce. Our tour was conduced by Greg. Greg was very welcoming of guests & gave us an outstanding experience of the Lake. The swim at the end in the Lake with the "Freshies" was awesome. Greg really knows his stuff & was able to give us an informative, interesting & enjoyable tour of the Lake. I would highly recommend this tour whilst in Kununurra / Lake Argyle. Lake Argyle needs to be seen to be believed & I would recommend Greg for this experience. Thx Lake Argyle Cruises for a great day on the Lake & experience.

A beautiful, relaxing afternoon. Greg was the perfect host. A Lake Argyle local of over a couple of decades Greg imparted his local knowledge with friendliness and professionalism. The bus trip to and from Kununurra was very comfortable and informative by a lovely driver.

This is a fantastic Cruise and worth every cent. Do not hesitate to book the sunset cruise. Simply magic. Also a massive thank you to Monique who assisted us with rearranging our booking so we could get to the lake after a last minute issue with our Motorhome saw us unable to drive to the lake as previously planned. She saved us from having to cancel and really went above and beyond. This dedication to customer service continued out into the water where our skipper and owner (Dave) really added depth to story of the lake and the history of the area. Thank you! We will be back.

This was a lovely way to end our holiday. A short informative bus ride from Kununurra then a few hours floating round Lake Argyle. Close encounters with rock wallabies, archer fish and crocs. Glorious sunset with the rocks changing colour every minute. Culminating in a much needed swim with in-lake catering, champagne and dips. Don’t miss this experience
