A 41-year-old spearfisherman has been found dead in waters north of the Kimberley town of Broome.

Police were notified just after 5.30pm on Wednesday that the Kununurra man had failed to return by midday after going to the beach north of Lombadina Bay on the Dampier Peninsula.

A land, sea and air search was carried out, and the man was found drowned close to where he departed from just after midnight.

Police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the man's death and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
