Fishability Albany has been running in the region for four years now. The team of volunteers led by Fishability Coordinator JK Backhouse deliver a weekly fishing activity on Friday mornings at Emu Point between 9.30am and 11.30am.
In 2018, Fishability Albany, in partnership with Sailability and Princess Royal Sailing Club, introduced a boat activity. ‘The Responder’ boat activity is held Friday fortnightly and is open to any person with special needs. There are limited numbers, so booking is imperative.
All fishing activities are at NO cost to participants. Fishability provide all the fishing equipment. Our volunteers are all police cleared and hold current Working with Children Cards.
All of our activities are SunSmart and we encourage all participants, support workers and volunteers to adhere to our SunSmart policy and wear suitable clothing for the conditions. //fishability.org.au/policies-and-publications/.
We require participants to be a minimum of 1.2 metres high for the vessel activities and we recommend that participants are a minimum of 1.2 metres high for the jetty activities.
Please bring suitable clothing, coats and hats and enclosed shoes, for the weather conditions plus a drink and snack if you like.
Bookings are required, but don't hesitate as they fill very quickly. You will receive a SMS message 48 hours prior as a reminder.

While Fishability, and its volunteers, employ safe fishing practices, there are inherent risks associated with fishing that are out of the control of Fishability and its volunteers. By registering for fishing activities, participants assume their own responsibility to those risks inherent with the activity.
