Fishability commenced operations in Perth in 2003.
The Perth program is divided into:
The jetty programs are delivered on a weekly basis at platforms throughout the Perth metro area both north and south of the river. The jetties have been identified as being fully accessible and safe for our participants.
The boat program is delivered twice a week from Royal Perth Yacht Club, Crawley https://www.rpyc.com.au/ The purposely built pontoon can accommodate up to ten participants, support workers and crew (dependent on number of wheelchairs).
Note: that the boat departs at 10:00am sharp (arrival by 9:45am please). Unfortunately we cannot accommodate any late arrivals.
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.
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 essential. Click on “Book an Activity” to make a booking.
If the activity is to be cancelled due to inclement weather, you will receive an email the day before.
