Established in 2016, Able Angler’s mission was to facilitate social inclusion groups that centred around fishing for people living with a disability and/or a mental illness. Reel Opportunities for Real People. Our slogan says it all…

Since our beginnings, we have grown to include more amazing experiences and adventures for our 400+ registered participants. To name but a few, we offer social inclusion activities, community participation activities, disability fishing groups, circus trips, V8 super car rides, jet ski rides, Moreton Island Tours, short term accommodation (STA), disability support workers/carers and so much more.

The activities we offer are designed to assist participants to live a better life, to gain confidence and to enjoy activities they thought may not have been possible. It is a fun, safe and encouraging environment. Everyone is welcome aboard!

We service Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Logan, Ipswich, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Far North Queensland. Able Anglers services are 100% insured.

Our service costs can be funded by Fee-For-Service, NDIS and My Aged Care. We are proud to be the longest running disability fishing service in Queensland and do not mind boasting that we are a multi award winning mental health respite service too!

Please join us for one or more of our fantastic trips below!

Fishing 1 on 1 Session. Our Reel Instructor, a participant and support worker get to spend up to 3 hours together for some awesome mateship!

Fishing Group. Our groups are designed to focus on mental health respite, social interaction and community participation in a fun environment without focus on personal challenges. Our services are provided on stable platforms at locations that take into account mobility and stability of our participants.

Moreton Island Day Trips. A day on a catamaran cruising the amazing waters of Moreton Bay and surrounding Moreton Island. See the famous shipwrecks and maybe some dolphins, dugongs or whales!

Deep Sea Fishing Charters. These trips are not for the faint hearted, they are designed with the maximum adrenalin that can be filled in 1 day!

Supported Day Trips. This service is custom designed to participants goals and dreams. We facilitate some of the most amazing day trips, including Australia Zoo, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, hot air ballooning, sky diving, 4WDing, boating, bushwalking and more. See our website for the latest events.

STA I Respite Support. Short Term Accommodation is accessible for short periods of time when a participant’s usual supports and/or accommodation cannot be accessed.  Short term accommodation offers opportunities for people with a disability/mental illness to meet new people and try new activities, whilst allowing carers to take a break.

What some of our participants have to say…

“Fantastic service, it has helped me get back out there and grab my rod. The crew are friendly and helpful and hands on where needed if you or a family love fishing and want to get out in the sunshine, I highly recommend giving Able Anglers a call and organising with them to give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.”  – Ken. G

“It is the 2nd time my partner has gone out, I went the first time. I would recommend Able Anglers to any Support Coordinators that are looking for something amazing and different. Best days ever, so many activities. Good people.. My partner loves it and looks forward to all their activities.” – Theresa Flynn

“Able Anglers took me on respite leave to Cooloongatta. Despite the bad weather for the first couple of days I had a great time. The best thing about it was the freedom to do the activities at my own pace. If I wanted to do something Steve made sure it happened. I ate like a King eating whatever I wanted. The accommodation was brilliant ( 5 star ), and it was great having my own room. I would recommend Able Anglers to anyone with a Disability looking to get away for everyday stress and try some new things in new places whilst living like a King/Queen. The hardest part was readjusting to my everyday routine upon returning home.” – AiB Beats Primo Best Beats for Lease

We love what we do and are certain you will, too!
