Hobie Adventure Island
With its long waterline and sleek hull, the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island will slice through the water whether you are paddling, pedalling or sailing it.
With the 2 ama's or outriggers once the sail is up the adventure island can really get up some speed. The amas fold easily in to the sides of the main kayak hull at the push of a button to make storing and transporting your Adventure Island so much easier. Alternatively you can quite simply detach the ama's entirely, leave them behind and just use the Adventure Island hull as a fast solo Mirage Drive kayak.
The cockpit area of the Adventure Island features the super-comfortable Vantage CT seating system which gives 4 way adjustment as well as the revolutionary Hobie 180 Mirage Drive now with Glide Technology for easier and more efficient pedalling. The 180 Mirage Drive also now has the ability to switch into reverse mode at the pull of a toggle. All this offers less resistance and more effciency as you spend less effort pedalling and concentrate more on enjoying yourself. You still get all the usual Hobie equipment, water bottle holder, fingertip rudder control, twist and seal hatches, large bow hatch and a bungee covered rear tank well which are easily accessible and add to the versatility of this sit on top kayak.
If you are into a spot of fishing, the Mirage Adventure Island comes fully loaded with rod holders and is completely Lowrance fish finder ready allowing you to fit your Lowrance transducer into the underside of the hull utilising the specially moulded scupper hole. The Hobie Adventure Island also includes ample space for kit. Camping is no problem with the spacious bow hatch and rear tank well able to carry larger items, and the Hobie Adventure Island is certainly comfortable enough for extended periods on the water around East Anglia with the fully adjustable Vantage CT seat.
Adding a Trampoline Kit gives you much more versatility if you are looking to get the best out of the Adventure Island when sailing out as sea of on larger bodies of inland open water.
