The Hobie Adventure Island is three boats in one!
Without the sail, amas and Mirage drive unit it’s a wonderful paddling kayak. With the Mirage drive unit only it’s our fastest single Mirage pedaling kayak. With the sail and ama package it’s a unique new boat unlike anything on the market! What the sail and ama package adds to the Adventure Island is speed and more speed. With its huge 57 sq ft sail the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island is light-years faster than any sailing kayak.
The most unique feature about the sailing package is that the sail furls, or rolls up. As the wind speed increases the operator, from the seat while they’re sailing, can furl the sail up and make it smaller. This actually makes the boat faster (because of the reduced heel and drag) in heavy winds. The 9’ beam with the amas out makes the boat super easy to learn to sale because the boat is virtually un-tippable! In fact it’s so stable you can stand up in the boat and if you wanted to actually fly fish or spin cast. The Hobie Adventure Island is an entirely new water toy that might best be described as the Harley of the water. Get on one and go!
