Hobie Adventure Island


The Hobie Adventure Island features the usual Hobie equipment, adjustable high back padded seat, water bottle holder, fingertip rudder control, Mirage drive system, twist and seal hatches, large bow hatch and a bungee covered rear tank well. All are easily accessible and add to the versatility of this sit on top kayak.


New upgrades, such as a new rudder control system and better lifting handles (compliments of the Tandem Island) make the boat even easier to use on and off the water. The Hobie Adventure really does live up to its name. This kayak comes with everything you need to start seriously exploring and enjoying trips along the coastline..


 If you are into a spot of fishing, the Adventure comes with fishing rod holders and plenty of 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 is certainly comfortable enough for extended periods on the water around East Anglia. Another feature of the Adventure is inserts moulded into the hulls which enable an Adventure to be upgraded to an Adventure Island creating an even more stable sea fishing platform or allowing you to sail around the UK in style.
