Hobie Passport 10.5Hobie Compass
Hobie Passport 12
The big brother to the Passport 12 ideal for accommodating more cargo on board or a heavier crew. The Passport 12 is a simpler version of a Hobie Mirage Drive Kayak with a few less features which make it saleable at a great price point.
The hull shape on the Passport 12 makes the kayak really stable and ideal for first time kayakers, thanks to the Mirage Drive the kayak can cover surprising distances making it great for both touring and a spot of fishing. It also allows for plenty of gear to be loaded on board, there are several storage areas on the kayak including a rear cargo area with bungees, a bow storage area with bungees and a handy twist and stow storage hatch just in front of the seat. The kayak tracks really well through the water and the steering control is easy to use with one hand.
The raised mesh seat is adjustable and will keep you dry and comfortable all day long. The kayak comes with the Mirage Drive GT (Glide Technology) Drive with kick up fins. The fins kick-up whenever they hit an underwater obstacle and then redeploy once you start to pedal again. When folded into their upright position there is a recess in the hull to protect the fins when you are launching and recovering the kayak. This drive is tough and easy to maintain as well as smooth to use. The drive can be adjusted easily on board to accommodate different leg lengths from a approx 7 year old child to a 6 foot plus adult.
We have been using this durable kayak for 3 years as a rental kayak and we have found it to be ideal for this purpose, the shape of the hull even allows for the hulls to be easily stacked on top of each other.
Useful fishing extras are 2 flush mount rod holders in the back of the kayak, the accessory mounting tracks that run down each side of the footwell (an ideal spot to install a fishfinder) there is also a transducer cavity making installation of the fishfinder straight forward. Remember any additional accessories such as electrics are installed for free on new kayaks when purchased from us.

MIRAGE DRIVE GT Kick-Up
For Hands-Free Performance
The Mirage Drive GT delivers an ultra smooth ride. The GT stands for Glide Technology which means a smoother and more efficient movement of the drive. For 2021 the Hobie Passport models now come with Kick-up fins so you never need to worry about underwater obstacles again. On impact with an underwater obstacle the fins automatically kick-up and then they redeply as soon as you start pedaling again.
