Hobie Adventure Island
Always wanted to go sailing but don’t know how? The Hobie Adventure Island is a foolproof way to get some sailing experience!
The Adventure Island is a single-person sailing kayak. It is propelled by either MirageDrive or wind – or both! The main sail is roller-furling with battens. It is easily maneuverable with rope holding cleats for the not-so-savvy knot tiers. Between the wind and the MirageDrive, this kayak can reach speeds as high as 11 knots (~12 mph).
The two amas on either side of the boat prevent it from flipping over (though they are retractable and removable, if desired). We recommend crew members spend some time in the harbor becoming acclimated to the sailing system before heading out on Lake Michigan.
Rental includes: life vest, adjustable seating, MirageDrive, and instructions.
Cost: $89.95 for 60 min
