$8,299 USD MSRP

Looking for a super-fun multisport boat for two? Meet the Hobie Mirage® Tandem Island.You can rent or buy the Hobie zTandem Island kayak today at our waterfront kayak sales and rental center near the English Village in Lake Havasu.

In its most elemental form, the Tandem Island is a super-fast, two-person kayak. But attach the aka crossbeams, the ama floats and the two-piece carbon fiber rig and sailing kit (all included), and you and your partner will be flying across the water, powered by a roller-furling, boomless mainsail. Both cockpits have steering and sail-control lines, making the Tandem Island ideal for partners of all abilities. And the boat’s generous storage space and carrying capacity means that your adventure potential is huge.
