Hobie Mirage Passport 10.5 Fishing Kayak

The Passport makes a great first boat or second kayak for kids

Hobie answered the competition of lower-priced pedal kayaks with a new thermoformed Mirage Passport that is lighter and less expensive with the proven performance of their classic ST pedal system.

They rigged the Passport with a new, lightweight mesh frame seat that’s quick to remove.

The simple steering system is controlled by a single rod attached to a rudder control knob. A couple flushmount rod holders behind the seat make the Mirage Passport suitable for fishing.

The Mirage Passport makes a great first boat or second kayak for kids and family members.

At only $1359, it’s easy to add a Mirage Passport to the fleet.

“Thank God my dad wasn’t a podiatrist,” jokes Ric about following in the footsteps of a famous outdoor writer. After graduating from Radford University and serving two years in Russia with the Peace Corps, Ric returned to Virginia Beach and started writing for The Fisherman magazine, where his dad was editor. When the kayak fishing scene exploded, Ric was among the first to get onboard. His 2007 book, The Complete Kayak Fisherman is one of the first tomes to introduce anglers to paddle fishing and hundreds of articles and seminars have brought countless anglers into the fold. When he’s not chasing every fish that swims, Ric teaches English at a school for at-risk teens.


  1. I’ve been reading a lot about this boat and trying to hunt one down in Canada, but no luck yet. I see your title about it being a first kayak or for kids and this could be misleading for some. I’m an experienced kayak angle using a Hobie tandem Outfitter. I want a smaller, single seater boat that’s easy to carry, load in the back of my truck, or cart pull to a large stocked lake a few hundred meters from my house. The PA/Outback/Compass are all larger/heavier than I want. Seeing this Hobie will keep me with this brand for a 10.5 ft boat. I’ll add fishing accessories along with a 180 drive to really make it my own. The plus that it’s significant less is another bonus.

  2. That looks great but I am more interested in what’s behind you, where can I find information about that ? It looks like a fishing paddle board or something
