The 12-foot Mirage Passport takes you where you want to go with ease and world-class authority with pedal propulsion. When you’re not relaxing in the Passport’s breathable mesh seat, a wider cockpit area with EVA floor padding provides a stable platform for standing and stretching your legs or casting a lure. There’s plenty of real estate to stash equipment on the bow or stern cargo areas and more below deck access through the center 8” Twist-n-Seal hatch. Anglers will be happy that the Passport 12 has a transducer cavity and scupper for simple install of your favorite fishfinder and a Power-Pole® Micro bracket indent to mount your favorite shallow water anchor. Additional features include steering system with stowable rudder, two fishing rod holders, accessory tracks, and under seat and gunnel tackle storage.
I have always wanted a Hobie kayak but never thought I could afford one. I definitely knew they were some quality kayaks with great pedal drives though. When I saw this passport is their newer budget kayak that I could afford, I went for it. I have never used a pedal kayak before, or any fancy kayaks in general, but when I finally hit the river it was insane! It's very stable, the drive is almost effortless, the rudder and steering are great, and it's all built very well! I love it! The only problem is it is hugely heavy, like double the weight of a normal sit in cheap 12' kayak. So you almost always need help.
Otherwise, it's definitely a huge hit for me!
