Kayaks Adelaide

The world is a water park, and since 1950, Hobie have made the best rides.

They’ve surfed. They’ve sailed. And to each sport, they have brought flat-out, live-fast, have-fun, adventure. We’re bringing all of these to Adelaide adventurers and aquatic enthusiasts with each of our models of Hobie Kayaks. Phil Edwards

Each Hobie kayak is a seamless, roto-molded, polyethylene torpedo - sturdy, stable and swift. The result? Quality kayaks that effortlessly, gracefully, glide. Hobie kayaks even have a closed-deck design with self-draining scuppers and seats to keep you dry. And not only are Hobie Kayaks easy to paddle, they're easy to pull with sure-grip handles both fore and aft. For those rare moments when you're not paddling, most models offer on-deck paddle storage. The molded-in cup holders bring beverage service to the main cabin for a touch of added class.

Of course, they have also brought something brilliantly new to the sport of kayaking: Pedals. Each of the Hobie Mirage models has the patented MirageDrive pedaling system. It will take you further faster, with a huge emphasis on fun.

Start kayaking feet first with a faster, smoother, more powerful kayak experience with Hobie at Adelaide’s Binks Marine. View our full range of Hobie products below.

The Power of Hobie Mirage Drive

· The MirageDrive is easy to use, quiet and creates no splash.

· Leaves your hands free for fishing, photography or holding refreshments.

· Your feet rest naturally on the pedals for quick, effortless, back-and-forth motions.

· Pedalling is much faster and more efficient than paddling. The large muscles in your legs produce more powerful propulsion versus using your arms on a paddled kayak.

· No annoying dripping water from a paddle.

· Easily removable for transport and storage.

· Self-cleaning mechanism, resisting wear from sand and other particles.

· Durable construction in injection-molded plastics and stainless steel fittings.

· Adjustable to accommodate for a wide range of pedaler’s heights.

Hobie Mirage Drive


The simple kayak was born perfect. Light, nimble, and easy to use, kayaks paddled through the ages virtually unchanged. An old design maxim says that perfection is achieved when there is nothing left to remove. The Hobie design team response? Get rid of the paddle.

Welcome to the world of the HobieMirageDrive®. The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the pedal. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever. Two pedals drive a pair of underwater fins – much like a penguin’s flippers. Whether snapping up to speed with a quick burst or steadily covering expanses of water, the MirageDrive allows effortless freedom and function.
