The Hobie Adventure Island is the Hobie Adventure Kayak with an Island trimaran and 16' mast/sail kit, making it the ultimate Kayak Sailing craft.

The Hobie Adventure Island is a very universal craft. It can be used for sailing as shown above, a platform using one Amas with the Adventure Kayak or the Hobie Adventure Kayak can be used on its own.
