Kayak Fishing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Hobie Kayaks revolutionized the kayaking and fishing industries with the incredible MirageDrive pedal propulsion system, which enables you to navigate your kayak hands free.
Hands free kayaking + a fishing rod makes the Hobie Angler Kayaks the perfect vessel for a Kayak Fishing Experience, particularly in the shallow soundside waterways of the Outer Banks. Your guide will take you and up to 3 others on a fully equipped 4 hour charter to the locations off the beaten path so that you can get better access to fish, that you would otherwise not know how to find.
We will fish for Drum, Speckled Trout, flounder and many other species of fish. This Hobie Kayaking Fishing experience is perfect for anyone interested in fishing. Complete beginners and experienced anglers are sure to enjoy this experience, and if you’ve ever considered purchasing a Hobie Angler Kayak, what better way to “drive it before you buy it” with the assurance of an experienced and knowledgeable guide.
