The kayaks we use

The Hobie Oasis Mirage Drive Pedal Kayaks we use are nothing but the best here at Seal Kayak Kaikōura
Boasting the ability to pedal around the Kaikōura peninsula hands-free, these amazing kayaks give our customers the ultimate wildlife and scenic viewing experience possible. Users can navigate around whilst having access to cameras and phones at all times, meaning you will never miss that all-important shot.

Long, narrow, and lightweight. These design elements define the Hobie Mirage Oasis Tandem Kayak and give this kayak surprising performance-minded qualities, such as quick acceleration and impressive hull speed, without sacrificing utility or hauling capacity.

The Hobie Mirage Oasis Tandem features three enclosed stowage areas and one large on-deck cargo area, dual steering controls, a roomy cockpit with dual MirageDrives, and the ability to go anywhere, anytime. You’ll be amazed at how well the Oasis performs.
