2023 Hobie Mirage Compass

Simplicity defined, the Mirage Compass is powered by the MirageDrive 180 pedal system and Kick-Up Fins. Patented Kick-Up Fin Technology takes the worry out of kayaking in shallow, structure-filled waters by automatically retracting upon impact. Experience forward and reverse pedal propulsion with Hobie's Square Tip Fins.

New for 2023 is an anodized aluminum alloy frame seat offering incredible comfort, durability, and breathability with mono mesh and ripstop nylon construction. The Compass offers maximum stability and an oversized cockpit and flat deck for standing. A sharp turning radius makes this fishing kayak nimble in tight quarters, yet able to speed over open water in a stealthy fashion.

Kayak fishing features include pre-installed rod holders, H-Track accessory mounts, and a transducer cavity ready for you to install a Lowrance® fishfinder. For a stealthy look, upgrade to the Compass Camo package that is outfitted with Kick-Up Turbo Fins and comes in Camo color.

It’s never too late!

I LOVE my new 2023 Hobie Compass! Yes, the cup holder sucks and yes, it’s pretty bare bones and requires additional investment, but that’s also what I really love about it.
It’s an opportunity for me to spend my money on the accessories and enhancements I care about for my style of fishing.
So far I’ve taken it in salt- and freshwater and it holds up really well! It’s a very stable platform and is even comfortable to stand up in when fishing.
Some people complain about the seat but I find it very comfortable, even for hours on the water, and I have not noticed it sliding from side to side.
The Mirage Drive is fantastic and being able to go on reverse is a must when fishing!
In both saltwater and freshwater it allows you to really get into the shallows on the flats, and getting through seagrass or hydrilla is very easy. It’s why I didn’t opt for a propeller drive which run deeper and get gunk stuck in them. The fin drive is the way to go for me.
I wish there was another H-track towards the back of the kayak but I can always add it later if needed.
In summary, this is a GREAT kayak and well worth the investment! I also appreciate the fantastic service provided by Eco Fishing Shop, and the shipping to my house in Florida - while taking long at about 12 business days - got a kayak delivered to my door in near-pristine condition. I couldn’t be happier with my experience overall!

Hobie Compass - Great Kayak, but needs functional Cup Holder and Storage

Great Kayak! Very stable and moves through the water smoothly. I also love to use REVERSE for braking as I arrive at my fishing spot. Cup holder design and storage is poor (they expect you to buy accessories to make them usable). For the price, Hobie should provide functional storage and cup holders.
