Return to the tradition and simplicity of a paddle-powered kayak with the innovative Hobie Lanai.

The Lanai combines the best attributes of smaller kayaks, including maneuverability, acceleration, and skinny-water access, with the stability usually found in far bigger boats. At only 9-feet, the Lanai is ideally suited to shorter paddlers, but it also delivers a full-value experience to taller kayakers as well. Best yet, the Lanai is a snap to put atop a car, on a boat’s deck, or even a bicycle trailer, giving you serious versatility.
