Simply put, the Hobie kayak model for rent on this page - the Pro Angler 12 - can make even a professional fisherman drool. Stable enough to stand up in; a seat as comfortable as a Lazy-Boy; and all the right touches to make your day out fishing a lot of fun whether you catch anything or not. While you can fish from any of our rental kayaks, this is the best one if you want to get serious about it. Equipped with the hands-free Mirage Drive system, you can quickly get over to your favorite fishing hole and drop a line. Gain access to shallow areas a motorized boat can't even think about.
But, this is one rental item we can't ship - you have to come to our outdoors store in Tempe or LAke Havasu Arizona to rent a kayak. And it's a bit more involved than renting a tent, so there's more paperwork to explain it all. Or you can just call us for the details. But once you do, what an experience! There are kayaks, and then there are Hobie Kayaks. It's like, I really love my little Subaru CrossTrek, but a Ferrari would be a little better. And so it is when you compare a Hobie to a 'regular' kayak. Engineering, power, tracking, stability - all are noticeably better in a Hobie. These kayaks are sit-on-top models, which are great for lakes or slow rivers. Anything over Class 2 speed water is not recommended. Feel free to give us a call at 480-348-8917 to discuss the best option for you.
You will need a truck or trailer to transport this one away from the shop, and take responsibility for a lot of expensive moving parts. Not recommended for beginner kayakers.
Hobie offers many kayak options, and we rent a few representative models from our store to match with the type of water adventure you're planning. Feel free to give us a call to discuss the best option for you, or see below for brief information on each model we offer:

Rental Plans and Rates
Our kayak rental-term options include:
24-Hour rate: Just like it sounds
Weekend rate: Pickup after 10am Friday and return Monday morning
Two/Three weekdays: Monday thru Thursday rentals
The base price listed at checkout is the "24-hour" rate, and just below that the drop-down list shows the pricing of the other options. Each rental of the Pro Angler includes a paddle and life vest. We also do longer term rentals; just call and we'll handle it on the phone. There are some restrictions on availability, and you'll need a way to transport the kayak(s) and maybe a buddy to help. For all the fine print, see a PDF of our rental rates and policies.
We also have many useful kayaking accessories for rent and sale, and it's lots of fun to combine kayaking with camping -perhaps up around the Mogollon Rim lakes northeast of Scottsdale. See our full selection of camping gear options.
