This is amazing and beautiful video by Rick Rosenthal (of National Geographic underwater video fame) shows Pilot Whales and spinner Dolphin in crystal clear water off Hawaii. Rick has been using our Hobie Mirage kayaks to get closer to marine life without spooking them.

That's the one thing that has AMAZED me about the Mirage Drive boats. My video skills and camera equipment are nowhere near as good as Rick's, but we caught these videos of Beavers when nobody else could even get close, simply because we had Mirage Drive boats. Not to mention the moose, and other wildlife that I was able to get so close to.

The Mirage Drive really is amazing!

I wasn't using a great camera back then, but you can get the idea.





This next video was taken a year later at a completely different park



For this last video, I get a little shaky, that's because I was much closer than the video makes it look, and I wanted to be sure that if that moose started coming after me, that I was ready to motor!! (or should I say Mirage!!)
