We decided to try kayaking during spring break to see if it was something that we would enjoy as a family. The owner was very helpful and made sure that we were prepared as novices for our water adventure. We rented two tandem kayaks and had a GREAT time. There was a wide variety of scenery and wildlife from the... More

Kurt guided us on a tour of the Clam Bayou Nature Preserve. We are not kayakers but he made it easy for us. We launched at the Gulfport Marina and were accompanied by a dolphin into Boca Ciega Bay. It is a short distance to the estuary, where many stands of mangrove trees form an ideal habitat for wildlife to... More

We rented 2 two person kayaks. We did a 4 hour rental for $55/kayak. Work is being done on the dock so it was a bit difficult to find our launch point. Not a big deal. Once we did, check in was easy. We were provided a paper map and a thorough explanation of where we should go and what... More

On January 23, my wife and I visited Kayak Nature Adventures in Gulfport, Florida during our annual winter vacation. We were blessed to receive an informational personal guided tour of Boca Ciega Bay and Clam Bayou by the award winning Conservationist owner of KNA, Kurt Zuelsdorf. Kurt offered in lieu of taking out kayaks, he wanted to take us on... More

Whether you're a local or taking a vacation with the family, these guys really know what they're doing. There's no better way to get a feel for the natural beauty that Florida has to offer than to get out there in the elements for yourself. The staff here is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful for all levels of kayaking experience. Our... More

My wife and I were thinking about purchasing a SUP so we ventured to KNA to give it a try. After a great lesson from the owner, we ventured out thru the bayou, and when I was finally able to stay on top, we ventured along the beach, had a quick bite at Maddys, then paddled back. Unfortunatley for me... More

Had a great time with Kurt on the full moon paddle. We own kayaks so we received a discount on the fee. Had 3 members of my party including my daughter. We were supplied with a sub sandwich, chips and drink. Completely comfortable giving credit card info over the phone and signed waiver at the meeting spot. Went for a... More

My husband and I traveled to Florida last year and ended up at Kayak Nature Adventures. Being from Michigan, we had never kayaked before so this was new to us. The guide was well versed and experienced and explained everything to us in detail. Off we went! Beautiful scenery, perfect weather and the birds were just gorgeous!! We were hoping... More

I'm a local and I've paddled with Kurt of Kayak Nature no less than five times over the past few years, and I've rented kayaks and SUPs from him as well as (more recently) brought my own 'yak for a guided paddle. I can't and won't speak to what has "Newin M" upset, but I can say that I've given... More
