About Our Business

Mission Statement

Our venue is the water that is so abundant in Florida. We wish to inspire people to Live Life Active through kayaking and to take part in the growing kayaking community, whether it be recreational or the kayak fishing community. We are old school and want to be known for treating people the way we would like to be treated ourselves. It is our goal to provide the best possible customer service to every individual who blesses us with their patronage.  Providing opportunities to spend quality time for themselves and with their families doing something that takes their mind from the day-to-day responsibilities and creates memories.

Our History

The Begining

We are a husband and wife operation. Rob a military veteran and a retired firefighter/Battalion Chief and Susan a previous business owner and past PADI scuba instructor. Both have a strong attraction and love for the water, so a retirement venture sharing our love of the water only seemed appropriate.  Like the saying goes - Do something you love and you'll never work another day in your life.

Personal Standards

Our customers’ satisfaction stems from those moments in which we make them feel special. With our Personal Standards, we are making great strides to turn

Bare Naked Kayaks into the best store of its kind, and we won’t succeed unless you’re happy with our services. Is there a feature you would like us to provide in the future? Let us know, and we’ll do our best to deliver.

Between the two of us, we are boaters, a professional scuba instructor complete with life time dive buddy and recreational kayakers, Rob also likes to fish. So sharing our love and knowledge of our sports is a big part of the business, although we could use some help in the fishing or rather, catching area. That's about as sporty as we get. Come check us out.

We love outdoor fun on the water, paddling down the local rivers and springs, out into the Gulf of Mexico, tossing a line out to see if we're cooking our catch or going out to dinner  :-), and of course snorkeling are just some of the things you can do with us

Family Business

Providing family business ethics, and other awesome perks for our shoppers, is a great way to keep them coming back for all their kayaking needs. In addition to having access to what we believe are the best selection of kayaks and accessories around, you can also take advantage of our family's business commitment to you, our customer. Our goal is to make you happy, and we hope  we’re succeeding.
