O’Maddy’s, a short walk and even shorter bike ride from the marina, serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. Owners Al and Maddy Guenther serve a consistent, tasty menu, but if the daily special has any sort of fish in it, opt for that. If you’re looking to explore nearby Clam Bayou (a struggling estuary home to osprey, manatee, gators, and green herons), you’ll need to do it from a kayak. The Outpost rents kayaks and offers advice on local happenings. It also sells Gulfport-themed merchandise and other whimsical gifts.
Gulfport also operates its own bright red and green trolley from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. This is a free trolley that runs throughout the waterfront district.
