Description: A segway tour with Zegway by the Bay is the best way to see Anna Maria...
A segway tour with Zegway by the Bay is the best way to see Anna Maria Island. As we embark on a guided segway tour of Anna Maria Island, we'll explore the hidden paths most would never know as you won't find them on a map. We'll share with you, as our guests the story of Anna Maria Island from Ponce de Leon, the Seminole Indians, George Emerson Bean, to "Island Stewards" of today. We promote all businesses as we roll along our Anna Maria pathways. We have the weekly updates for several events you may wish to attend. From bands like Koko Ray and the Soul Providers, playing regularly at local pubs and restaurants, to artists like Cheeta, who's art work is painted across the island. We'll share the stories and show the way to newcomers from Leffis Key to Bean Point.Your tour guides are Casey and Cathy. Both live and play on the island and love to share stories with their guests on the guided segway tours. Safety is always important. We do training prior to the tour so no worries and it won't cut into your tour time! We'll train you properly and make sure it is safe for all to roll prior to the tour. Our two guides alone have trained thousands of riders, so rest assured that even if you are riding a segway for the first time, allow these two ladies to train you and you'll be rolling on a segway effortlessly in a matter of minutes.Our full two hour tour is $65 per person, covering just under 8 miles round trip. We stroll along the entire north half of the island. Our one hour tour at just under 4 miles is $45 per person. We do accept cash, Visa, and MasterCard. Reservations are requested as we fill up quick. Please give us 24 hours notice if at all possible.REQUIREMENTS:14 years and up. We've trained up to age 95 years old on a segway.

I've always wanted to try a Segway. When I read the reviews here, I know this was the perfect opportunity. I booked by phone with Robert for a party of three. That was easy and took only a minute. He advised that Casey (his business/life partner) would be our guide. Casey did not disappoint! Casey is very patient and kind... More

So much fun! Excellent tour guide; very friendly and personable, and she taught us how to ride the segways well. Took the 2 hour tour and it was well worth it, saw a lot of the island. 10/10 would absolutely recommend!

My wife and I took the Bean Point morning tour. It was our first Segway experience and it won't be our last. Casey made us feel safe and comfortable with the training in the lot behind the building away from traffic before the tour. It was a fun way to see the island.

We did the 2hr island tour with Cathy, who was amazing! and she made sure everyone in the group felt comfortable handing a zegway before we went on our tour. It's a brilliant way to get around, get a guided tour and discover bits about the island you'd otherwise not see. We stopped once or twice to take photos and... More

We had never been on a segway before, but rest assured, they are easy to navigate. I highly recommend this activity at the beginning of the trip as our guide was very good at pointing out a number of attractions. We took the 2 hour tour and I am glad that we went for the longer one. We were having... More

Walt and I did a one-hour tour today with Cathy as our teacher and guide. It was great! She makes sure you're comfortable before you roll, and then she makes it all fun with walkie-talkie-delivered info about the island. We stopped at a couple of really lovely little beach-access spots and learned all about the nature preserves, restaurants and live-music... More

We were on Anna Maria Island for our son's wedding and decided to spend a week after the wedding as our extended family vacation. We did a one-hour Segway tour with Cathy as our guide. It was a blast! The tour provided a fun way to see and learn more about the island and it's history. Our only regret is... More

We did the 2-hour segway tour and loved every minute! First off, don't be intimidated by the segway - you will get the hang of it really fast!

We had the best time. Couldn't have asked for a better guide, Casey is awesome ! I highly suggest this tour no matter how many times you've been here, it's something that should be on everyone's bucket list. Money well spent. We'll be back next year.

We had a blast with our "Segway Goddess" Cathy! Would definitely suggest the two hour tour. There is so much to see and the Segway is a great way to get around.
