Stepping through Time in a Coastal Wilderness

EcoMotion Tours invites you to take a memorable, 1 ½ hour walking exploration of a centuries-old Spanish Colonial Plantation, beautifully set by the sea.

We provide tours year-round, along the grounds of Kingsley Plantation, easily found off A1A’s scenic corridor of parks, between Amelia Island and Jacksonville.

Nowhere else can you explore such original plantation structures, and enjoy a natural coastal ecosystem where the waterways, plants, birds, and wildlife habitats are all vigorously protected by the National Park Service.

You’ll be escorted off-the-beaten path by local experts who will customize the tour to your interests and activity level. Tour arranged for individuals and groups.

My husband and I went on a babymoon trip to Fernandina and decided to do this segway tour for fun. Great decision! Mike, our guide, was patient and knowledgeable in both the segways and the preserve we toured. We learned about some local plants and animals and how the waterway was used many years ago. We would definitely recommend this... More

Our group of 5 (two in our 30s and 3 in their 60s) loved this tour! We had great guides who were knowledgeable and interesting throughout the tour. We started out in a practice field/area to learn how to use the segways and get comfortable and then we hit the trails! We learned about the history of the area, the... More

Kayak Amelia is fantastic. They are dedicated to their customers and to the area and their surroundings. I cannot recommend them highly enough. We've used them before and will keep coming back. You won't be disappointed!

We were looking for something to do during the holidays with our extended family. We found Kayak Amelia and their scheduled tours. Unfortunately, the time of the tour that worked for us was already full. We sent Kayak Amelia an email and asked if, by chance, they could add a tour on Sunday Dec. 27th. She found two tour guides...

Nick and Chris guided us through a Segway tour of Fort George. Nick shared lots of interesting information about the history of the island and about the wildlife and vegetation around us. He was quite knowledgeable. The Segways were a lot of fun and very easy to ride. Bring water and bugspray and you are good to go!

This was our second week long excursion with KAYAK AMELIA and we had a great week. Their all inclusive trip provided us with a great place to stay, great food that was prepared by our guides Jules and Chris. Combine that with their intimate knowledge of Amelia Island, surrounding area, wildlife, history and folklore provided us a trip to remember!... More

Four of us did a Segway tour with Nick & Chris 2 days ago, and loved it. (Well, except for my wife getting eaten by mosquitoes. Bring bug spray!) Segways are such a great novelty and a great way to see more than you could on a hike, and Nick's narration of what we were seeing (flora, fauna, land formation,... More

Had so much fun with family and friends on the off-road Segway tour, we came back the next day for kayaking! Both were wonderful, with friendly, knowledgeable guides making sure everyone was taken care of. I'll definitely do both of these excursions again.

My wife and I had a great time on some off road Segway's with Mike who grew up in the area. Mike was able to take us to some of the historical areas whilst on our tour. The only dark cloud on the horizon was the rain cloud that dumped on us. This is what Segway's are designed for and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our small business. Mike's ever-expanding knowledge of the area has always been so impressive. He is very passionate about what he does and I think that really shows on the tours. Of course we are all too aware about our bipolar Florida weather. Lots of guests have heard us say, "Oh the...
