Segway tour to Kingsley Plantation

Super fun. The Segway's are really easy. Learned a lot about the history of the area, and the "flora and fauna." The staff was really helpful.

I took the 3 hour saltwater marsh tour with a small group. It was fabulous. Chris and Buddy were our guides. They were very friendly and informative about kayaking, the area and the environment we were exploring. The group was made up of some experienced kayaker and some newbies - it was enjoyable for all!

Well organized excursion with knowledgeable and very patient guides/trainers. I highly recommend Kayak Amelia. Our group had variable skill levels, but our guides were able to keep everyone safe and happy. I had never paddled before, but I am "a believer" after this trip. I'll definitely be back! Maybe it was the cookies they provided for a snack... ;-)

I can't say enough good things about Kayak Amelia! My husband and I have taken several kayak trips with KA over the last few years and every trip seems more enchanting than the last. Their friendly, professional guides provide just the right balance of kayak technique, safety instruction, nature and historical expertise, and silly fun (not to mention some killer... More

My husband and I signed up for the sunset kayak trip that ended with a walk through the area where the fireflies were getting ready to mate. I had only been on a kayak once before, but the guys gave a great crash course before we got started. The path we took was very scenic and the walk at the... More

We tried out kayaking last spring with Kayak Amelia and had a wonderful time. It was during that trip we first heard of the annual firefly tours, and got on the mailing list. What a delightful experience. The equipment is modern, clean and well maintained. The staff is knowledgeable, attentive and just plain fun. Got an incredible firefly show, the... More

This was my first time using a Segway and it was so easy to handle and made the tour of of Ft George Island Kingsley Plantation a pleasure. Walking the paths would take a long time (which is a beautiful walk) but the segway was way more fun than I thought. What a great way to experience the National Park.... More

We did the Segway tour of Kingsley Plantation. This is a great way to see or "hike" a National Park. If you've never done a Segway it's highly recommended. The guides were very knowledgeable. Segways are easy to learn and ride. Just takes a few minutes and you're off. enjoy!

Our family and the family we went with loved this activity. Was one of the best things we did on spring break. Not too tough for our children. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great time!
