St Petersburg Segway Nature Tour
$69.98
Overview
Experience St. Petersburg, Fla. like never before on this educational and entertaining 2.5-hour guided, small-group Segway nature tour. Learn about the Sunshine City’s nature and wildlife on a loop around the Tampa Bay seawall. See manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat. Visit the Sunken Gardens, a botanical paradise and St. Petersburg's oldest living museum and more. Guided Segway training, helmet and safety equipment and bottled water are included. Dress in weather-appropriate clothes with flat, closed-toed shoes.
What to Expect
There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of St. Petersburg, Fla.

Riding on a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one, especially gliding around a city like St. Petersburg. So this tour begins at the Tampa Bay seawall at North Straub Park with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 100 and 300 pounds to participate. A helmet and safety equipment, plus bottled water and an audio headset are provided.

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.

On this 1-hour Segway tour around St. Petersburg, cruise through the Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum, where there are more than 500 palms and cycads representing some 150 species from around the world. Stop along the bay to learn about and watch manatees in their natural habitat.

Visit the Sunken Gardens, a botanical paradise in the midst of the hustle of the city and St. Petersburg's oldest living museum. This four-acre, 100-year-old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region — over 500 species of tropical and subtropical plants amidst pools and cascading waterfalls. There are more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers in all.

Finally, return to North Straub Park to conclude the tour.

Great way to travel
