What You Can Expect

St Lucia Shore Excursion: Segway Nature Trail Experience

Segway Nature Trail Experience

After disembarking your cruise ship in Castries, board a tour vehicle for transport to the Segway base.

Listen to a safety briefing and orientation from your Segway guides, then head for the practice circuit and get familiar with the self-balancing electric scooter. Don a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads, then spend 20 minutes doing laps around the practice track to make sure you feel comfortable before hitting the trail. 

Zoom up the 1.7-mile (2.7-km) nature trail, which begins in Rodney Bay. Listen as your naturalist guide points out the native flora and fauna on your way up Mt Pimard. Your guide will also provide entertaining, educational information about the history and culture of St Lucia. 

Stop at some sealed bunkers that once served as lookouts and tunnels for the American Military, who were present on St Lucia during World War II. At a small pond, pause to feed some freshwater fish, then stop for a snack yourself at a local fruit shop. Get views of the Rodney Bay Marina, Reduit Beach and Pigeon Island on the way up the mountain. 

When your 2-hour sightseeing adventure is over, enjoy drop-off back at the cruise port in Castries. 

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to Castries for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Claude was a great guide. We quickly got the hang of it on the practice track and soon were able to go off the beginner mode so we could go faster. A word to the wise: don't speed down the hill! Claude easily corrected my goof and I didn't even have to step off the Segway. The trail is beautiful and mostly shaded. Very interesting to hear the history of the area. We had a great time!

A great tour that went just as advertised! We just returned from our cruise vacation and this was a great excursion! We booked directly through Viator and it was perfect. Taxi picked us up at the port, delivered us to the tour office and we were off!

It turned out my wife and I were the only ones on this tour and we had previously ridden Segways, so we got reacquainted quickly. Wendell, our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We rode well travelled trails and got to see some beautiful St. Lucia countryside, wildlife, beaches, and sampled some homemade rum punch. We enjoyed this tour very much and can recommend it without hesitation.

We went on our tour with Shangadanga, what a guy! The fruit stop was very unexpected but excellent and the views were great. The rum punch at the end in the bar was nice too. Watch out for mongooses too :-)

This excursion was by far our favorite and we went on five! We had 3 kids with us – 9, 11, and 14 and we all agreed this was our favorite! The staff was a hoot and very well informed about the area. They were very helpful and entertaining. The Segway’s were fairly easy to learn how to operate and the views were fantastic. I would highly recommend this excursion…. And this is coming from someone who’s sky dived, scuba dived, swam with dolphins/Sea lions/turtles and ziplined!

Eight of us, all over 50 years of age recenty did this tour. It was truly the highlight of our Carribean Cruise. Everyone at Lucian Style was so friendly and helpful. They made sure we were all comfortable on the segways before leaving on the trail tour. It was really pretty easy to learn and the sights were beautiful. They took pictures of us usng our own cameras and the fruit snacks were delicious and fresh. We also enjoyed the drinks at Miss Mary's shack although the drinks cost more than we planned (our fault....I guess we shud have asked). All the guys involved from Richard the manager to Shanga and the other two guides....this was a fun and memorable way to spend time in beautiful St. Lucia.

Our driver went to the wrong cruise port, but a quick call by the info desk staff got things settled. Great fn!
Wish we had more time to explore on the segways! Edwin and Devin did a great job!

The segway tour was a lot of fun. We had outstanding guides and outstanding complimentary drivers both ways. I do want to say that your company really needs to communicate the pick up points better. There was never a communication as to exactly/precisely - where the driver was going to pick us up. The cabbies were extremely aggressive in St Lucua also. Only time on the criuse that I didn't feel my family was completely safe.
