What You Can Expect

St Petersburg Segway Nature Tour

Pier at the Park

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.

This was a great tour! Doo is so personable and very informative. This is her own company and she takes great pride in what she offers. The stop at the Sunken Gardens botanical garden was amazing. We have done several Segway tours in our travels and her addition of the headsets made for such a great tour. I loved the running commentary. I highly recommend this tour.
