After you arrive at the starting point in Pacifica, you'll receive a safety orientation to ensure you're comfortable aboard your Segway. Your guide provides an overview of the easy-to-maneuver, self-balancing device and fits you with a helmet during a training session that includes a safety video.
Once you are proficient, your 2-hour tour of Rockaway Beach gets underway. Glide through a rock quarry whose materials helped build San Francisco. Your guide points out railway stations that were once a part of the Ocean Shore Railroad and shows you the landing site of Gaspar de Portola; the Spanish officer — founder and first governor of Alto California — was responsible for establishing San Diego and Monterey.
Along with this historical overview, learn to identify local flora and fauna while you take in splendid views of the Pacific Ocean.
