A segway tour with Zegway by the Bay is the best way to see Anna Maria Island. As we embark on a guided segway tour of Anna Maria Island, we'll explore the hidden paths most would never know as you won't find them on a map. We'll share with you, as our guests the story of Anna Maria Island from Ponce de Leon, the Seminole Indians, George Emerson Bean, to "Island Stewards" of today. We promote all businesses as we roll along our Anna Maria pathways. We have the weekly updates for several events you may wish to attend. From bands like Koko Ray and the Soul Providers, playing regularly at local pubs and restaurants, to artists like Cheeta, who's art work is painted across the island. We'll share the stories and show the way to newcomers from Leffis Key to Bean Point.Your tour guides live and play on the island and love to share stories with their guests on the guided segway tours. Safety is always important. We do training prior to the tour so no worries and it won't cut into your tour time! We'll train you properly and make sure it is safe for all to roll prior to the tour.

We had a wonderful time. Instructions were clear, the Segway is easy to use and while following our guide she told us about the island, plant life, and took us to sights along Anna Marie that we would never have known about. Every one has a hands free walkie talkie attached to the Segway, so you know exactly what is... More

This was our 2nd Segway tour, the first being Sarasota. It is a wonderful and fun way to see an area. Casey provided the two hour tour and she was fantastic. She knows so much history of the Island also knows all the great places to eat and shop! She is super friendly and did a great job making sure... More

We spent a long New Year's Eve weekend on Anna Maria Island, first time we've been there. Weather was really beautiful. We arrived without much of an agenda, except to pretend we might be able to buy some property here some day. As the weekend wound down, my wife, who had done a Segway tour in the past on Fernandina,... More

Great time with Casey as our guide. She provided interesting commentary and took us to a variety of beautiful spots where she took photos of our family with our devices. No way we would have been able to see and appreciate Anna Maria Island like we did without this Segway tour. Fun and highly recommended.

My 14 year old daughter and I were very interested in this tour as a way to get to know the island and called in the evening to see if there was a chance to get a reservation for the next day. What a pleasant surprise that they could fit us in on short notice and called us back quickly.... More

Great tour and tour guide! We had a blast and it will be a great memory for our family! The island is beautiful and riding the Segway was a great way to see it all. Schedule this tour toward the beginning of your trip so you can learn all about the island and what it has to offer.

My 3 friends and I did the two hour tour with Casey on Nov 14. We had an absolute blast! None of us had ever been on a Segway before and Casey took time with each of us to feel comfortable before we went out. This was an excellent way to see the Island! I highly recommend this tour!!!

If you haven't ridden a Segway, there's a very short learning curve before it quickly becomes second nature. Fortunately, our guide was very helpful in getting our group up to speed (no pun intended) and comfortable on them before embarking on a tour that was nothing short of fantastic! Our guide was a friendly local who really knows Anna Maria... More

My dad, daughter and I choose the two hour Bean Point tour. It was FANTASTIC!!! Tim's island knowledge and fun personality made this a wonderful experience! Thank you Tim, and Zegway by the Sea! I highly recommend anyone who visits (or lives on the island) to take this tour.
