Tour description provided by Viator

Spend a morning in Florida’s amazing nature on this fun, scenic and educational Segway tour. Following your small group and knowledgeable guide through St Petersburg, discover the area’s diverse nature and wildlife as you cruise along the palm tree-lined Tampa Bay seawall to view manatees and dolphins in their natural habitat. Stop at the Sunken Gardens, an exotic botanical garden full of orchids, flamingos and koi-filled ponds. Along the way, you’ll learn about local ecosystems from your guide.

Meet at the Tampa Bay seawall at North Straub Park in St Petersburg for your morning safety orientation. Once you feel comfortable on your Segway, follow your guide along the beautiful boardwalk to see dolphins and learn about local marine life.

Cruise through the Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum, featuring more than 200 varieties of palm trees from all over the world, and stop along the bay to learn about and view manatees in their natural habitat.

Next, visit the Sunken Gardens, an exotic botanical garden featuring an array of orchids and bromeliads. See streams and koi-filled ponds dotted with pink flamingos and pass by the Growing Stone, a fossilized limestone rock thought to grant tranquility, inner harmony and the ability to make things grow. If you wish, take a turn sitting on the stone to see if the legend is true!

Afterward, you'll return to North Straub Park to end your tour.
