My sister learned of this location for Segway tours in the Ft George Wilderness area. We had 1 experienced and 3 newbie take a tour 12/22.

I don't remember everyone's names on the staff but they were all wonderful. The office manager made us feel warm and welcome and answered all our questions. The set up, training and safety awareness were top notch.

The tour uses the off road style of Seqways. This makes for an enjoyable day for all.

Very professional, knowledgeable and fun!

Please go if you can make it part of your Jacksonville Visit. Make sure to schedule reservations.

First timers on a Segway... on our Jacksonville Florida vacation went on the Fort George Island Dune Ridge Trail to Point Isabel Shores Segway tour. It was such a blast! The owners Maren & Greg and tour guide Donna did an awesome job of showing us how to safely operate the Segway's. They also gave us plenty of time to zipping around the grounds getting comfortable on them before we headed out on the tour. Marem and Donna were our guides and were very knowledgeable about the history and ecosystem. They also let us spend a little more time on the segways after the tour which was fun! Highly recommend this two-wheeled tour.

The ecomotion Segway tour on fort George island was outstanding. We had never ridden segways and our host/guide, Nick, was patient and knowledgeable. Lots of fun while seeing nature at its best from oyster beds to gopher tortoises to beautiful butterflies to snake skins and people enjoying the sand bars. The only negative is the mosquitoes so if you go this time of year, make sure you have repellent. Great way to spend a couple of hours becoming one with beautiful and natural habitat.

We had never ridden Segway but heard how much fun they are. We were not disappointed. This tour is "off road" thru he canopy of live oaks and costal flora. We saw several gofer turtles and their burrows. The guides were very knowledgeable and really nice. This is a great way to spend the morning on a beautiful island!

The three of us, mom, dad and 15-year-old son, were looking for some activity to do. Although we were staying near Fort Clinch, Ecomotion only had availability at Fort George on the day we wanted. We had not seen Fort George before so we went. It was a little more than a 30 minute drive from North Fernandina Beach. The owners and guides were very experienced and helpful. None of us had ever ridden a Segway before, but we felt fairly confident after a few minutes of training. The tour took about an hour and 15 minutes and was very interesting and instructive. When we were done, the guides suggested that we drive around the island and visit the Kingsley plantation. We did this and it was very worthwhile. We enjoyed this outing very much and highly recommend it to anyone else who wants to engage in some different activity while visiting Amelia Island.
