Magic Carpet Glide sends groups coasting along scenic waterfronts on two-hour wheeled adventures. After a brief introduction to the segway’s auto-balancing features, guides shepherd packs of customers past popular destinations in St. Petersburg and Tampa. The St. Petersburg tour commences with carefree glides along the pier that stretches into Tampa Bay and serves as a gathering spot for shoppers, anglers, and pelicans posing as sidewalk vendors. From there, tours breeze through the leathery-leaved banyan trees of North Straub Park, whisk past the new Salvador Dali Museum, and take a peek at the Mediterranean Revival–styled Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.
The Tampa expedition traces Tampa Bay’s coastline, zips through the longest uninterrupted sidewalk on the planet, and flits past where the bay merges with the Hillsborough River. Tours swing past beloved Tampa landmarks such as the Gasparilla pirate ship on their way to Harbour Island, where tour-goers can snap pictures of downtown Tampa’s skyline as it blows kisses to passing ships.
Accessible to all ability levels, St. Petersburg and Tampa segway tours surprise visitors and locals alike by making them privy to little-known facts about the area and secret sights made visible by onboard decloaking devices. Tour times vary based on the sun’s schedule, with the last trip of the day commencing at sunset. See the tour’s FAQ section for answers to common inquiries, including recommended ages and rain policies.

“The tour guide was great and the view over the Ringling Bridge was awesome. Make sure you bring water and consider bringing your own bike helmet, if you have one.”
