It’s no secret that Angel Island offers some of the most spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay area, in addition to some wonderful historic treasures. We’ve already talked about many of the various hikes on the island, but if you’re a visitor hoping for a more unique experience we highly recommend checking out the island’s Segway tours!
Don’t be intimidated; these electric transportation devices will travel the paths and trails of Angel Island with complete ease! Starting at Ayala Cove, the Angel Island Segway tour will begin with some lessons on how to ride the vehicle so you can get comfortable. You’ll want to make sure all riders in your group are over 16 and meets the weight requirements. Once you get the hang of the Segway, you’ll be swept off to several points of interest on Angel Island, including outlooks of downtown San Francisco, the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Tiburon; and you’ll learn some fun facts along the way. The experience last for two hours and all you have to do is enjoy the view.
Whether you’re a tourist to the island, or a local getting a reminder of why you call the Bay Area home, the Segway tour is a great integration to any Angel Island visit.
