Amelia's Wheels is offering new and adventurous ways to experience the Segway™ Personal Transporter (PT). Take a tour of the resort or simply satisfy your curiosity with a brief lesson on the Segway PT.
Stepping into the new millennium of human transportation, the Segway PT is the first of its kind in personal transportation, offering a self-balancing device designed to go anywhere people do. Its advanced technological makeup relies on the company’s breakthrough technology, “dynamic stabilization,” which enables the Segway to work with body movements.
So, when riders move forward, the Segway PT moves forward; when the rider leans back, the Segway PT reverses. And now, anyone can try this exciting invention at The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation.
We are proud to make guided tours of our beautiful property available to our guests. The Segway provides a unique experience throughout the maritime forests, ocean views and marsh waterways of Amelia Island Plantation.

Hear what guests are saying about our tours...
"This was such a fun experience! Both my wife and I were nervous but the instruction was great, the short training session we had was a big help in making us feel comfortable, and the guide that took us around the island was knowledgeable and fun to be with. We plan to go again with our two college aged girls during their next break! They'll love it!"
"Had a fantastic time. Beautiful area, tour leader was friendly, courteous, gracious, knowledgeable, accommodating. Even stopped for refreshments at the oceanfront bar. The Segways were top notch. Safety program was super and, we were required to wear biking helmets, I am looking forward to going back and staying at the Omni Resort."
"Most excellent! Great people, Very relaxed and beautiful scenery. The staff are friendly and the experience is not like anything I've done before... and I've done lots! Not like a motorcycle, but *similar*. Not like skiing,, but the moves feel the same. Not like jet skis, but the feeling of motion control is very exciting. Do this!"
