You Can Now Scoot Around A Florida Island On An Electric Skateboard
Cruising around nature with speed.
A trip to the beach is always a great idea but when it involves wheels, it turns into a speed adventure. Instead of walking around the ocean drive, you can cover miles of terrain on wheels. Amelia Island Board Rental tours are the best way to sightsee.
Locals and out-of-towners can take advantage of the best guided tour experience in Amelia Island. The company provides guests one-hour rentals and guided tours for 1.5 hours. Even if you have no previous experience skateboarding, this experience is for everyone and is easier than it looks.
The guided tour includes drinks, equipment and a different way to explore Florida nature. Hugh is the guide for the tour and he shows every guest how to operate the electric boards before hitting the road. The tour starts at the beach where guests can cruise along the ocean.
But, the main attraction of the guided tour is Amelia Island, where guest will make stops and take pictures around historical sights on the island. The tour follows another stop at the oldest bar in Florida, downtown, Egans Creek Greenway and then ride-off on nature trails.
This is not a regular tour where you get to ride and hear the history about the island. If you are looking for a nature-induced experience this tour will connect you with surreal wildlife such as birds, rabbits, deer and gators. Also, there is no need to worry if you forget your camera or phone because the tour includes photographs with video footage of you cruising to remember the adventure.
Each guest is required to bring a driver's license and tennis shoes. The tour costs $45 per person and you can book it through the Airbnb listing here.
