Angel Island Segway Tours and Ticket Prices
As of May, 2021, Angel Island Segway Tours are again operating. Please see details below.
One way to see Angel Island is to take one of the different routes for hikes and bike rides, where you get to control where you go and how long you stare at each wonderful view. Another way is to take the Angel Island Tram Tour, which circles the island and makes a couple of stops for you to take photos.
If you’re looking for a really different experience, however, the Angel Island Segway Tour may be the right answer.
A tour guide leads the line of Segways and will also teach you about the island. The tour starts with an orientation to Segway riding, and then travels the full 5.5 mile (8.3 km) Perimeter Road on Angel Island, giving you the chance to see all of the great views. The route is marked on the map below, and it’s about a one hour ride.
And yes, those little Segways can actually climb the steep road up the hill from Ayala Cove!
Insiders Tip: If you have not made an advance reservation, go to the Angel Island Cafe right after you arrive to see if there are open Segway spots that day.
Segway Tour Prices
Note: Although Segway tours are available again as of May, 2021, their online ticketing system is not working and they ask you to call 415-435-3392 to make a reservation. We have not been able to confirm the 2021 pricing for the tours and the data below is pre-pandemic.
Tickets cost $68, and you must be at least 16 years old to ride the Segways. Riders may also not wear shorts, dresses or open toed shoes, which pretty much scuttles that cool wedding photo with the two of you on Segways high on a cliff on Angel Island overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge thing you were planning.
Insiders Tip: Different travel promoters sometimes have discount coupons for the Angel Island Segway Tours. You can look for them with a Google Search like this one.
Segway Tour Schedules
The Angel Island Segway Tours advertise that they run at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM each day.
Insiders Tip: From November through February (winter season) I would recommend calling ahead to ensure that they are still running those two tours, since much lower visitor volumes may result in some trips not taking place.
