Bermuda Segway Tour
Duration: Half Day
Suitable for all ages, the Segway Human Transporter is one of the best ways to tour Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard, which was used as a base for the British Navy until the early 1950s. This revolutionary, eco-friendly machine, which can be best described as an electric scooter, is environmentally friendly, self balancing, easy to ride and extremely fun.
Your tour begins with a safety briefing, which includes an introductory video and training session. You will then be provided with a helmet and wireless headset, which will enable you to clearly hear your guide as he teaches you fascinating historical facts about Bermuda throughout your tour. Your adventure begins by gliding leisurely through the Royal Naval Dockyard, which is otherwise known as King’s Wharf. Dating back to the early 19th century, the dockyard is a magnificent preservation of British history and is now one of the island’s most popular tourist attractions.
Enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean as you explore historical sites and buildings along the way, including the Clocktower Mall, which was once the Royal Navy administrative headquarters but now houses an exciting range of shops and boutiques; the historic Casemates Prison and the 19th century Victualling Yard, which was once the heart of naval activity. Food and supplies were prepared here before being stored in the surrounding warehouses, but today it serves as a Visitor Information Centre for tourists.
The Bermuda Maritime Museum is one of the country’s most popular attractions, which is not surprising seeing as it lies within the walls of the island’s largest fort, the Keep, which was originally built to defend the dockyard. Representing Bermuda's rich maritime history, the museum showcases an extensive range of military artifacts and cultural and historic exhibits inside the Keep's beautiful old buildings, which include the grand Georgian Commissioner's House.
From here, you can enjoy wonderful scenic views of the dockyard and island. One of the most interesting exhibitions here is the Defence Heritage Exhibit, which examines Bermuda’s military defence history. You will see weapons such as 17th century canons, as well as military uniforms, medals and much more. The Segway is the only vehicle allowed to tour inside the museum.
You will also visit the Rumcake Factory on this tour, where you can sample some of the island’s most delicious cakes, as well as the Dockyard Glassworks. Sit and watch Bermuda’s skilled glassblowers as they create unique, colourful works of art. These beautiful pieces make wonderful gifts and souvenirs to take away with you.
If you are looking for culture and history during your holiday in Bermuda, this exciting tour is a wonderful way to learn all about the island’s fascinating maritime past in comfort.

The wedding next year will be conducted by the ship’s captain.
