Tour Washington Island by Segway
This is a half-day tour (about five hours) and visits many of the highlights of Washington Island by traveling from the ferry dock to Schoolhouse Beach. Some sites you may visit are a lavender farm, Stavkirke Church, Jacobsen Museum, Farm Museum, Mountain Park Lookout Tower, Historic Island Dairy, and Nelson’s Hall.
Washington Island is a very unique place with its rural landscape and eccentric destinations. As we travel across the length of the island, we will stop to pick up lunch and often eat it at Schoolhouse Beach. You will visit many of the sites the island has to offer as well as take in the beauty of canopied roads and beautiful shorelines. This is a guided five-hour tour, so you will travel about 20 miles on the Segways. You will have plenty of stops so you won’t feel tired at the end of the day.
The price includes a roundtrip on the ferry to and from Washington Island, your choice of a box lunch (or restaurant lunch depending on the season), a Segway PT lesson, and a glide around the island. This is a great way to see the island for the first time or see it as you have never seen it before on this half-day guided tour.
How it Works
Make a reservation ahead of time. We meet near the Washington Island Ferry dock in Northport and train in the parking lot before riding the Segway right onto the ferry (included in price). You will enjoy the ferry ride to the island and the tour guide will take your lunch order. You will then ride the Segway right off the ferry. At some point on the glide, the guide may give you a choice between two attractions to visit. About five hours later you will return to your car.
