Your Segway San Francisco Waterfront Tour features spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay. This journey will take you past the following places:

Fisherman's Wharf: Fisherman’s Wharf is a neighborhood that is a popular venue for events as well as having great shopping and restaurants.

Dungeness Crab Stands: Dungeness Crabs are a classic San Francisco fare. These crabs are renowned for their sweet, succulent meat. There is a wide array of dishes based on the Dungeness Crab in San Francisco restaurants.

Cable Car turnaround: When you think of San Francisco, the first thing that often comes to mind is the red cable cars that this city is known for. Here you’ll see the cars negotiate in a coordinated turnaround.

Ghirardelli Square: Ghirardelli Square is dominated by the enormous Ghirardelli Chocolate Company.

Historic sailing ships at Hyde Street Pier: Some of the ships berthed at Hyde Street Pier are the Balclutha, an 1886 square rigged sailing ship, as well as C.A. Thayer, Eureka, Alma, Hercules, Eppleton and Hall.

Alcatraz: Alcatraz, a small island in the San Francisco Bay has gone from being a lighthouse to a military fortification, to a military prison followed by a federal prison until 1963. It is now a historical site and recreation center.

Fish Alley: Fish Alley is a bustling fish market in the Chinatown district of San Francisco.

Fisherman's Chapel: The Fisherman’s Chapel honors fisher folk who have lost their lives at sea while attempting to bring sea food and fish to the San Francisco area.

WWII Liberty Ship and Submarine Pampanito: These two vessels are authentic ships of war used in WWII that are now on display for educational tours.

On alternate days there is a different route used: the Run for the Palace Route. This journey starts the same as the San Francisco Waterfront Tour, but is a journey Westward from the Wharf area towards the Golden Gate Bridge. This tour includes:
