Tours of southern Anna Maria Island on a Segway i2 Personal Transporter are now under way.

Becky Kramer of Zegway by the Bay recently received seven new Segways, which are two-wheeled scooters on which riders can stand up and look around as they drive about.

The 90-minute tours cost $55 and will stop at Bradenton Beach’s Bridge Street, on Coquina Beach, at the Longboat Pass, among others places during the seven-mile tour.

“Nobody’s doing it out here,” Kramer said. “The tourism has been great here on the island and I figured this is a great addition to something that visitors can do.”
