Historic Tybee Island is home to one of North America’s oldest lighthouses, a beacon that has welcomed sailors since the founding of the colony in 1733. The remains of old Fort Screven and the stories born there have haunted the island for more than a century. Beautiful historic homes stand as guardians to the sea turtles that nest yearly on her beaches. The drive to Tybee is spectacular. Flanked by marsh grass and river, don’t blink or you might miss something as you pass the historic Civil War Fort Pulaski as well as Georgia’s smallest lighthouse, Cockspur Island Lighthouse that marks the south channel of the Savannah River. Let us show you the magnificence of this island with the ease and freedom of Segways and electric bikes.
On the Tybee Island Segway Tour you’ll see that the island has a lot more to offer than just a pretty coastline. Tybee’s history goes back over five centuries beginning with the Euchee Indian tribe before the 1500’s who are credited with naming the island. Tybee is the Euchee word for salt which is quite fitting. The island has also been occupied by the Spanish in 1520 as part of Florida as well as a safe haven for pirates, a lush supply of sassafras for the French and a military stronghold for the French, the Union Army and the Confederate Army. At one time it was believed that the salt air was a cure for asthma and the island became a refuge for many people seeking improved health.
You can find Ft. Screven on the North side of the island where we begin our Tybee Island Segway and Electric Bike Tours. Hear the stories of the different armies that occupied Ft. Screven and get an up close look at Georgia’s first lighthouse that was commissioned by the colonies founder James Oglethorpe in 1736 and enjoy the gorgeous views of Savannah’s most famous Barrier Island.
During your Tybee Island Tour you will hear about the many movies that have filmed there including The Gingerbread Man, The Last Song, Spongebob 2 and most recently Baywatch: The Movie. Get a glimpse of some celebrity homes while you roll around the island with your tour guide. The real stars of the island however are the unique wildlife that call Tybee Island home.
