This is a must do if you are in or traveling through Munising. Captain Tim and his family provide an incredible experience of water adventure. The trip provides the natural beauty of Grand Island, pictured rocks and a chance to see an American Eagle and get so close to a waterfall that you think you are going to take a... More

Family owned & run business. Very friendly captain & his mate (son). The shop was run by wife of captain & daughters. Giftshop (place where you check in for ride) was very cute decor, friendly service, clean bathrooms. The ride was a lot of fun! Boat does spins (I wouldn't recommend for anyone with neck/back issues or elderly...it whips pretty... More

Loved every minute. You can tell this family is really proud of what they do to make this attraction successful. Spins were a good time, and everyone on our trip had a great time -- kids and grandmas alike.

Wow - this tour of Pictured Rocks exceeded all of our expectations! The views were incredible, we all felt very safe and had a blast taking some fun spins along the way, and we even saw some bald eagles! We had plenty of time to take photos, and the pace was really great so no one got bored!! We all... More

Riptide Ride was an amazing attraction. We were worried that our young daughter would be bored on the other Pictured Rocks cruises but not this one! It is a 700hp jet boat that provides a one of a kind tour. It is a family owned company and the father is your boat captain. He is very skilled with the boat... More

This ride was awesome. It is about an 1 1/2 hr. long, and you do get wet. It takes you around Grand Island in beautiful Lake Superior. This family owned business is a great attraction that anyone in the area should experience. The sharp/fast turns to the left and to the right were awesome!!! Great-Great-Great-ride!

Husband and I wanted to do something special for our 10th anniversary. The Pictured Rocks and Shipwreck tours sounded too long, so I checked out Riptide Rides. I didn't read one review that was negative, and everyone was right! This is a family run business with Captain Tim and his son Sean running the boat, daughter Rachel checking you in... More

What a buzz. As well as being a lot of fun this family owned and run trip was full of excellent information and since the 'boat' is small we were able to get up really close to see the pictured rocks and the eagles. On our trip the group were asked if we wanted to experience going under the waterfall.... More

What an awesome experience!!! When you see the "other" tour boats go at the pace of a snail across Lake Superior, you almost feel sorry for them! This is truly a family owned/operated business. Riptide worked with us to book our ride, as we were traveling with an infant, and the entire group could not go on the same tour,... More

Found out about this boat trip on trip advisor. We went on the 11:00 tour and picked the perfect day. Very calm lake and sunshine. We were welcomed by two friendly ladies which we learned were Mom and daughter. The little gift shop offered the perfect extra outfit for chilly weather and the bathrooms to use before the ride were... More
