What a fun way to see Grand Island. My 12 year old just loved it. We saw the beautiful cliffs and lots of eagles on our boat ride, all while whipping spinners in the lake and getting totally drenched. Be prepared to get very very wet! The guide was very knowledgable. The only reason I didn't give it five stars... More

Thanks for your feedback. At the time you rode the boat we had just upgraded our stereo system and we have since made adjustments to the output. We're glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the scenery! Thanks again, Tim & Joni More

I had a wonderful time. I went on this exciting cruise twice in two weeks. Seeing the island was my main goal but the fun spins were pretty awesome. The first ride was calm......but the second ride was 12 ft rolling waves. OMG what a ride. The scenery was wonderful and we saw a few bald eagles. This is a... More

Ripide Ride was fun way to see a part of Pictured Rocks! The tour is around Grand Island in a fast boat. There are numerous stops to see the rock formations, lighthouses, and wildlife. We saw bald eagles and falcons. The stops involve a spin - the captain lets you know it is coming and tells you to hang on... More

This wasn't exactly what I had expected when I booked the trip; but I'm so glad that we did it! It wasn't your grandma's boat tour for sure! The scenery was beautiful and the staff was very kind. I would wear sandals instead of tennis shoes the next time. The tour was the perfect length of time and the sights... More

Sadly I can't comment on the actual ride. It was the one attraction that my family was looking forward to the most. I was not aware that they only have one boat in the water. They also only go out 2-3 times a day but I see that that is posted on their website. Perhaps it would have worked out... More

We could not have imagined how much fun this 28' inflatable boat ride could be until we went on one of Capt. Tim's cruises around Grand Island National Recreation Area near Munising, MI. He took us by lighthouses, beautiful Pictured Rock cliffs, waterfalls (some of us even got to stick our fingers under one of the falls), and some bald... More

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
