Bring your camera since you'll have plenty of opportunity to capture photos as you admire bald eagles, towering cliffs, wildlife and waterfalls. You'll be entertained from the moment you step on board until we return to shore. Between sights we'll have a blast with spins, turns and amazing speed on our jet boat! « less

This was a blast! We had a great time. Sit on the port side! You will get wet...wear the poncho! I can't wait to go again and bring my husband and kids. Took some amazing pictures. Captain Tim was able to get really close to the beautiful rocks. It's a family run business which makes it all the better! Thanks!

This is a funtime for every age. Beautiful views of Pictured Rock, Lighthouses, Waterfalls, Eagles and Lake Superior. The spins and turns are thrilling. Be sure to grab teh free ponchos offered at the dock. You DO get wet.

This was our second visit to Riptide Ride. Captain Tim and his family do a great job as hosts of the best way to see Lake Superior. It's fast, it's thrilling, it's beautiful, it's safe! We will definitely be back again...this year!

Where to start...what a great experience we had with our athletic team of 60 people: 1) They handled us in shifts and stayed on time while treating us to amazing views, boat tricks that keep you smiling/laughing, and interesting commentary about the incredible shoreline. 2) The place is clean with amazing modern woodworking in a simple yet practical gift shop...
