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

We were on a budget so I was a little wary of spending the money on this, but it was worth every penny! (WEAR THE PONCHO and sandals because your feet get wet and maybe a sweater if it is cooler) My husband and I were so impressed and had such a blast we wanted to go again! Beautiful scenery... More

Beautiful, fun, personal tour around Grand Marais Island! Kids 14 and 9 both loved it. 1.5 hours was perfect length. Saw at least 5 bald eagles. Breath taking views. The 360 turns were fun, but I'd recommend wearing sandals, no socks, the water does get in the bottom of the boat and will get your feet wet. None the less,... More

Researched this before going to Munising and couldn't have been more pleased- reserved spots a week in advance (only about 20 people on the boat at a time). Superb way to see Grand Island if time doesn't allow you to visit there. Family-owned business dedicated to showcasing a beautiful area as well as providing a satisifying experience. When you see...

We heard about rip tide ride through friends down state. It was a really fun way for our Tweens to have fun and my husband and I to see the Pictured rocks that they may have been bored with. The family that runs this are great. It has a great gift shop and overall atmosphere. The kids loved the 360... More

Me and my friends went camping for 4 days, and taking a tour of Pictured Rocks was on our list. I am so glad we chose to go with Riptide Ride for our tour. The family owned business truly shows with the friendliness of everyone involved. Captain Tim is an intelligent, funny, and all around good guy. His wife, who... More

My family and I took the Riptide Ride and had a wonderful time. This is a family run business and everyone was friendly and made sure that we all had a great time. We were fortunate enough to go on a relatively warm day (79 degrees) with a lot of sunshine so getting wet wasn't a big concern. You will... More

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!

We reserved ahead and had no problems checking in. The ride is about an hour and a half and is a mix of exciting spins, great information (about Grand Island and... More

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.
