25 Miles of Pictured Rocks Cliffs, 360 degree spins, countless smiles! Riptide Ride has the ultimate package of fun and beautiful scenery. 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!

Every year we've been in the UP we've had problems with this tour while kayaking. With the worst being this year as we had to wave our paddles in the air while in Trout Bay to get them to turn away from us then to have them cut in front of us instead of going behind us which is boating... More

Fantastic experience. Family run business. Very nice people. Price is definitely right. Great views and lots of fun with the boat 360 turns. You will get wet. If you can sit on left side of boat for better views.

This was a blast worth every penny. We were cold and soaked and loved every minute. Kids on the boat had a great time as did the adults. Captian Tim kept us informed of every twist and turn no surprise soakings. Seen three bald eagles and even went inside a cave and under a waterfall but asked he everyone's permission... More

We were hoping to get a tour of the area and it appeared that we should take a typical pictured rocks tour. After booking our hotel, I asked what tour I should take? Without a second to think, she said take the Riptide tour. So we did! We arrived 15 minutes before our departure time at their location. Immediately you... More

Fun and fast boat ride with twists and spins. (Plan to get wet. They provide nice ponchos.) Captain Tim was very knowledgable, and could answer questions. Provided more than ample opportunities to take pictures of Painted Rocks area, area lighthouses, a waterfall, wildlife and more. Wish I'd been bidding on the port side (for more photo ops). All three of... More

Our group of 11, ages 6-52 all enjoyed this! From captain Tim to Joanie in the gift shop, this family owned business takes good care of you. We called the evening before at nearly 9pm and were surprised to get a real live person on the phone to take our reservation. Wear lots of layers and shoes that can get... More

My son and I have done this twice and he's already asking to go back! Breathtaking views, super fun and thrilling ride and Captain Tim and his family are friendly, caring people. Call ahead for reservations, this fills up fast. I would definitely say that this is a "must do" when vacationing at the Pictured Rocks!

This is a MUST DO! I am telling everyone that I know. This was the first thing my family and I did at the start of our long deserved vacation In the U.P. What a way to start it off. My husband and I let our two kids (ages 16 and 11) believe that we were going on the other... More
