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!

This was by far the better choice for me as we have friends up to the "Big Lake" all Summer. We were growing weary of usual boat tour. This family run operation did a fantastic job of showing the other parts of pictured rocks. The trip around Grand Island was AWESOME! I won't give any spoiler alerts, but you will... More

Even with neck and back surgeries, it was easy to hold on, and what a ride it was! They give you... More

We saw eagles, did 360 degree spins in the boat and got up close and personal with a waterfall. Captain Tim gave us a chance to view it from directly beneath the falls. We... More

Really fun time... great views and fun boat spins (with forewarning). This is the way to see the rocks... and it's only 1-1/2 hour long.
