25 Miles of Pictured Rocks Cliffs, 360 degree spins, countless smiles!...

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!

We had SO MUCH FUN with Captain Tim. This is a family owned and operated business. Everyone was wonderful. The tour goes around Grand Island where we saw lighthouses, amazing rock formations and multiple Bald Eagles. The captain is very knowledgeable about the area and knows the hot spots where the Eagles hang out. The boat ride is awesome. Tim... More

Great, fun way to view pictured rocks! Take raincoat or poncho, you WILL get wet! Wear shoes that can get wet. Buckle your seat belt, brace yourself for the 360 degree turns, and enjoy the ride with this family run business!

My boyfriend and I had a blast on this trip, but that's because we came prepared! They warn you that it will be colder on the lake and that you will get wet, but there was still a group of girls in t-shirts and shorts that were freezing their butts off. Wear pants, long sleeves and a poncho and you'll... More

This is our third trip on the Riptide and it gets better every year. We love it! We love the fact that it is family owned and operated. It is an activity even two out of shape 60ish year old people can enjoy. We will be back next year.

This is the best boat tour I've ever been on! Family owned and operated, everyone was super friendly. The tour takes you all the way around grand island. I went on the other pictured rocks boat tour previously and it is boring in comparison. Take a rain jacket if you don't want to get soaked! The spin outs are incredibly... More

My family and I chose this ride after watching the Riptide ride boat operate in the Munising bay. Its a ride for those that want to ride fast and slow to see beautiful Grand Island with its west side cliffs taller then any of the Pictured rocks. But its not only a scenic ride. Captain Tim is excellent at the... More

We absolutely loved the Riptide! It is a family owned business and they are nicest people in Munising if you ask us . Our daughters 9 and 11 years old LOVED it and my father in law 73 years old can't stop talking about it . You do get wet for sure so take something to try to stay dry.... More

This ride was awesome! Cold...but awesome! It's a family-owned company and they were all extremely polite and thankful for the business. If you're trying to decide between this or the other cruises, I'd say choose this unless you're older, have really young kids, or have back problems. We had a four year old with us and he was fine, but... More

A few years ago I took the family on a Pictured Rocks Cruise. While my family enjoyed it, daughter (age 4 at the time) lost interest not too far into the cruise. We wanted a more exciting way to see the shoreline and decided to try out Riptide Ride - we were not disappointed! We have returned several times, with... More
