The most fun I have ever had.

This is the best way to see Pictured Rocks. The owners are so nice and very knowledgable. Make sure to make a reservation so you don't miss out on the fun.

Best boat ride in Munising! Combines sightseeing with a thrill ride. The boat flies along the shoreline of Grand Island stopping to view pictured rocks cliffs and points of interest. We had a bald eagle fly with the boat for a bit and that was fantastic. The thrill part comes when Captain Tim makes the boat spin and wave jump,... More

We were going to take the pictured rock catamaran tour but it was sold out for our time frame, sooo glad. This boat trip was fun, adventurous and beautiful. Loved supporting a family owned and ran business. Be ready for a ride though, this trip was an adventure!!,,

We found Riptide Ride after hearing that the other boat option was rather boring. We read reviews and decided to try it for ourselves! It was AWESOME! We arrived 40 minutes early (advised to arrive 1/2 hour early) and we were second in line to pick seats. Being adrenaline junkies ourselves, we of course picked the front seat. They warned... More

Family owned and operated and a great thrill ride with a tour of Grand Island and the Pictured Rocks! You will get wet and it is a wild ride but lots of fun. Will do it again.

This family owned business was the highlight of our trip to the U.P. It was a great blend of sight seeing, historical information and an adrenaline rush! It is hard to comprehend a boat spinning with such g-forces without flipping over. It was 70 degrees with 4-5' waves the day we went. We were all dressed appropriately to enjoy the... More

My boyfriend and I had lived in Marquette for 5+yrs but never taken a tour of Pictured Rocks, so we reserved a spot aboard Riptide Ride. I made the reservations and had decided that it felt more our style than the packed to the teeth Pictured Rocks Tours. We arrived early (30-45min) and pretty much had our pick of seats... More
