Owner description: 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 have taken the other Pictured Rocks tour boat, was ok but slow and took half the day. On the recommendation from Staff at Days Inn, we booked a ride. Smartest thing we did all trip! This family owned business truly caters to it's guests. From the father who is the captain, to the wife who works the desk and phone, and the kids who are the crew, this is a FAMILY FRIENDLY experience. The last time I rode a navy seal boat like this, I had a helmet and a gun, no need for either on this ride! Pure fast, informative, and exciting. The boat is very safe & seaworthy, the captain takes great care to inform you of your surroundings and what he is doing. Eagles and waterfalls, and beautiful sights! I will do this again!

What a fun ride! Got to see all of Grand Island, a pair of bald eagles and enjoy the lake. It was not scary, we wee warned whenever the captain was going to do a spin. You really do have to hang on! The morning was beautiful! Don't go if you have a bad back...

The other boat services takes up to 2.5 to 3 hours. We had kids ages 9 to 21 and that was the last thing they wanted to do.....we found this new boat service and after seeing the pictures...EVERYONE wanted to see the Pictured Rocks! We were a group of 8 and they actually scheduled a time that would work for our group or any group of 8 or more...so we almost had our own boat tour! This is a FAST boat..if you don't like fast boats...then take the 3 hour boat ride....we saw Pictured Rocks...4 Bald Eagles and many waterfalls and amazing sites! This is a family run business from the gift shop to the Navy Seal Boat....We'd all rate this as the #1 Activity to do in Northern Peninsula! EVERYONE wants to go back and drive the distance just to do this ride/activity again next time we go to Mackinaw Island!
