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!

Just a great ride. We had kids (9, 11 and 12) and they all had a blast. It really is an unbelievably fast boat with awesome 360 degree turns. The bald eagles were a bonus. The Captain (Owner) was very informative for the adults while being fun and educational for the kids as well. The weather was not good for our scheduled time but they kept in touch with us during the day and we ended up on the water a few hours later. Safety was obviously a concern for them which made us feel even more comfortable. All in all, a great family operation, with all their family members taking part. They even had parking for our 35 foot RV right by their shop.

My family, including 9 and 10 year old daughters, was thrilled with Riptide Ride during our early August trip to Munising.

We did the longer Pictured Rocks Cruise last year, and while my husband and I really enjoyed it, our daughters were a little bored.

That was NOT the case with Riptide Ride. The fast turns, music and family who handle Riptide definitely make this an exciting experience!

This is the most fun ride and tour around Grand Island. We have taken the Pictured Rock Boat Cruise a couple years ago, and although a beautiful tour of the pictured rocks, it was very long and packed with people where I had a hard time getting a picture. This ride takes up to 16 or 18 people at a time and is about 1 1/2 hours long. The 360 degree turns I have to say were the most fun. The captain takes you upclose to view the pictured rocks and stops so you can take pictures. So you not only get a fun ride on a navy seal boat, you get to see some amazing wonders of nature in the pictured rocks. I'm looking forward to going back again with a group of our family and friends. Well worth the money!!!

Hang on and strap down,this ride will make you scream.A very nice tour of the Grand Island with great info by the captain.Nice view of some bald eagles and water falls. The 180 degree turn are outstanding and wet.Not to worry though,they do provide poncho's to wear.This is a boat ride you will want to do over and over.

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!
