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 family owned and operated business did not disappoint on our recent trip to the Pictured Rocks area. We wanted something fun and educational for our 10 and 11 year old children, and boy did we get it! They loved the 360 degree turns and...More

The Riptide Ride is a lot of fun. My family loved going fast and the 360 spins. We also really liked seeing eagles, lighthouses, waterfalls, and the pictured rocks. Our captain took the boat into some of the alcoves so we could view them up...More

Super cool way to tour an awesome island (Grand Island). Would do it again! Entertaining and beautiful. Local family owned boat operators, knowledgeable, responsible, yet great fun. Lots of boat spins, and really cool locations. Amusement park type boat ride of a gorgeous location.

I had such a blast on the Riptide with my 2 sons, ages 19 and 20- and a fun-loving hubby. The Riptide is a family-run business who take a lot of pride in their sight-seeing boat and gift shop. We literally were smiling and laughing...More

What an awesome experience. We took 3 different types of "boat rides" during our trip to Pictured Rocks and the Riptide Ride was by far the best. Kayaking is very expensive, takes a long time and you only get to see a fraction of the...More

We were originally booked with a larger tour boat company, but I am so glad my sister-in-law told me to try Rip Tide instead! This review cannot do this tour justice. It was beautiful, exciting, fun, original and we had an absolutely wonderful time. There...More

Response from jessicaosburn | Reviewed this property |
I would say probably not. There is a weight limit, and they were concerned with my 4 year old being able to hang on. But even if the baby was in a wrap, there are still really fast turns, a lot of cold spray, and loud noises. More
