Overview

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!

Best boat ride to take for Grand Island tour. It takes 1.5 hours and is very informative and entertaining. Gives the best tour available in the least amount of time. We had an up close tour with the owners intensive knowledge of the area. You...More

This is probably the best Thrill around the Munising area, unless you see a Black bear up close, lol. The crew made it fun for everyone. Beautiful views along the way, with some History from the Captain, along with riptide turns. Enjoy!
