Riptide Ride

Frequently Asked Questions


Do you see Pictured Rocks?

Yes, we see 25 miles of Pictures Rocks Cliffs as we navigate around Grand Island. Our route includes the tallest cliffs in the area and as a bonus you’ll also see two lighthouses!

Can I bring a camera on board?

With such beautiful sights on the trip, we encourage you to take a camera.  Just make sure its protected since it may get wet along the way.

Will you stop for pictures along the route?

Yes! We stop at landmarks for narration and allow time for picture taking before we’re off to the next sight.

How long is the trip and what is the cost?

 1½ hours, $39 for adults, $29 children 3-12.

What is your schedule?

Please see the routes and rates page for our departure times.  The schedule is subject to change, so please call to confirm.

Is the ride just for adrenaline junkies?

We do have lots of fun, but keep in mind it’s a family friendly ride for ages 3+.  Grandparents have just as much fun as young children and teenagers. 

Will I get wet?

On the ride you may experience anything from a light spray to a shirt-wringing splash.  It depends on the wind, waves and how hot it is outside. We suggest bringing along a rain coat or poncho. 

What should I wear on the ride?

Since the wind sometimes can be cool, we suggest wearing a jacket or sweatshirt during the ride. Your feet may get wet so if you’re concerned about your shoes, you can go barefoot on the boat.

What restrictions do you have for passengers?

The ride is limited for ages 3 and up.  The tour is not appropriate for anyone with serious medical issues, back, heart or neck problems or pregnant women. 

Should I bring life jackets for my kids?

No, our vessel is Coast Guard approved and in an emergency we have certified life jackets on board to use.  

What is your cancellation policy?

In order to avoid being charged, you must cancel your reservation before 48 hours of your scheduled departure time.  Also, if you don’t show up for your ride, you will be charged for your tickets. These policies are strictly adhered to and there are no exceptions for any reason.
