We really enjoyed our morning. Brandon was so good, shared lots of history with us, kept us out of the storm that popped up and was so patient! Would definitely do this again!

Having fun at any age
, May 2022
What a great fun tour. Riptide is the best. CraigCat Boats we’re excellent and the guide was outstanding. A fun way to see the waterway around Fernadina Beach and a chance to beach on Cumberland Island. We were 3 couples all over the age of 70 and had a great time. Don’t think this is something for just younger adults. Put some zip back in your life with Riptide CraigCat Tour.

Craig Cat Adventure

I usually do not do fast water sports but I decided to be adventurous - for me. I had a blast. Zipping across the water on the Craig Cat was so much fun. Brandon was a great guide. I would definitely do this again.

Excited to hear you stepped out of your comfort zone and had a great time!
1st Craigcat Boat experience

Interacting with my tour guide, speed up and trying some cool was a nice experience. Wifey was little nervous in the beginning, but later enjoyed it more than me..

Glad that your wife was able to enjoy. It's all about having fun! Thanks for choosing Riptide!
Fun driving the boats...
, Jan 2022
Fun driving the boats around. Guides boat had problems so that limited our time going places. Some others on the tour had issues being out on the water and 3 boats had to turn around and go back.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Hi Nancy, Thanks for joining us for the CraigCat tour. I am sorry you feel your trip was limited as I understand you all made it to Cumberland Island and back which is our normal distance. Also I understand your frustration with part of your group having to go back however a child was having a health reaction to nervousness and they needed to return, that was not typical and completely out of our control. It was a short delay and the guide was able to direct them back as you all continued on. We strive to make everyone’s trip memorable and exceed a lower rating so we appreciate your feedback and will continue to improve the things in our power to make better.
Will definitely do again!

Excellent value…we were on the water for a long time & travelled far! We saw lots of dolphins & wild horses. Zack was great! The CraigCats are easy to drive & lots of fun! However, do be prepared to be colder than you expect.

Chris s was an amazing tour guide, both knowledgeable and fun! The boat ride was a great combination of thrills and relaxation. A great experience overall!
Best day on the water!

Great water tour if Cumberland Island. We saw dolphins, horses and even a shark! The boats were a blast to operate. Our guide, Chris McComas, was awesome. We told him it was our anniversary and he had a surprise bouquet of flowers brought to us at the end of our trip. Highly recommended!
Had a blast!

1st experience on a Craigcat boat and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Me & my wife had a blast on this excursion. Chris did a wonderful job on the tour. Definitely be doing this again if we return to Amelia Island or if we find these type boats anywhere.
Completely worth it!
, Feb 2021
Even though the weather ended up not being the most ideal, it was completely WORTH IT! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Money well spent for sure! The horses you see, the sharks teeth you find...the ride itself! It made for the best day!

So much fun!

My 14 year old son and I had a blast on this excursion! We live in Jax and will be back! Found a ton of sharks teeth on the beach and saw dolphin and wild horses. Wear a bathing suit because you will get wet.

I am glad to hear you all had a blast. We always like to take care of our locals! Thanks and hope to see you all again soon.
