Amazing Surf Experience!

Came to visit from Colorado with my boyfriend and we decided we wanted to trade our snowboards for surfboards. Found Riptide online and was far from disappointed! These guys know what they’re doing and make learning something new so effortless and fun! Our instructors were Kyle and Corey and they were the nicest and most laid back guys but knew how to get down to business. In less than an hour we were standing up on our boards with ease, they really made the experience exciting and even gave us great recommendations on places to go in the area while we were there. Really great company, we are already planning a kayak tour with them for our next visit in May. We can’t wait!


Great service!

Would highly recommend Riptide! We used their chairs and umbrellas during our stay on Amelia Island. Everything was set up where we wanted it, on time and everyone we talked to was very nice. This service really helped to make our stay perfect.


One stop for all your beach activities!

Last minute my husband and I decided to take advantage of what our local area Amelia Island has to offer. Just going on word of mouth we didn’t need to look any further than Riptide for our water excursion. Very accommodating and informative our guide was able to book us on a same day paddle board excursion. We saw lots of wildlife from dolphins, seagulls, and pelicans. Our guide even slowed down at several spots for good photo ops. The pictures we took of the scenic waterway will be great additions to frame for our house. Riptide also offers boating trips and kayak excursions, as well as full beach chair/umbrella set up which we will be sure to check out very soon! Their tours are very professional and they can accommodate anything from a small family outing to a family reunion, even business functions/tours! Support local and go with Riptide the next time you decide to spend a day on beautiful Amelia Island!


Five stars for convenience and wonderful service.

I contacted Riptide to rent an umbrella for the weekend. They were prompt in getting back to me, as well as being super helpful. They set up our umbrella exactly where we asked them to set it up. It was there by 9, and they removed it at 5. For the first time in years, we didn't have to worry about taking our own umbrella or tent, or worry about wind gusts blowing it down the beach. Our time was spent relaxing and enjoying the beautiful beach! We have already told friends about the wonderful service from your company!


Confident Kyle

Last spring I took a kayak journey led by Kyle throughout the fantastic area surrounding Amelia Island. Honestly could not recommend an experience more! He is a kind and knowledgeable young man this company should be proud to employ. The nature I witnessed that day was unparalleled. Thank you Kyle!!
