Welcome to Riptide!

Last updated: 1 July 2011

the cast of Riptide

The adventures of Nick Ryder (Joe Penny, middle) and Cody Allen (Perry King, right), two Vietnam veterans turned private detectives. Oh, and we can't forget Murray "Boz" Bozinsky (Thom Bray, left), an old Army buddy and computer wizard who also joins the agency. The threesome live and work off Cody's boat, the Riptide, docked at Pier 56, Slip 7, King Harbor, (Southern) California. And the Riptide Detective Agency has four big advantages over the bad guys: 1) Cody's speed boat, the Ebbtide, 2) Nick's pink Sikorsky helicopter, The Screamin' Mimi, 3) Murray's faithful robot, the Roboz, as well as 4) friendship and teamwork!
