This speed enhanced tour of the River Thames allows you to share something different. You’ll take a journey through the city at up to 35knots as the Thames is beaten up by the 880hp of engine on your RIB. This energetic tour zooms through the river amidst one of the greatest open air history museums in the world.

Your guides won’t quit with the intelligent banter and you’ll be taken past London Bridge, Canary Wharf, Greenwich, the O2 and on through the Thames Barrier. This tour differs to the run of the mill lot as the two of you may just get to experience, if the guides are up to showing off on the day, a few exciting boat manoeuvres as the Thames widens further up the river.

What's Included?

  • 80 minute high speed cruise from Millennium Pier to the Thames Barrier and back
  • See London’s most famous landmarks and bridges
  • Be entertained by the experienced tour guide on board

"Whizzing down the Thames!"

Brilliant and exhilarating boat ride along the river! Craig gave us a brief history lesson and lots of laughs interspersed with Andy opening up the throttle and racing to the Thames barrier and back.

Just to let you know that the three of us had a wonderful time on our trip on Friday afternoon.The experience of zooming up and down the Thames and seeing the rapid display of historic sites and notable trivia was fantastic.
Our guide (Amy) kept us thoroughly informed and entertained, and our driver (Tom) thrilled us with what the boat could do. This is a great way to enjoy the Thames and to sample one of the great cities of the world.
The one hour and twenty minutes whizzed by! We will definitely be back for more – and will bring our friends and family.

"Thames Barrier Rocket Speed Boat - lots of fun!"

Although the weather was grey and cold it didn't spoil our fun of our Thames Barrier Rocket Speed Boat. We were given life vests to wear at the beginning and it felt safe. Our journey was the longest one you could go on and it was worth it seeing the sights along the Thames past the Thames Barrier. The crew were fun and shared interesting facts with us along the way. You get a different perspective of London being out on the water and it makes an unusual present for someone special as in my case
