Satisfy your appetite for adventure on this high-speed Thames River cruise, the ideal choice for thrill-seekers visiting London. Rather than cruising past landmarks at a leisurely pace, you’ll experience a series of exhilarating twists and turns set to a soundtrack of high-octane music. Plus, a 20- and 40-minute option, and more than 10 departure times throughout the day, are available to suit all budgets and schedules.
What to Expect
Depending on the departure time selected at checkout, you’ll make your way to launch point along the Thames River. After receiving a safety briefing, you’ll board your rigid inflatable boat (RIB) and set off on a Thames River cruise that’s different from the rest.
As the music blares from an onboard speaker, you’ll pass landmarks, such as The Shard, City Hall, HMS Belfast, and Canary Wharf. Once you’re past Tower Bridge, the speed restriction is lifted and you’ll go full-throttle, as your skipper delivers twists and turns guaranteed to make a splash. Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Fantastic experience!

We went on the RIB today as a family of 6 (age range from 9-45) and everyone absolutely loved it. Captain Birdseye and Luke were brilliant hosts and made the experience! Would 100% recommend.

I took my 12 yr old son and two of his classmates on the ride. Very pleasant welcome and short, but informative, safety brief. The waterproof jackets were superb on a cold September day. The ride itself was brilliant and scary at the same time....More

Super, scintillating, thrilling high-speed ride Bond-style down Thames to Canary Wharf and back - bouncing, splashing, swerving. Exhilarating. Expertly done. Full waterproofing, life jackets all provided and of top quality. Commentary and belting music all great fun. 11-year-old and 74-year-old both loved it to bits.

Thank Rodney P

I would think the answer would be no due to liability issues. Also there is a lot of traffic on the Thames and you could hear the radio traffic back an forth with police and various pilots
