A note from High-Speed Boat Trip through London
We are VERY Covid aware (our Skipper worked as a vaccinator during lockdown). We have been given the seal of approval by TFL & Visit London. Blackfriars Pier is one of the quietest of London's Piers, so good for avoiding crowds. There is also a reasonably priced car park very close by.

Absolutely awesome! My dad booked this for him, my brother and I, and hands down this was the best activity we did all weekend! It was touch and go at the beginning, as we were waiting on late comers but the organisers Dave and Debbie were incredibly kind and generous by asking our permission to wait for the said latecomers with a beer as compensation - fantastic customer service! The tour began and it was a thrill ride of mammoth proportions! Super speed, super fun, super badass! It was a 45 minute tour but I'd happily have continued for another 45 minutes! Just - book it.

High Speed Thrills. Loved it.
Oct 2021 • Family
Having visited London numerous times for short city breaks, I’ve done lots of fun activities in the city but a High Speed Boat Ride with the Thames Tigers has to be one of the best things I’ve done. Our guide Debbie was so lovely and welcoming. Bouncing off the waves and carving some high speed turns on this powerboat, my family and I couldn’t stop smiling as it was such fun and an incredible way to view some of the city’s most iconic sights. All that was missing was the James Bond theme tune. If you’re a bit of a thrill seeker or just looking for something a little different to do whilst visiting London then get yourself a trip booked with the Thames Tigers. You will not regret it.

A great way to see London
Oct 2021
I had a really enjoyable trip, Debbie and Dave are excellent hosts and make you feel at ease as soon as you arrive. The ride was comfortable - especially during the high-speed parts - and the commentary was great too. It's well worth seeing London from the river.

A 100% "Must Do" when visiting London.
Outstandingly enjoyable experience.
A ten mile speedboat trip up and down the Thames in central London gaining unique views of the ciities most iconic sights.
Should be billed as a "must" for any visit to London.
Hugely enjoyed on a very large powerful, comfortable rib, with some welcome surprises during the trip including complementary beer or soft drinks on board.
Fantastic experience and worth every penny. Big thank you to David & Debbie who made the whole booking from first click to farewells a pleasure.

Hi Gillian, getting on and off a RIB can be the most daunting part of a speedboat trip for some guests, so we were happy for you to take as long as you needed to board. :) Really glad you enjoyed yourself!

What a great experience
What a fantastic time, This was booked as a surprise by my partner for my birthday I didn’t have a clue what we were doing until we arrived. My partner had also booked me a surprise lunch at the shard so advised me to wear a shirt and pants (no coat) this was a mistake on his behalf white shirts and speed boats don’t mix ha ha… however the staff on the boat provided me with a poncho to keep me dry and clean. I can’t tell you how much fun it was we laughed so much bouncing across the water and taking in the views. Overall a fantastic experience and very well organised. Thank you very much

Hi Paul, thank you very much for your fantastic review. Your white shirt and pants may not be the most practical clothes, but you did look fabulous! Hope to see you both again sometime.

TIGERS DOTHIS !
DO DO do this trip ! It exceeded my expectations. I am partial sighted and still really enjoyed this . Special thanks to Debbie who held everyone back so I was able to take my time getting on and off safely and described sights along the way. Our group was aged 22 -51 . We thoroughly enjoyed speeding along with the music pumping ( great music choices David ) we felt like James Bond . Hosts were friendly informative and gave us great directions . Also I had no seasickness which I was worried about . I will be recommending to everyone and I will be back !

Amazing experience!
Oct 2021
It was the best. You won't regret it! It got my dad smiling and laughing a lot. There were complimentary drinks on board which was a nice surprise. Even though with the 5 minutes of rain which was unexpected they took care of us and ensured we were kept warm and dry.

My girlfriend told me that it felt like we were on a giant jet-ski which she loves to do. She liked the birthday surprise that Michelle organised for her.
