Thames RIB Experience has the fastest and most powerful fleet of high-speed London RIBs on the River Thames; our incredible vessels are fitted with either 740 horse power Yanmar engines or 2 x twin turbo Yamaha engines, for an extreme London sightseeing experience like none other! All of our adrenaline fuelled signature trips involve fascinating guided commentary on the many marvellous modern and historical sights London has to offer, as well as thrilling bouts of high-speed aimed at getting that heart rate pumping for at least the daily recommended 20 minutes! In response to popular demand, we blast the beloved James Bond theme music guaranteed to turn heads as you tear up the Thames in our eye-catching London Speed Boats; all of which designed with maximum fun, safety and comfort in mind. All high-speed Thames RIB boats are fitted with powerful PA stereo systems to ensure any observations from the guide can be heard clearly whilst proceeding at speed, and we provide warm waterproof clothing to ensure you’ll remain high and dry, whatever the weather. So don’t delay - book yourself the RIB-roaring ride of a lifetime today. Fast and furious fun for all, whatever the occasion!

Birthday suprise!

A great experience had today by myself and 4 friends. Tom & Jon were fantastic, despite me having a wobble half way. Would recommend to those who love high speed boat rides!

My partner treated me and our two boys aged 7 and 11 to this amazing river tour in a high-speed boat along the Thames. We were given warm waterproof jackets and of course life jackets too. There is the option of having waterproof trousers too and I would recommend this if the weather is not so favourable - but we... More

Richard, Dave and Fiona, great experience they made it special for our birthdays and made us feel comfortable. Probably not so good for under 6 or 7's though as it's fast and bumpy!

A brilliant experience! We treated our two children (11) and (12). We all enjoyed every minute. The sights of London are amazing! When the boat gets past the Tower of London you go sooooo fassssst - The guide was funny and informative and the lady at the ticket desk was really helpful and friendly. I cannot recommend it enough!

Xmas present for family. I loved the jokes in the commentary as well as the twists and turns on the ride. The wind was bitterly cold at high speed but that didn't interfere with the exhilaration.

Awesome way to see London. We did the 75 minute Thames Barrier Experience, worth every penny. Great fun, loved the high speed zig-zagging and cheesy James Bond music! The staff - Fiona, Tim & Bo were very friendly and welcoming. Can't fault, would recommend and do it again.

On a cold and rainy day in February my son and I had an absolute ball. Brendan and Tom looked after us and gave us an unbelievably brilliant trip. We loved every minute of it. Top experience. I would recommend it to anyone - do it - you'll enjoy it.

used all the rib companies on the Thames and this is the best one, loveliest staff, great commentary and even as a Londoner born and bred I learn something new every time from their "on board chats" before the pedal hits the metal so to speak. We went in February half term as we wanted to blast the winter away... More
