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!

Wow! This is a great thing to do in London. We were there for our son's 16th birthday. We were right on the last minute for our ride on 27 November 2016 (you're supposed to turn up 20 minutes before!). However, our supervisor Joe was a real gent and didn't seem to mind doing his safety spiel again. Straight on... More

This was a surprise pressie for my husband's 40th and it was fantastic and so worth the money. It's a brilliant way to see all the landmarks on the Thames and experience a thrilling seeking fast (and windy) ride to the barrier. Highly recommend.

This was one of the best things my husband and I have done. It was a present from me to him for his 70th Birthday. The whole thing was extremely professional, good fun and a brilliant experience. Cannot recommend it enough if you enjoy thrill rides. Would do it again tomorrow if we lived in London!!

Birthday trip for my 13 year old nephew - he and my husband loved it! I won't lie, I had my eyes closed for some of it but just a great experience and the weather was perfect - very cold but the jackets that were supplied kept us nice and cosy :)
