Owner description: The original, fastest and most exhilarating sightseeing speedboats on the river Thames today. Thames Rockets set sail in 2006 offering these unique sightseeing adventures to the public for the very first time. More experience, more style and more returning passengers year on year. Slice through London at 30 knots as the Thames is eaten up by 630hp of engine power. Zoom under the capital’s famous bridges and marvel at London’s landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year. Perfect for birthday celebrations, unique dates, reunions, family outings, groups of friends, staff gatherings, hen & stag do's, corporate entertaining, team building, engagements, school outings and more.Suitable for all ages 1 to 101! Toddlers and grandma alike willl love this speedy experience. This ultimate sightseeing adventure is great whatever the weather, wet weather kit provided for all ages and sizes."Five star" rating from London's Timeout Magazine, awarded a "Gold Tourist Attraction" in first year of sailing.

“London Rib Voyages - Breathtaking and educational!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

We took two boats down the Thames as part of an action packed hen weekend. This was an excellent start to our day with breaktaking moments both from the speeds that we reached and the amazing London scenery that we saw from the River. Our captain was amazing, full of interesting facts and although the majority of us have lived in London for many years we learnt a lot about our capital that day. I would strongly recommended this to anyone wanting to learn more about London, to see this beautiful city from a slightly different angle and who loves the thrill of whizzing along at nearly 40mph, so much fun!
