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.

Amy the guide & Paul the skipper were a fantastic duo.
She was witty, very knowledgeable & very friendly.
Paul made it a fun filled experience. Definitely recommend. We're doing it again.

So glad we chose to do this. Entertaining and interesting commentary by Little Mike and then - wow! What a ride, brilliantly driven by Ian with great musical accompaniment. Scary, exciting and just the best fun. Highly recommended.

Big thanks to little Mike and Nick for a super jaunt down the Thames on the RIB. Mike's commentary was enthusiastic and perfectly delivered. The whole team were warm, welcoming and reassuring to the scottish scaredy cats. Loving the music- "titanic" great irony- thankfully. Value for money- absolutely! Thanks guys super trip well done. See you again for sure. Marj

We had the most amazing trip on the Thames RIB and cannot recommend it highly enough. Little Mike was just awesome. So enthusiastic, entertaining and very informative. Great knowledge of London and we learned so many new facts. The music was very apt and amusing and the speed (by Nick) was so exhilarating!. This is the best tour of the Thames and you will not be disappointed : )

Went with work colleagues one evening and the experience was beyond expectations. Little Mike was friendly and pointed out quite a few historic facts which, even though we work in London, we didn't know. All the crew were friendly and fun.Would definitely recommend this.
