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.

I really really can't fault this company, the trip was interactive and fun (and fast!), and we learnt historical facts all along the river - It really was a brilliant trip!

I would 100% recommend going on this!

Great hour out on the Thames. James was very good when giving us the guided tour of the river, i never knew what Wharf stood for ! The speed section was amazing tho, complete with Baywatch and James Bond music. I had a smile on my face for the full session. Really good and well worth the money. Thanks fellas.

Family of four with kids of 7 and 13, suited us all. The speed was exhilarating and the commentary very funny and informative. Thanks to James and Ian our 'Crew' we would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants something with that little extra...
