Overview

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!

Not many better ways to spend an hour in London. The weather was beautiful and the city looked amazing from the boat. I'd definitely recommend to anyone wanting a bit of a thrill!

Hi, as others have said it is a bit bumpy and you do need to hold on so may be a bit much for you.

And book the longest one - I almost did the 20 minute experience because I was afraid I wouldn't like it. I was SO glad we did the 50 minute one, and I still wished it was longer!

concur pretty much what the others have said. I did see the rocket while we were out. Can't remember the reasons for doing so, maybe it was price and where it went. Didn't have any problems with my choice and enjoyed it.
