Ditch the leisurely pace of traditional sightseeing cruises in favor of a high-speed RIB boat ride on the Thames River—the most exhilarating way to see London’s riverside sights. Unlike other high-speed cruises, this ride operates entirely within the “Thames High-Speed Zone,” meaning you’ll be able to travel at super speeds for the entire experience. Plus, a small group limited to 12 means you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.

What to Expect

After selecting a departure time to suit your schedule, you’ll make your own way to a docking point along the Thames River and receive a safety briefing from your guide. After donning a life jacket and climbing on board your rigid inflatable boat (RIB), you’ll set off along the Thames River at high velocity to a soundtrack of British rock classics.

Zoom past Tower Bridge, the O2 Arena, and the Cutty Sark and reach speeds of up to 35 mph (56 kph), as your skipper performs exhilarating wave jumps and sharp turns.

Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Hi, it depends which package you book as they differ. Ours was 90 minutes, which is the longest one they do I think.
