About
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 are able to travel at super speeds for the entire experience. Plus, a small group limited to 12 means ensures you receive personalized attention from your guide.

Thames Rocket Break the Barrier
Booked for husband as he loves a boat and being on the water. I am absolutely terrified but that’s love eh? The guides were great I think they were Joey and Richard. Gentle ride from city pier to the Police station where they then open it up and twist and turn to make it exhilarating (or terrifying depending on your thoughts about being on what can only be described as an inflatable dinghy). You don’t get wet but can be very cold. Worth the money I thought, good 40 minutes and get to see landmarks from a different perspective, little bit of history en route some nice little nuggets of interesting facts rather than full on tour guide. If I wasn’t so terrified I would do again.

Excellent trip and great value for money. The trip I took was perfect for those with a young family; i was with my wife and 3 year old son who both thoroughly enjoyed it. Max was our tour guide and he too was excellent, knowledgeable and funny.

Great team night out
I took the team out for a sightseeing tour of London. Some of whom had just arrived from India. Absolutely amazing experience for everyone and seeing London lit up at night was breath taking.

Fabulous trip with fantastic guides
Oct 2021
Living so close to London, I am surprised that I have only just done this. I was amazed how much fun it was, and that's coming from an adrenaline freak (skydiving etc.)

Great fun and the BEST guide Joey - he had me in stitches of laughter and I even learnt a lot! Also a big thanks to the skipper Richard.. and grateful for his 30 years experience :)

Absolutely amazing trip today with Max and apologies if I’m wrong but think the skipper was Nick, such a fantastic experience amazingly good fun, great enthusiasm from the crew and a great way to see the sights. Good knowledge from the crew and interesting facts. Highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of going. Best part of your trip to London, thank you so much.

Excellent London boat experience
What an exciting great fun family activity. My daughter loved every minute. She hasn’t stopped smiling since we got back on dry land. An absolute must if your planning to see London from the river. Simon (our captain) did a wonderful job finding the biggest waves and Bill (our guide) was very knowledgeable about London by the river and brought lots of humour to his excellent commentary.
Fabulous day out and thank you so very much.
