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!

My partner treated me and our two boys aged 7 and 11 to this amazing river tour in a high-speed boat along the Thames. We were given warm waterproof jackets and of course life jackets too. There is the option of having waterproof trousers too and I would recommend this if the weather is not so favourable - but we... More

Richard, Dave and Fiona, great experience they made it special for our birthdays and made us feel comfortable. Probably not so good for under 6 or 7's though as it's fast and bumpy!

A brilliant experience! We treated our two children (11) and (12). We all enjoyed every minute. The sights of London are amazing! When the boat gets past the Tower of London you go sooooo fassssst - The guide was funny and informative and the lady at the ticket desk was really helpful and friendly. I cannot recommend it enough!
