Thames Barrier Speedboat Experience

About Thames Barrier Speedboat Experience

Thames RIB speedboats are certainly the hottest thing on the River Thames this year. And in the largest, fastest power-boats around, there is no better way to experience sightseeing in London!

This fantastic interactive guided tour takes in London’s top landmarks and gives a fascinating insight into their history. Not only do you receive a fun filled guided commentary onboard, but a thrill-packed blast of a ride aboard a London RIB which is like a roller-coaster on water! London surely comes alive at full throttle with the fastest, most exciting Thames speed boat trip you could ever experience. Thames RIB pushes the most famous river in the world into a new ‘turbo’ league of its own - one minute you’ll be cruising gently under Tower Bridge – the next you’re full throttle and racing towards Thames Barrier via Canary Wharf, Greenwich and the O2 at a rate of 50 knots!

To make it even more exciting, all standard trips have a teaser James Bond experience, with a brief insight into the world of international espionage and a blast of the soundtrack to bring the whole experience to life. Each RIB come with a top-of-the-range stereo sound system so even at high speed, you can hear the music playing and also hear all the information you need to make your trip exciting and informative. And you can ask as many questions as you like!
