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!

I booked the Canarf Wharf Experience trip for me and my goddaughter, which took us up river to Westminster then down river past Tower Bridge. The first part was interesting enough with a little commentary on the various sights by the river. However, the real...More

Brilliant speedboat trip down the Thames. Would recommend if you are a thrill seeker. The guides give you information about different buildings, bridges and areas along the route outbound. Coming back is when the speed starts up.

Had a great time, really good fun. Olly & Brendan were excellent. Great way to see the sights. I've been up and down the Thames numerous times on the clippers but this is a great way with the added bonus of going very fast

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.
