What to expect

Unleash your inner adrenaline junkie on a 40-minute high-speed cruise on the Thames River in London. You'll board your modern RIB (rigid-inflatable boat) with an expert skipper and guide. Feel the thrill as you speed through the British capital at speeds of up to 35 miles (56 km) per hour.

Travel through time with tunes ranging from the modern day back to the 1960’s. There’s something for everyone as you strap yourselves in for a ‘rocket ride’ down memory lane. Settle in and hold on tight for 40 minutes of nothing but twists and turns, of rocks and rolls through the docklands, past maritime Greenwich, round the legendary O2 arena and beyond to the Thames Barrier and back.

Zoom past top London attractions including Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and many more iconic London sights.
