Described as 'The most thrilling way to see London from the River...' by Time Out - Thames RIB Experience truly pushes the world's most famous river into a new 'turbo' league of its own with the largest and fastest London speedboats operating on the River Thames.

These fantastic sightseeing tours take in London's top landmarks and give a fascinating insight into their history, not only do you receive a fun filled guided commentary on-board but a packed adrenaline London speed boat blast which is like a roller-coaster on water!

They are the only boats in Central London with an on-board PA and stereo sound system so you can hear all the information at high-speed plus with a blast of the James Bond soundtrack on either of the trips, it really is an exhilarating experience. One minute you'll be cruising gently under Tower Bridge... the next you're full throttle at a rate of 50 knots blasting towards either Canary Wharf or the Thames Barrier!

THE CANARY WHARF EXPERIENCE offers more of London in just less than an hour than any other conventional sightseeing trip - this exhilarating Thames speed boat ride represents fantastic value for money. Be enthralled by the history as you take in views of The Houses of Parliament, HMS Belfast, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Execution Dock to name but a few, before turbo powering towards Canary Wharf and back in these fantastic powerboats. Pure high speed fun for all the family!

THE THAMES BARRIER EXPERIENCE is the fantastic extended tour, not only will you experience all that the Canary Wharf Experience has to offer but you'll also see the wonderful historical Greenwich where the world of navigation begun, plus more high speed fun blasting around the O2 before powering on to the Thames Flood Barrier.
