Thames High-Speed Zone RIB Cruise in London

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Ditch the leisurely pace of traditional sightseeing cruises in favor of a high-speed RIB boat ride on the Thames River—the most exhilarating way to see London’s riverside sights. Unlike other high-speed cruises, this ride operates entirely within the “Thames High-Speed Zone,” meaning you are able to travel at super speeds for the entire experience. Plus, a small group limited to 12 means ensures you receive personalized attention from your guide.
  • Opt for an exhilarating sightseeing cruise experience on the Thames River
  • Ride without speed limits in the river's high-speed zone
  • Small group tour limited to 12 people ensures a more personalized experience
  • Choose from several departure times throughout the day
What to Expect
After selecting a departure time to suit your schedule, make your own way to a docking point along the Thames River and receive a safety briefing from your guide. After donning a life jacket and climbing on board your rigid inflatable boat (RIB), set off along the Thames River at high velocity to a soundtrack of British rock classics. Zoom past Tower Bridge, the O2 Arena, and the Cutty Sark and reach speeds of up to 35 mph (56 kph), as your skipper performs exhilarating wave jumps and sharp turns. Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Absolutely fantastic and totally recommended. Loved every second of it (and I’m not usually good on water). Greg’s banter was fun and light hearted, and Richard kept us skilfully flying along at excessive speeds. It was thoroughly enjoyable despite less than ideal weather.

We decided to go for the high speed boat trip and chose this company because it was #1 on TripAdvisor. The two people who took us down the Thames (sorry I've forgotten your names as it was a couple of months ago now) were fantastic and travelling at speed was thrilling and great

We have done the 'normal' boats in the Thames before and the kids got a bit bored by the end, so we thought we'd try something different this time and we were not disappointed. The tour guide was friendly and fun from start to finish and seemed genuinely interested in making
