What You Can Expect

River Thames High-Speed Cruise from Embankment Pier

Thames River High-Speed Cruise

Depart from an embarking point near Embankment, central London, and greet your knowledgeable guide on the pier. Listen to a brief orientation talk and don your life jacket before climbing aboard your impressive RIB speedboat, capable of reaching 50 knots per hour.

Select between two adrenaline-fueled tours depending on which sights you’re most interested in seeing; experience a 50-minute Canary Wharf tour for unrivaled views of the Tower of London, HMS Belfast, the Houses of Parliament and the Execution Dock. 

Alternatively, opt for the 80-minute Thames Barrier Experience to enjoy sweeping vistas of Greenwich and the colossal Thames Barrier. Cruise at high speed around the O2 Arena, the filming location of James Bond film The World is Not Enough, while listening to classic hits on the state-of-the-art speaker system.

Throughout your adventurous excursion, you'll hear commentary and music on a modern sound system and feel the adrenaline rush of high velocity speeds. After your rip-roaring ride on the Thames River, you'll return to your original departure point and bid your guide farewell.

Very much fun on a beautiful August afternoon!! After clearing the speed zones past Tower Bridge, they were able to open up the V8 engines and it was great gliding over the Thames River at speed with the wind in your hair! Good sightseeing guide on board as well.

Exactly as described Good fun and very safe but I would recommend a hat and scarf as it is very windy and cold at high speed
Guide was quite witty too.

Took this exciting ride last Saturday with my 22 year old daughter and we loved it! The ride starts off at a pleasant cruising speed as the friendly and funny guide points out major landmarks along the way. About 20 minutes into the ride they hit the throttle and crank up the music as you race down the river towards Canary Wharf and then back again. Just the right amount of speed , action and thrills for people of all ages.

I highly recommend this tour!!! Its a lot of fun, you see all the major sights along the Thames and you are in a small boat - so it's almost a private experience all the normal Thames sightseeing boats are so big and crowded.
