We have 2 types of River Thames RIB Experiences you can book. This is the “Ultimate Speed Experience” which is 40 minutes of.. you guessed it, speed!. For more sightseeing included – click here to check out the “Canary Wharf RIB Experience” which is 50 minutes of sightseeing and speed.
Here’s one for the extremer’s. The Ultimate Tower Thames RIB Blast is an all action 40 minute round trip from Tower Pier giving you more speed for your buck! Feel the roar as we unleash the beast of our 740hp twin turbo engines.
This mighty Thames RIB Experience gives a minimal laugh out loud commentary, a few amazing sights but most importantly it is all about the speed so prepare to Hold On Tight!
Outward bound to the Thames Flood Barrier, no speed restrictions at Tower Pier so we can give all on board the sheer speed and adrenaline experience they will love, all to James Bond music blasting out from our fab onboard PA, turn and then roar back up river inward bound to Tower Pier for them to disembark.

Here’s how we got on 👇
“We had an absolute blast on the Thames RIB Ride speed boat experience! If you’re looking for a brilliant way to learn about the capital city from a new perspective, this is a great trip.
Our tour guide was so funny and really made the experience, along with some singalong tunes from the boat as we sped up. Great experience for thrill seekers
