Thames RIB Experience has the fastest and most powerful fleet of high-speed London RIBs on the River Thames; our incredible vessels are fitted with either 740 horse power Yanmar engines or 2 x twin turbo Yamaha engines, for an extreme London sightseeing experience like none other! All of our adrenaline fuelled signature trips involve fascinating guided commentary on the many marvellous modern and historical sights London has to offer, as well as thrilling bouts of high-speed aimed at getting that heart rate pumping for at least the daily recommended 20 minutes! In response to popular demand, we blast the beloved James Bond theme music guaranteed to turn heads as you tear up the Thames in our eye-catching London Speed Boats; all of which designed with maximum fun, safety and comfort in mind. All high-speed Thames RIB boats are fitted with powerful PA stereo systems to ensure any observations from the guide can be heard clearly whilst proceeding at speed, and we provide warm waterproof clothing to ensure you’ll remain high and dry, whatever the weather. So don’t delay - book yourself the RIB-roaring ride of a lifetime today. Fast and furious fun for all, whatever the occasion!

Went today. My wife and I 48 and boy of 12. We had the 50 minute tour. Fantastic time. These boats are fast. Only 12 seats so not packed. Your get given waterproof jackets and life vest. This trip is no fuss with a funny, friendly commentary. My advise. Do it. Pictures at the end for £5 each.

Fast and exciting bumpy and thrilling speedboat down the Thames. Bond music plays while the driver does his stunts. We all laughed all the way. Be careful with camera but recording a must . terrific and got to do it again.

not only do you get to travel at real speed, feeling very James Bond esque- you also pick up an awful lot of really good historical information in the gentle cruise toward Houses of Parliament etc. The team is excellent and very focussed on making sure that you have a good time- well worth doing
