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!

On the way out to the Thames barrier, the tour guide humorously shared his knowledge of London's landmarks and bridges that we passed along the way. On the way back to the embankment pier.... High speed fun!! My son and I really enjoyed this experience

We had a great trip along the Thames seeing the sights and learning a little history. Gliding past tower bridge then the fun really began. Amazing fun I was smiling for the rest of the day.

This was a really good experience. Staff really friendly. I would have liked more time at top speed, but this is river restrictions nothing to do with the company Would recommend, you don't have to be too brave, but my wife was a bit scared

I've done the RIB ride before and it's a really fun and lovely way to see the river and sights along it. I just thought that our guide seemed very bored of the seemingly repetitive role, when she was informing us about the sights I couldn't understand everything she said as she spoke so fast and she suddenly started taking...
