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!

This was a treat for my boyfriend for his birthday. It was really fun and the staff were very friendly! A lovely experience. I gave it 4 and not 5 stars as i felt it could have gone a bit faster at times and perhaps done a bit more turns :) I did the trip from Tower Hill! I would... More

My husband chartered the whole boat for his fathers surprise 60th birthday for all the family which as you can imagine cost a small fortune. He booked it for 1pm with a lot of negotiations as the company stated very clearly they do not normally set off later than 12pm. The family had another event planned beforehand which unfortunately overrun... More

Wow! This is a great thing to do in London. We were there for our son's 16th birthday. We were right on the last minute for our ride on 27 November 2016 (you're supposed to turn up 20 minutes before!). However, our supervisor Joe was a real gent and didn't seem to mind doing his safety spiel again. Straight on... More

This was a surprise pressie for my husband's 40th and it was fantastic and so worth the money. It's a brilliant way to see all the landmarks on the Thames and experience a thrilling seeking fast (and windy) ride to the barrier. Highly recommend.

This was one of the best things my husband and I have done. It was a present from me to him for his 70th Birthday. The whole thing was extremely professional, good fun and a brilliant experience. Cannot recommend it enough if you enjoy thrill rides. Would do it again tomorrow if we lived in London!!
