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!

We went for a birthday day out, it was a fun ride and day spent well. The guides were informative and funny, not to be missed. The speed of the boat starts slow and got fast and the ride was long enough! Will surely go againz

Thanks to our crew, Richard and Brendan for making this a great trip. On arrival we were greeted by welcoming staff who kitted us out with our waterproof/life jackets. We then boarded our high speed boat. Richard enhanced our trip with his wonderful, interesting commentary on the sights that we saw whilst speeding off to the Thames Barrier. Whilst cruising...

Like the title says, the Thames Barrier RIB experience was some of the best fun of my life, and my kids too. I love London and was searching for a way to see the sights, but not boring, droning on, slow. I want fun in London, always. This definitely hit the spot and I shall be booking again at some...
