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!

From the moment we checked in, till the end of the trip, it was fantastic. The guys on the RIB were great, and the commentary informative and amusing. When they opened the engines up just after Tower Bridge, it was truly exhilarating. All in all a great experience which we would happily do again.

We had the choice of seeing London from the Eye or by boat and so glad we chose this option. Tony and Tom were great hosts, with a great sense of humour and we had such a great trip. The boat goes at a gentle pace up to Tower Bridge giving you a chance to see many of the major... More
