Owner description: The original, fastest and most exhilarating sightseeing speedboats on the river Thames today. Thames Rockets set sail in 2006 offering these unique sightseeing adventures to the public for the very first time. More experience, more style and more returning passengers year on year. Slice through London at 30 knots as the Thames is eaten up by 630hp of engine power. Zoom under the capital’s famous bridges and marvel at London’s landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year. Perfect for birthday celebrations, unique dates, reunions, family outings, groups of friends, staff gatherings, hen & stag do's, corporate entertaining, team building, engagements, school outings and more.Suitable for all ages 1 to 101! Toddlers and grandma alike willl love this speedy experience. This ultimate sightseeing adventure is great whatever the weather, wet weather kit provided for all ages and sizes."Five star" rating from London's Timeout Magazine, awarded a "Gold Tourist Attraction" in first year of sailing.

I would definitely recommend this trip to all my relatives/friends from abroad to learn about and be able to have a great insight into some of our most historical sights. Even a local like myself discovered things I didn't know and the factual side was made extremely interesting and comical by our fab tourguide 'Ginger Mike'!

Took our nephew out on this trip as he's a bit of an adrenalin junkie! We had brilliant weather and once we got past the Police launch it was time to let rip! The music added to the experience and there was plenty of time to get the sense of exhilaration around Canary Wharf. Great to see the usual sights of London from a different perspective and great humorous commentary from the guys on board. Good job, and thanks!!

Brought this for my hubby's birthday back in June. No hassle to book it up & we just racked up with our tickets no queuing. Got offered extra waterproof jacket & kitted out with life jacket. The first part of our journey we made our way up the Thames with Tom, the most witty and funny tour guide you could ask for, pointing out all the landmarks as we went. Then the best bit is when the boat driven by another Tom, lets rip with the sound track of James Bond blasting in your ears......... Ride lasts aprox 50mins but is worth every penny. I can't rave about this trip enough. Thanks to the team for making our dayout in London something to remember.............

Went with my family (youngest is 7). We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the very entertaining and informative commentary by Amy and the thrill of the speed of the boat over the water - expertly handled by Ian.
