Thames RIB Experience


Arrive at the dock at the appointed time for a safety briefing before climbing aboard and blasting off down London famous river! Your trip will last for around 50-60 or 75 minutes and is the closest thing to a white-knuckle ride in Central London, as your skipper takes you through exhilaratingly tight turns and other manoeuvres.

All skippers have travelled extensively on the Thames and boats are designed to ensure passenger comfort and safety at all times. A PA system ensures you can hear your guide clearly at all times, and the soundtrack to your adventure is provided by a high-powered stereo onboard. For celebration trips, you can also purchase a photo of your experience!
