Relish the sensation as the highly-trained skipper opens up the engines to take you up the Thames in the fastest and newest boats to hit Central London! The custom-fitted, comfy Ribcraft, capable of speeds of up to 45 knots and helmed by an equally entertaining guide, will thrill you between Embankment pier and Canary Wharf.  You'll be laughing all the way!
Arrive at the dock at the appointed time for a safety briefing before climbing aboard and blasting off down the famous London river! Your trip will last for around 50 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 those celebration trips, you can also purchase a photo of your experience! Waterproof clothing and automatically inflating lifejackets are provided. If you go during the Christmas period you'll even be given a Santa hat to wear on your trip!

the operator and guide were fantastic so funny and so imformative, i learnt so much , but the experience came when they let the rib show us what it can do, and wow it was fast , it was one of the best experiences i have had, they supplied jackets and life jackets and you could take photos when not going full speed, and they played music as well which added to the thrill. the guide took lots of photos of us in the boat, so we could purchase after, really reccomend
