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!

Unforgettable birthday treat! Fantastic way to see London from a different perspective. The crew's commentary was both informative and amusing - their very apt 'sound effects' only added to the enjoyment. For anyone who enjoys the thrill of speed then this experience is definitely one not to be missed. An all-round brilliant gift. 22 June 2014
RIB Shaker! Great fun chasing and crossing wakes, plenty of bounces and sudden changes of direction. The slow tootle under the bridges was a great change. Wonderful way to see the changing riverside. Yes I'd do it again. Personal safety equipment is excellent. 14 June 2014
Awesome! This has to be the best way to view London by the river. I bought thisv a birthday, we did the Thames Barrier experience. The commentary was very informative and light humoured. The RIB proper opens up the speed once you get past Tower Bridge with James Bond soundtrack in the background. A great trip for adults and kids! 13 June 2014
