River Thames Fast RIB-Boat Experience in London

    What to Expect
    Arrive at a meeting point on Westminster Bridge 30 minutes before your fast boat experience, in order to don a waterproof lifejacket and listen to a safety briefing. Then, board your speed boat and prepare for the fun to begin.
    At first, you’ll enjoy a relaxed ride down the Thames River. Take advantage of this leisurely pace and capture photographs of landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and the Tower of London. Your guide will also point out important structures such as HMS Belfast and the National Theater.
    Then, once you go beneath the iconic Tower Bridge, you’ll enter the fast zone. Feel your adrenaline levels surge as your driver accelerates to a speed of 40-mph (35-knots) and you speed towards Canary Wharf.
    Scream with glee as you twist, turn and bounce over waves while listening to lively tunes. Then, catch your breath and return to your original point, where your tour concludes.

    What a ride! Gave us adrenaline boost at the end of our London vacation. We enjoyed the boat, the view, the music, the commentary - everything, no negative comments whatsoever! It lasted about 1 hour, very safe and exciting. Just do it!!!
