Enjoy an alternative and thrilling way to explore London when you book tickets to a high-speed boat tour along the River Thames. Meet at Blackfriars Pier and hop aboard one of the largest Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB) on the river. After a safety briefing, grab your lifejacket and get ready to zoom past landmarks like Shakespeare’s Globe, the Shard, the Tower of London, and more. The boat reaches speeds of up to 35 mph (56 kph), so you’re guaranteed a rousing journey.
What to Expect
You'll be welcomed at Blackfriars Pier and given protective clothing, a lifejacket and a full safety briefing.  You'll take your place onboard, in an Ullman suspension seat (the type used by the military and police).  We'll head off down river, past Tate Modern; Millennium Bridge; Shakespeare's Globe; The Shard; London Bridge; The Tower of London; Tower Bridge.  Then we'll let it rip!  You'll blast through historic Wapping, past Canary Wharf and the Cutty Sark at Greenwich.  We'll do a high speed turn at the O2 Arena and blast back; all accompanied by great music.  You'll spend 45 minutes on the river; a 45 minutes you'll never forget!  Our boats were built for offshore work and super-safe, and don't worry about being thrown around; we are the only speedboat on the river to have suspension seats to protect you from the shock and vibration.  Our skipper and guide are highly experienced and very friendly and welcoming.
