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.

Great experience, very comfortable.

We had a great blast up and down the Thames to the barrier and back. The suspension seats are very comfortable and I think the other operators don't have them. Highly recommended.

Wow! Amazing! Highly recommend!

What a fantastic thrill ride! A great way to see London too! It's exciting and Dave and Debbie look after you well. What stands out with Thames Tigers compared to the others is the seating - shock absorbing comfort which is a must on this...More
