Owner description: The original, fastest and most exhilarating sightseeing speedboats on the river Thames today. Thames Rockets set sail in 2006 offering these unique sightseeing adventures to the public for the very first time. More experience, more style and more returning passengers year on year. Slice through London at 30 knots as the Thames is eaten up by 630hp of engine power. Zoom under the capital’s famous bridges and marvel at London’s landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year. Perfect for birthday celebrations, unique dates, reunions, family outings, groups of friends, staff gatherings, hen & stag do's, corporate entertaining, team building, engagements, school outings and more.Suitable for all ages 1 to 101! Toddlers and grandma alike willl love this speedy experience. This ultimate sightseeing adventure is great whatever the weather, wet weather kit provided for all ages and sizes."Five star" rating from London's Timeout Magazine, awarded a "Gold Tourist Attraction" in first year of sailing.

This is such a great way to see the sites and spend time with the kids. My children (11 and 3) loved it and asked to go back again for their Easter treat, they are not usually keen on sightseeing but I think it was the speed that they enjoyed the most. The staff were brilliant and kept it fun for all of us. Highly reccomended!

I took my girlfriend on this trip a few weeks ago and we had an amazing time whizzing up and down the Thames! So much fun, the guides are so funny and actually want to talk to you rather than some of the other boat trips that use microphones. The speed bit was fantastic, my girlfriend screamed, I laughed, we've not had so much fun together in a long time. Recommended to all!

What a fantastic adventure, the kids absolutely loved it!
The staff were very helpful and informative, but bizarrely funny!
It was a wet day and cold, but that didn't make a difference and just added to the excitement with the wind against my face.
In the words of my 5 year old son "Wicked!", great fun for all ages.

This is definatley a trip not to be missed. The kids loved it. We got to see the sites of London in all directions, while speeding past all the other boats on the river. The kids loved it when we went full speed. They kept giggling and didn't want it to stop. I would definatley recommend this to everyone.
