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.

Starts with a gentle ride with commentary about London sights and historic monuments. We had a great tour guide (Joe). followed by high speed ride to Canary Wharf. Lasts 50 minutes.

Location great, departs from London Eye Pier 1. Note that you cannot buy tickets at the pier, you must book in advance.

We didn’t get wet, but they provide good quality wet weather clothing if you want it.

Runs in almost all weather conditions!

Tip- buy tickets via ‘2 for 1 days out’ if you travel by train. Two passengers for £43.50

High speed fun along with a unique perspective of London. The crew treated us with humour and energy - much appreciated on a ‘paid in advance’ tour. Highly recommended - a fun way to spend a few hours.

We really enjoyed the day even though it was raining and cold. We had a fantastic experience, learning about things we didn't know told to us by Stacey and seeing buildings from the other (water) side.

Good way to see the sights from a different perspective free from the jostling crowds, informative witty commentary from MattyP and a great blast

We booked as a treat for our 16 year olds birthday and after having to change the original date due to bad weather we weren’t disappointed. All four of us including our 9 year old daughter loved it. Stacey was a brilliant host and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommended this to anyone
