The RIB is the closest you will get to experiencing a white knuckle rollercoaster ride on the River Thames! From the moment you arrive at central London’s Embankment pier the entertainment doesn’t stop, as your young and friendly skipper and his team welcome you aboard the boat. As you travel at a leisurely pace towards Canary Wharf, your skipper will give you a comical alternative tour guide to London’s famous landmarks. But before you know it, the Bond theme is playing over the sound system and you are powering up to 45 knots, faster than any other boat on the river. As you near Docklands, the river widens and allows your skipper to really start showing off, spinning the boat round as you hang on for dear life. An exhilarating ride which is not for the faint of heart!

Myself and 4 friends went on the RIB it was brilliant, great for thrill seakers, fast & fun, like a roller coaster. Loved the crew, the music, the speed. Only complaint it went too quick. I will definitely do it again and definitely recommend it. Great fun, great excitement

Myself and my husband had an excellent time on the Thames RIB blast. it was easy to book, easy to find and boarding was smooth. The crew were excellent, informative all the journey, whilst we got to listen to the James Bond theme tune. Would highly recommend!
