This Ultimate London Adventure was the first of its kind in London, and is still the best. The Thames Rockets take you on a jam-packed 50 minute cruise along the Thames, reaching high speeds for the adrenaline-fuelled ride of your life!
The new Thames Rockets speedboats is a new generation of River transport, hurtling you through the water as you marvel at the riverside landmarks of London. There’s 2000 years of history to discover on these shores, and this ride is just the ticket to experience it.
With commentary from award winning, handpicked guides who keep the facts, banter and laughs flowing, you’ll learn lots of new information about the city from these closet history buffs.
Once the history lesson is over it’s time to properly hit the waves, with combined 630hp engines cranking the speed up to an exhilarating 30 knots as you pass by Canary Wharf. Accompanied by the Thames Rockets soundtrack of classic feel-good tunes, you’ll leave the other tour boats bobbing in the wake as you speed back to the pier.
You will undergo a safety briefing on site. Wet weather gear is provided for all ages and sizes. The tour runs in all weather conditions.
Please be aware that only in the event of poor visibility (for example, thick fog) may a trip be cancelled at very short notice. Very rarely, when a vessel has not reached its minimum sailing capacity, we will contact you the day before to amend your tour time to the nearest available slot.
