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.

Exhilarating trip up the Thames to the barrier on Easter Saturday. Despite the icy temperatures the guide Jeff was full of fun and bonhomie and volunteered to take photos to remember the occasion. Learned great titbits of London trivia too.

We booked this as one of our Christmas treats! What a treat it was!!!
The Thames rocket is a mixture of high speed fun with a bit of a guided tour!
We were booked on the 13:00 trip, once fitted with life jackets we boarded the orange rocket!! The high powered craft was piloted by Phil and our guide/ shipmate was Stacey.
We set off at a conservative pace being promised a upgrade of speed after tower bridge! We what can I say as promised we herd the engine noise increase and expertly handled by Phil the craft motored along a speed!!! Combined with some cool manoeuvres the experience was excellent!!! Wind and spray in yer face!!
On the return journey Stacey gave us an informative on the surrounding London landmarks, my fav was the bus driver and tower bridge (no spoilers) I would say the expertise of both Phil and Stacey made our trip! We laughed and enjoyed the whole experience! Well done Thames Rockets!!!
Thank you !

Bought this as a 21st Birthday present for my daughter, have to say it was brilliant....Geoff with a G was a fantastic guide and managed to mortify my daughter by getting everyone to sing to her under deadmans bridge, the fast driving after tower bridge was fantastic thanks Nick!
