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.

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

Booked based on positive reviews, and wasn’t disappointed. Easy and quick boarding process, fun and informative tour, with added bonus of fun speed with music. Had my 7 year old son and 80+ uncle with us and all enjoyed.

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.
