This London Thames speedboat taster is a high-speed, musical thrill ride through the heart of the capital. Climb aboard a 630bhp speedboat and embark on a unique, 15-minute sightseeing tour that’s sure to blow away the cobwebs!
Trips depart from St. Katherine’s Pier, in the shadow of Tower Bridge. On arrival, you’ll be welcomed by a friendly staff member and issued with life jackets. After a short safety briefing, your skipper will power up the custom-built, twin four-stroke engines and guide you downstream. The exhilarating, 15-minute ride will take you past fascinating landmarks, like the Shard, the Square Mile, HMS Belfast, Katharine Docks, Wapping River Police HQ, and Canary Wharf. They’ll be high-speed twists and turns, plus a kick-ass soundtrack drawn from the last sixty years of pop hits. You’ll reach speeds of up to 35mph, before returning to St. Katherine’s Pier – windswept and crying out for more!
