Full description
See London from your very own super-fast RIB speedboat.  Your boat can take up to 12 passengers in safety and comfort on quality suspension seats.  Choose where you would like to be picked up from and dropped off at.  Plan your own route and what music to accompany the wonderful sights, or if you prefer, just leave it all to the speedboat crew and enjoy the ride. You'll be kitted out against the weather and given the latest automatic lifejackets to wear by the friendly and experienced crew. Cruise past Big Ben, the Tower of London and other iconic sights of this great city.  Get the selfie of all selfies as you pass under Tower Bridge and afterwards blast through historic Wapping at 35mph (56km per hour) to Canary Wharf, then Cutty Sark at Greenwich and the O2 Arena.  Pass through the magnificent Thames Flood Barrier and back for the ride that you'll never forget.
