What Can I Expect

Be together onboard your Thames RIB charter and have a blast on the river! These charters give you exclusive use of the fully crewed speedboat for up to 12 people to enjoy the sights and sounds of London from the water.

These iconic bright red speedboats are well-known on the Thames. Operating all year round, you'll see parts of the capital you don't normally see. Setting off from the pier at the London Eye means you're in the thick of the big-hitter London landmarks from the word go.

It's all quite an experience onboard, as there'll be a guide riding on the RIB with you who'll be hosting your exclusive trip on the Thames. They're upbeat and outgoing, well-known for their banter and sense of humour, so you and your party can expect to be entertained throughout the 50-minute return journey.

Of course, safety is paramount. All skippers are fully qualified and you might find they're also RYA instructors or even ex-Wapping River Police, so highly experienced too! The operator, who has been running tours on the Thames since 2006, is an accredited covid-secure venue and all trips comply with current measures.

Being a private tour, the RIB boat, the skipper and the guide are all yours for the duration. There's also a rather fancy sound system on these vessels, so you can pick the tunes to accompany your exclusive Thames adventure. How about singing along to ‘Cry Me a River' or crooning to ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water'?

As you can tell, these charters are going to be fun. Brace yourself for some fast bits too, as once you're out of the speed limit zone, your skipper will be able to open up the boat's throttle and go at some speed on the Thames. And being low in the water, it's incredibly rare to get seasick, just watch out for the spray in your face on windy days. And if it's raining, you'll be kitted out in full waterproofs, which is all part of the fun!

We think these exclusive Thames RIB charters are great value money and they're sure to give you and your group a fun (and safe) day out that'll certainly blow away any cobwebs and put a smile on your face. That's got to be worth a lot these days. Gather your group and book in now.
