Small-Group River Thames High-Speed Cruise from Tower Millennium Pier


Excursion Overview

Blast along the River Thames with your choice of 20- or 40-minute round-trip speedboat cruises from Tower Millennium Pier. Once suited up, sit back and take in the view as you head along the river past the Tower of London and under Tower Bridge. Then its throttle time! Feel the throttle of the RIB (rigid inflatable boat) engine as you roar along the River Thames toward Canary Wharf (and past Greenwich to the O2 arena on the  40 minute option). Thrill in the high speeds and intense wave crashing action at full power all the way back to the Tower Pier. Small-group trips are limited to a maximum of 12 people.

What You Can Expect

At your selected departure time, meet your captain at the Tower Millennium Pier, close to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge to begin your 20 or 40 minute high-speed river cruise. A combination of laugh-out-loud commentary, amazing sights, and high speeds, both blasts will show you the sights along the Thames and are sure to leave you exhilarated.

With the invigorating 20-minute Tower RIB Blast option, get a quick fix of speed and sights. On board, enjoy a unique guided commentary on celebrated London landmarks. As you leave Tower Pier, see The HMS Belfast, the Shard, City Hall, Tower of London. Then, under Tower Bridge, your skilled skipper will blast the turbo for serious high-speed thrills and music, before turning at full throttle back toward tower bridge. The trip concludes back at Tower Pier. Photos taken on board can be purchased upon your return to the pier. 

The 40-minute Ultimate Tower RIB Blast is an enthralling 40-minute round-trip from Tower Pier. Make sure to hold on tight as the full power of the mighty twin turbo 740hp engine is unleash. Head under the iconic Tower Bridge, past Canary Wharf, and toward the dome of the O2 Arena. Then it’s full on action--take twisty turns, listen to awesome tunes, and race with high power all the way back to Tower Bridge. This option features more thrills and 'hold-on-tight' moments than the shorter cruises.

Tours end 20 or 40 minutes after departure depending on trip purchased.
