ThamesJet Speedboat Experience

from £37 per person

Thamesjet! A full-on, adrenaline-fueled ride of your life on the only jet boat fleet on the river (well apart from police and military boats which patrol the Thames).

That's the deal. Our skippers will show you just what these fabulous jets will do so you'd better be ready for some serious waterborne action.

The Thamesrush which starts at Westminster Pier, heads down-river to a live commentary on the riverside landmarks, then as we pass beyond Tower Bridge it's full on pedal to the metal.

Be prepared to be exhilarated at the end of this Thames Jet experience, it truly is a fantastic way to see the icon sights of the incredibly historic and beautiful London city.
