Speedboats on The Thames

Home > London > Fun Things To Do
Published January 15th 2010
Imagine yourself as James Bond, cruising along the water on a mission to defeat all evil. Well, dreams and reality become one when you visit London's River Thames.

The Ultimate James Bond Adventure is just one of a number speedboat journeys you could enjoy while in the city. Speeding along to the sound of Bond classic music themes, this boat travels to the Canary Wharf and back in just 50 minutes.

The historical river offers something for everyone with its range of speedboat tours. If you're looking for something for all the family, climb aboard Captain Kidd's Canary Wharf Voyage, a laughter-a-minute comedian led tour.

London RIB Voyages conduct both those themed adventures that can be booked online or by calling 0207 928 8933. London RIB Voyages warn that their trips are not for expectant mothers during any stage of pregnancy or anyone with a historical or current back condition including undiagnosed complaints.

Or you could view the Thames Barrier, Westminister and Greenwich in under 90 minutes with Flying Fish Tours. Like London RIB Voyages, the company offers online booking or you can call 08449 91 50 50.

Their trips are not recommended for pregnant women or people with a pre existing medical condition such as a back problem.

The trips are ideal for a weekend when you fancy something a little bit different and extravagant. If you're celebrating, why not book a chartered speedboat through Livett's Launches who offer speedboats for all occasions.

They recommend that both young babies and people who are not physicaly able to climb in and out of the boat do not travel with them. Call 020 7378 1211 to book this trip.

Prices vary depending on the type of trip and so check the websites listed here first. Some tours must also be booked in advance. There are also different departure points from trip to trip so be sure to check these out too.
