rib powerboating experience review

Fancy speeding down the River Thames on a Powerboat?

This RIB powerboating experience was booked through Red Letter Days and we began our experience by making our way down to the pier where we were greeted and given life jackets. We then had a quick safety talk before boarding the boat.

RIB PowerboatNote: There are no toilets on the pier so make sure you go beforehand - the powerboating experience lasts about 50 minutes.

We boarded the red power boat and sat in rows of two, it was then time to depart. The boat can only do a certain speed whilst in the main sections of the River Thames, but once it is past the Police boat station the boat was then allowed to accelerate to top speed.

Our driver happened to be an ex-river Policeman so we knew we were in for an excellent ride. The boat goes through some amazing twists and turns at speed with the wind in your hair – whilst a classic soundtrack is playing. This includes such classics as the Baywatch theme tune, Miami Vice theme and lots more.

Powerboating GuideAfter about 20 minutes of power boating the boat turns around and it takes you leisurely down the length of the Thames. You will pass such classic landmarks as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf, with unrivalled views of Tate Modern, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London along the way. Whilst passing the landmarks the excellent on-board guide describes lots of hidden gems about the Thames itself and the building and bridges whilst more music is played.

After around 50 minutes the boat brings you back to the pier and you disembark. It's got to be said this is an excellent experience and I can thoroughly recommend it. Its great value for a 50 minute experience and it's not just about speeding along, you also get a brilliant tour of the Thames with a brilliant guide.

Don't be worried about the speed aspect of the powerboating either, it is nice and fast but never once did I feel scared or worried about the experience, it was just thrilling.

Book the RIB Powerboating experience, you can book a single ticket, or save by booking the RIB powerboating for two people from Red Letter Days.
