Thames Barrier Experience:  

The Experience

This Thames Barrier experience is not for the faint-hearted! You will be aboard a high speed 740hp RIB for a full 75 minutes of high speed thrills, guided commentary and a chance like no other to see so much of London by river. It is the ultimate option for all lovers of sightseeing. And for all those who love travelling at high speeds, there's double the amount of high speed on this route.

Once you've witnessed all that the Canary Wharf has to offer you'll need to hold on tight on board this extreme London speedboat as you round the Isle of Docks with even more gusto, checking out the ever changing river side, the old industries clinging on as the property developers arrive. Then the famous O2, originally the Millennium Dome, under the Cable Car, past the Greenwich Yacht Club and onto the amazing Thames Barrier (described as the 8th wonder of the world!) we pass through the gates slowly allowing you to take in the full glory before turning you round and giving more G-Force on the return.  When you arrive back at Tower Bridge you will cruise back throigh the centre of London with more music and a chance for everyone to relax and enjoy the ride!
