Full description
Be greeted by a staff member and receive a full safety briefing. Collect your safety equipment including mandatory lifejackets. Set sail with a specially created soundtrack that takes you through the ages from the modern day to the 1950s.

From Sinatra to Sia, experience the hippest hits and the hardest turns. For that reason, this trip is for those daring enough to experience what can truly be achieved on a speedboat. Thanks to the custom built 630 horsepower twin four-stroke engines and your highly experienced skipper team, you will get there fast. 

Cruise over the water with speed and style whilst taking in the most popular sights of London. Your guide will entertain you at Greenwich and the Thames Barrier. Along the way, you will see an array of iconic London landmarks so don’t forget your camera. 

All of this comes with a healthy portion of high-speed tricks and maneuvers that will have you screaming with delight. The speedboats really live up to their name as they carve through the water at angles never thought possible. Your expert skipper will ensure your safety, your guide will be ready with the banter, and you will supply the screams for 40 minutes that will leave you wanting to come again and again.
