Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Select a start time convenient to you and then make your own way to the London Eye Pier in central London. Greet your expert guide and skipper, don a waterproof lifejacket and listen to a short safety briefing before stepping on board your modern RIB. 

Feel your excitement heighten as the boat’s engine roars into life and propels you toward iconic London landmarks like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Gaze at the sharp spire of the Shard as you reach speeds of up to 35 miles (56 km) per hour.

Listen to fascinating commentary during slower periods of sailing and glide under the monumental Tower Bridge as your skipper yanks back the throttle and accelerates to high-velocity speeds. Gasp as your skipper performs break-neck turns and wave jumps, and then catch your breath during a brief interlude at Canary Wharf. 

Enjoy a leisurely cruise back to the boat’s original departure point and capture photographs of legendary sites during the return sail.

The tour guide Mark was fantastic- knowledgeable, charismatic and funny. Ruddy the driver was awesome too, taking us at high speeds with music playing. The cruise goes at a leisurely pace for the first half, then speeds up for the second half.
