See London from the River Thames and get a different perspective
Thames Boat Tour
We are here to tailor a Thames cruise to match your requirements. We can make suggestions based on your itinerary and personal preferences.
Make your tour of London special by including a private transfer to Greenwich or full two hours sightseeing tour of London with that river perspective. We create private evening dinner cruises for that special occasion. Get the adrenaline pumping with a personal high-speed jet boat experience. There are many vessels and options to choose.
Please see our preferred selection of vessels below.
Elegance to Excitement
Limousine Thames Boat (6 passengers)
Enjoy sheer elegance and style on the River Thames. The limousine Thames Boat is the first Venetian vessel to be licensed by the Port of London. The Limousine Thames Boat brings Italian style and British flair with the Union Flag hull. Enjoy a minibar, air-conditioning and sound system. The vessel is licenced to carry six passengers and travels at a maximum speed of 30 knots.
We tend to suggest this vessel for 45 min to 1-hour transfers-tours. Dusk champagne trips work well, where the boat becomes your evening transportation to a riverside restaurant.
High-Speed Rib Experience (12 passengers)
If you are going to go hurtling down the Thames at high speed, you need to make sure you are in the hands of a team of professionals. Every skipper on the Thames Rockets has a Sea Survival Certificate and are First Aid Trained; this is why we partner with the best.
We co-ordinate your private high-speed rib experience with your itinerary, making the whole day run smoothly. Enjoy a James Bond themed cruise or combine high-speed antics to transfer to our next London attraction. We are here to help you tailor your private tour of London, including a thrilling high-speed River Thames cruise.
The Thames Bourne Yacht (12 passengers)
The Thames Yacht is a luxurious vessel for up to 12 passengers and six crew. The boat is 15.5 metres (50ft) long. There is plenty of space on the deck and the saloon for cosy dining and lounging. We can arrange to have the environment set up for birthday surprises, luxury dining or cocktail party.
This boat is perfect for family groups and small parties celebrating a special occasion.
The Silver Darling (12 passengers)
Choose between an open deck or interior cabin on this 12 passenger vessel. British furniture designer Matthew Hilton beautifully designs the interior. Be surrounded by Walnut woodwork, soft lighting enhanced by Swarovski Crystal.
Enjoy a glass of chilled Champagne, beer and wine onboard while sitting on the outer deck with the breeze in your hair or cosy-up inside the cabin on fresh days. It is the perfect little charter for sightseeing and river transfers.
