Break The Barrier Thames Rockets Experience - The number 1 all speed London Experience

London Rib Experience
#1 on TripAdvisor for 4 years running

It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s a world first. Break the Barrier launched in the summer of 2013 and immediately changed the way we power-boat on the Thames. Operating exclusively in the ‘High Speed Zone’ this is the speed experience which is just that – ALL SPEED! It is all revved up for 2017!

Boarding at St Katharine’s Pier in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge, you set sail to a rousing “Best of British” soundtrack from the modern day back to the 1960's.

Before you know it, we let rip! Pushing speeds of up to 30 knots (35mph!) the 12 metre long aero-dynamically designed fiberglass ‘Thames Rocket’ will twist and turn its way east flashing past Canary Wharf, the Cutty Sark, Greenwich & The O2 arena. There’s a chance to catch your breath as the vessel cruises through the marvel that is the Thames Barrier, before ‘Pulling G’ and firing up the 630hp twin four stroke engines to blast you home.

There is plenty more music and memories along the way and with an expert Skipper and award winning guide on hand to keep you entertained, this is a jam packed 40 minutes that’ll leave you wanting to turn round and do it all again!

We were a party of 5, 2 adults and 3 children. This was a fabulous experience and worth every penny. What a great way to see London. The guide was very informative and the driver very fast!! The kids absolutely loved it and we took loads of photos. We felt totally safe throughout. Would definitely recommend.

We had a fabulous journey to the Barrier. It was very cold but we were prepared and it was well worth braving it. We were greeted with smiling faces by the crew who enhanced our experience. Don't think about it, just do it - you won't be disappointed. Thank you to Ron and Rich we loved it :)

Fantastic!

This has to be one of the best tourist attractions in London. We had a fantastic time, and it was awesome. High speed, very professional staff and an exhilarating experience. Highly recommended!

Lives up to its name

A truly enjoyable experience - seeing London from a totally different angle!! Tour guides were highly amusing throughout and made a ten years old's birthday one to remember

Great Fun

Booked this for my daughter's birthday as part of a fun packed day. This trip was so enjoyable and such fun. James was just lovely and the information along the way was a real insight. Thank you guys

The alternative and definitely better way to see the sights from the River Thames!
Simon, 29/07/2017 (Young Adults)
Fantastic experience for those who want to feel like James Bond! You get to see all the sights east of Tower Bridge in only 40 minutes (this is the section where the speedboat can go the fastest because there is a speed limit from the London Eye to Tower Bridge). Perfect for tourists and locals and would happily do again!!
