Safety

Our Thames speedboats are designed for maximum excitement and customer comfort with safety the priority at all times. Once on board our guide will explain the important dos and don’ts with an informative safety briefing before your adventure begins.

Our highly qualified commercial skippers are all Thames Watermen: each with a minimum five years experience. They all know the river like the back of their hand and work with knowledgeable, entertaining guides on all our trips to ensure both your safety and enjoyment.

Our Thames RIB boats are certified by the Port of London Authority and have onboard the latest safety equipment including global plotting system and VHF radios to ensure instant communication with other vessels and the London Coastguard.

Our boarding platform ensures that embarkation and disembarkation is as safe as possible. Our skippers and guides are always at hand to assist if required during the boarding process.

Life Jackets:

All passengers will be provided with fully self inflating life jackets.
Our staff will fit all passengers with snug automatic life jackets. They inflate on contact with water and also feature a manual inflation toggle. They are one size fits all and fully adjustable for your comfort. All our lifejackets comply with strict safety regulations and are serviced annually.   

Wet Weather Clothing:

Worried about feeling the mid-winter chills? Don’t be! In order to ensure your adventure won’t be beaten by the elements we can provide adequate clothing to ensure that you have a comfortable trip. It’s always a few degrees cooler out on the River Thames and during the winter months we recommend you wear the winter warm waterproof jackets that we provide. We have large sizes for you to wear over your own clothes to fit all ages and sizes.

On all our adventures your safety and comfort is our priority!

What People Say

Ahoy there Rob and Tony!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for a fab trip and for the photos for Jasmine’s birthday. It is definitely the most fun I’ve had on the water! Oh, and the history stuff’s not bad either! Thank you both for being so hospitable. We will certainly be recommending you and to bring others with us for a second trip next summer. See you again soon.
John and Emily, Coventry, July 2011

We all loved the speed up at Canary Wharf but the kids really loved all the stuff about the history of pirates and Captain Kidd – Execution Dock gave us all the shivers.
With very best wishes
Frank and Linda Williams. August 2011
