If there is one thing we at Thames Rockets know how to do, it’s throw a party. Having spent 10 years operating the speediest of speedboat trips we often think we must have seen everything, until along comes another incredible occasion requiring our attention… and we love it.
Our Rockets have been called upon to add that special speedy something to engagements, birthday parties, examination results, honeymoons, retirements, christenings… we really have done it all!
Rocket down the river under 630 horsepower engines and zoom across the most famous metropolis on earth. No milestone is too much – our skilled bookings team love nothing more than adding that special speedy addition that brings your occasion to the next level, making it the speedboat trip all others will strive to emulate!
We brought speedboats to the Thames and therefore our experience is unmatched, making the planning simple and most importantly – fun from beginning to end. With the most reliable skippers and the coolest guides ready and waiting to welcome you and your party, they relish sharing in your celebrations. We’ll bellow ‘Happy Birthday’ to you, regale those need-to-know embarrassing stories of the birthday boy or even accommodate a special playlist just for you – it is our attention to detail that will bring the personal touch to your day.
Altogether now: “Celebrate good times… come on!”
Pirates of the Thames
Climb on board for an expedition unlike all others as you and your motley crew zoom away in your own Rocket raft! Pirate Jeff is on hand (and hook!) to take this craft and crew on the hunt for sunken chests and treasures aplenty. He’ll be telling tales of London’s most notorious wrong’uns. Brave buccaneers daring to embark should arrive in style (your guide will be dressed in their favourite pirate gear!) and all mini pirates are given a goody bag worth fightin’ for!
So step up and show yourself, you poop deck dancing hairy hammock monkey!
There’s no better way to celebrate children’s birthdays in London!

007 Teenage Themed Thames
We think there is only one thing better than being on board a speedboat… becoming James Bond on a Rocket! With ultra-cool tunes pumping from the on board sound system you’ll whoosh across the wake and tease the tide in a Thames dash you’ll need to grip on tight for!
Brush down those tuxes and slap on the aftershave. It’s time to fly the nest and leave the parents behind in your very own 30 knot Rocket ride. We guarantee a ‘no chore zone’ – simply the speedy twists and turns in a rite of passage – Rocket style!
It’s time to show London just how cool you really are!
