Break the Barrier has been revamped for 2017, securing its place on the river as the #1 ‘all speed’ London experience yet again.

Take to the water 21st century style as you board your own cutting edge high speed Rocket in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge. Thames Rockets have always been about innovative, up-to-date and leading experiences, with the Break the Barrier speed boat tour being no exception.

Travel through time with tunes taking you from the modern day back to the 1960’s. There’s something for everyone as you strap yourselves in for a ‘rocket ride’ down memory lane. Settle in and hold on tight for 40 minutes of nothing but twists and turns, of rocks and rolls through the docklands, past maritime Greenwich, round the legendary O2 arena and beyond to the mighty Thames Barrier and back.

This trip is all about the ride! We’ll push our Rockets to the limit and launch you laughing into the distance, with a medley of the last 6 decades of hits all blended with that little bit of rocket magic that has made us #1 on TripAdvisor for 4 years running. You’ll be singing along as you bounce across the wake, and dancing like a disco queen as we take you on a super special speedy spin.

From Sinatra to Sia you can experience the hippest hits and the hardest turns. Break the Barrier is the trip for those daring enough to experience what can truly be achieved on a Thames Rocket speedboat. No holds barred, no stone unturned, no wake knowingly missed. Thanks to our custom built 630hp twin four stroke engines (and with a little help from our highly experienced skipper team) we’ll take you there… fast!

As ever our comedian guides are on hand ready to keep the banter flowing. They love nothing more than to settle you in and watch you scream with joy as you treat your loved ones (and yourself!) to the #1 activity in London.

It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s a world first.

It’s all new and it’s revved up for 2017.

It’s Break the Barrier.

It’s ready? Are you?
