Once under Tower Bridge it’s time to tighten your grip because this is no ordinary London river cruise! Feel the rocket power as you twist and turn and blast through the docklands at 35mph with classic tunes to sing along to the whole way.

2. Ultimate Thames Pirate Party (For Groups!) 

AVAST ME HEARTIES! It’s time for a piratey paddle down ye olde river Thames! 

Grab your motley crew and bound down to the London Eye on a buccaneer blast for a celebration like no other. Your ‘Pirate Captain’ (in full pirate gear!) will get you ready for your great voyage as you set sail on your very own PRIVATE red rocket vessel for an adventure you’ll never forget. Keep your eyes peeled for the all important London landmarks (and don’t forget to tick them off your very own pirate map!) - Big Ben, The London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and most importantly, the crown jewels at the Tower of London!
