We don’t mind admitting it - we get a bit soft at this time of year. Especially because we are based in one of the most romantic cities in the WORLD! 

Of course you could say I love you with flowers, or you could say it with chocolates…

…however, we’d rather say it with a 35mph speedboat special for all you dare-devil lovebirds out there! 

Grab your nearest and dearest and whisk them off their feet to the London Eye Pier for 50 minutes of adventure on our super sexy red fleet of speedboats! Fly across the Thames and feel the butterflies as we launch you into a whirlwind date like no other. 

Forget roses and dinner. Our special Valentine’s Day music medley is all you need to set the mood as you waltz and wail down London’s famous river Thames. Snuggle up to your date (or mate!) as you marvel at London’s most romantic city sights, from Big Ben to Shakespeare’s Globe, Westminster Abbey to St Paul’s Cathedral, stealing a kiss under the gorgeous Tower Bridge before we ‘dim the lights’ for the main event. 

Hold on tight and feel the rush as we propel you at 35mph across the famous docklands of London. Love is in the air as we twist, turn and roll you past Canary Wharf whilst you sing along to a classic playlist full of hits to get the heart racing! 

Once back at Tower Bridge, it’s time to settle in for a relaxing cruise back to the world famous London Eye - looking up in awe as you pass all of the beautiful sights this city has to offer. Take in the city as you tuck into a special little bag of Valentine's treats and enjoy a delicious can of Didsbury Gin - the perfect end to the perfect date.

A full 50 minutes of romantic vibes, beautiful sights, heart racing hits and special treats on board…

This is a speed date to remember! 

So grab your loved ones and surprise them this Valentines with something a little different. Oh and don't forget, we’re a hotspot for proposals too!
