Grab your nearest and dearest and whisk them off their feet to the London Eye Pier. Our super sexy red fleet of speedboats are waiting to give you the butterflies, launching you into a whirlwind London date like no other.

Forget roses and dinner. Our special Valentine’s music medley is all you need to set the mood as you waltz and wail down London’s famous river Thames. Hold each other close as you marvel at London’s most romantic 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.

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. All the romantic classics will have you feeling on cloud nine so much that you won’t even care about your hair!

Once back at Tower Bridge, it's time to settle in, snuggle up and enjoy a special drink from our official partner, 6 O'Clock Gin, and some tasty treats as you cruise through the beautiful city of London. 

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!
