Your experience begins at Westminster Pier which is nestled alongside Westminster Bridge and two minutes walk from Big Ben. At the speed we will be travelling you'll appreciate the waterproof clothing we provide for your high speed tour of the Thames! Slow it won't be...
There may be other fast boats on the Thames, but only Blue Thunder and Blue Lightning are jetboats. This means the military grade boats are more maneuverable (yes built to the same specification as those used by the military and police). The experienced skippers really know how to put them through their paces to give you the aquabatic ride of your life!
To start, this trip will take you past some of London's most iconic sights. The London Eye is opposite our starting point so you'll get a great view as we pass by on the way to the fast zone. In fact you need to stay alert because the sights really do come thick and fast on this stretch of the river. Then pass under ten of the Capital's great bridges including the most modern, the Millennium Bridge, as well as the world renowned Tower Bridge. Then as you head towards Canary Wharf hang on tight because the high speed action starts here...
