Break the Barrier has secured its place undeniably on the river as the ultimate ‘all speed’ Thames river cruise.

Our all speed Thames river cruise experience…

Travel through time with tunes ranging 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 Thames river cruise is certainly all about the ride. All with a medley of the last 6 decades of hits blended with that little bit of rocket magic that has made us #1 on TripAdvisor for 7 years running. You’ll be singing along as you bounce across the wake. You’ll be 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. For that reason Break the Barrier is the trip for those daring enough to experience what can truly be achieved on a Thames Rocket speedboat. Thanks to our custom built 880hp 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. Treat your loved ones (and yourself!) to the #1 activity in London.

Fast, it’s furious, it’s a world first.
