50 Minute Canary Wharf Experience

50 Minute Canary Wharf Experience


Our 50 Minute Canary Wharf Experience starts from Festival pier heading upstream to the Houses of Parliament “Big Ben” before turning around and heading down through the heart of London. You will see some popular tourist attractions along the way and our fully trained tour guide will point out all the major places of interest as you cruise down through Tower Bridge.   

Once you have passed beneath Tower Bridge the fun really starts, your experienced Captain will unleash the Ribs powerful twin 250 h/p Engines taking you up to speeds of over 30 knots!  Hold on tight as you speed down the River Thames towards canary wharf where you will make a rapid roller-coaster turn back up towards Tower Bridge and then onto Festival pier.

Below is a list of all the places of interest you will see on our 50 Minute Canary Wharf Experience:


*Houses of Parliament “Big Ben” *Old County Hall   *London Eye  

               *Royal Festival Hall *Cleopatra’s Needle   *Tate Modern  *St Pauls Cathedral

     *Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre *HMS Belfast  *Tower of London   *Tower Bridge  

       *St Katherine’s Dock *Execution Dock  *Mayflower   *Captain Kidd  

        *Canary Wharf


If you would like something a little shorter why not try our 25 Minute Tower Bridge Mini Dash Experience, or for a more bespoke package why not hire the RIB exclusively for up to 12 passengers. Departing from Festival pier, other pick up locations available on request please call our sales team 0207 118 118 1 to find out pier availability and any additional cost.

What People Say

Ahoy there Rob and Tony!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for a fab trip and for the photos for Jasmine’s birthday. It is definitely the most fun I’ve had on the water! Oh, and the history stuff’s not bad either! Thank you both for being so hospitable. We will certainly be recommending you and to bring others with us for a second trip next summer. See you again soon.
John and Emily, Coventry, July 2011

We all loved the speed up at Canary Wharf but the kids really loved all the stuff about the history of pirates and Captain Kidd – Execution Dock gave us all the shivers.
With very best wishes
Frank and Linda Williams. August 2011
