What’s a RIB? I’d usually say something smothered in hickory sauce but in this case it means a Rigid Inflatable Boat – think a rubber dinghy with a solid floor and two massive engines. It’s not the usual sort of pleasure craft or ferry you see plying the waters of the Thames in London. So when we got an offer to come along for a ride we jumped right in. Check out the video we made of our jaunt:
What you need to know:
Cost – We did the Ultimate London Adventure, which is valued at £42 or £34.95 if you book online. Children under 14 are £20.95
When to go – The tours depart regularly from the morning to late afternoon. If it’s cold do rug up! They sail in all weather and you will get wet.
How to get there – London RIB Voyages can be found at Boarding Gate One, London Eye Millennium Pier, Southbank, right beneath the London Eye. The closest tube and train station is Waterloo.
London RIB Voyages provided us with two complimentary tickets, but as always our views and work are our own.
