We are reopening on Monday 12th April. With safety as our primary concern we have put in a number of measures to protect our staff and passengers from infection. You can be confident that when we welcome you onboard one of our vessels we will do all we can to keep you safe. This will include the provision of sanitiser and face masks if required; wiping down all appropriate surfaces on the vessel between trips and maintaining a safe distance. If you book a trip with us you can also be sure that, should we be unable to operate your trip or you need to cancel (giving 24 hours notice), we will give you a full refund. If you have any safety concerns please feel free to give us a call.
Taking to the water in a high speed craft can be a hazardous activity. Thames Tigers take the safety of our customers, staff and others very seriously.
Like all operators on the Thames, our boats are very well maintained and equipped with all necessary safety equipment. The Marine Coastguard Agency(MCA) and Port of London Authority(PLA) have inspected and certified our vessels and regularly inspect them to ensure they meet the highest safety standards.
Our crew are very well trained and experienced; they regularly practice dealing with emergencies, so that they’ll be ready should the unexpected happen.
Before you board you’ll be given an automatic inflating lifejacket and shown how to use it.
THAMES TIGERS ARE DIFFERENT: Travelling at speed on the water exposes passengers to the very real risk of injury through shock and vibration. Shock impacts travel through the seat and can injure a passenger’s spine when the vessel hits a wave. To ensure our passengers are protected from such impacts Thames Tigers have invested in industry leading Ullman suspension seating.
These seats eliminate such shocks and ensure you can enjoy the experience in safety and comfort.
Thames Tigers are the only RIB operator on the River Thames to offer such protection on High Speed sightseeing vessels.
