“Sheer exhilaration”….. Nothing comes close to the excitement and immediacy of a RIB. Running 8 matched boats powered by 225HP engines at speeds of up to 50mph through central London is simply an utterly stunning ‘traffic stopping’ experience.

RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are usually used by the Special Forces of the World and other Police Agencies.. they are a formidable sight on The Thames. These boats are designed to be used in extreme conditions and therefore are extremely robust, stable and safe! The event is closely coordinated with the Port of London Authority and the River Police, marshaled by Thames Watermen and we always operate with both a safety boat and a paramedic.

The Thames Power Blast is a fantastic corporate event, guaranteed to impress staff and clients alike as they power down the Thames, taking in the world famous sights of London from an entirely new perspective. The event lasts approximately 1-2 hours and is therefore ideal to run either before or after a meeting, presentation or product launch. Alternatively why not combine the Thames Power Blast with our Cab Clue Trail and lunch in the London Eye to make a ‘Land, Sea and Air’ event in central London. This event would run over the course of a day and is a great team building day out in London.

“Being on the water was great fun and the guys steering it were friendly, funny and full of great facts which kept everyone entertained. Would definitely recommend.”Phillipa Proctor

socially distanced team building activitiesKEEPING EACH OTHER SAFE

We understand it has been difficult to plan ahead in recent times. This is why we are providing you with a COVID guarantee on all of our team building activities. This means that if you or any of the group are unable to attend due to local or national restrictions we will help you rearrange the activity to a suitable date free of charge. However, we can now look ahead to a time where teams can come back together at a safe distance by following strict Covid regulations. At Team Tactics we love bringing teams together albeit virtually over the last few months. If you are planning the team reunion or are looking to bring your team back to your offices, we are here to provide safe socially distanced team building activities.


Thames Power Blast – 1-2 hours

Gather at either Embankment or London Eye Pier or any Central London Pier or by arrangement. After a comprehensive safety briefing, our fully qualified skippers will take you down to the boarding area to ‘kit up’ with oilskins and life jackets. Head into the Thames in tight Vic ‘V’ formation and prepare to power up speed of 30 knots. You will enjoy the slick formation changes as we go under bridges and between narrow gaps.

The route will take us past all the major London landmarks from the Dome to the MI5 building including high speed runs past Parliament, the London Eye, under the Millennium Bridge, under Tower Bridge etc. Once into the open River by Canary Wharf, we run at full throttle and demonstrate why Ribs are so much fun before turning and retracing our steps to the boarding point.

Package Includes

  • Ideally 12 persons per RIB
  • Oilskins per person
  • Qualified skipper
  • 1-2 hours of sheer exhilaration in Central London

Land Sea & Air Central London – Full day event

Combine the Thames Power Blast with our famous Cab Clue Trail and an optional  light lunch and champagne aboard The London Eye and you have experienced an amazing day of Land Sea and Air events. Half of the group will spend 2 hours on the RIBS whilst the other half competes in our Cab Clue Trail. Having had lunch aboard the London Eye, swap over and you have had one of the best corporate days available in London.

Package Includes

  • Cab Clue Trail
  • Optional Light lunch and champagne served on the London Eye
  • Team Tactics full event management

James Bond – Shaken Not Stirred

We’ve developed this special trip to take you to many of the landmarks featured in the Bond movies – but this isn’t an undercover operation – be prepared for a thrilling ride in true Bond fashion. Guests will have their Bond knowledge put to the test with an intriguing quiz.

As our sleek RIB snakes its way along the River Thames and through the very heart of London, past many of the locations featured in the famous books and films (MI5 and MI6), our debonair skipper will open up the engines and speed off at high speed towards the O2 as it emulates the opening sequence of the classic Bond film “The World Is Not Enough”.

Package Includes

  • High-powered speed boat ride
  • Trained guides
  • James Bond Quiz
  • High-speed fun pursuit
  • Qualified skipper
  • Approximately 1 1/2 hours

We had the most fantastic time on Thursday! I’ve been organising summer and Christmas parties for this company for years and the feedback for the RIB experience was the best ever.

Thank you so much to you and your team for helping make our day out such a success.

The Land, Sea & Air event was perfect for our full day staff away day in central London. Each element provided the team with plenty of laughter and excitement with the added luxury of having their own private pod on the London Eye with excellent views.

The Thames Blast was exhilarating and i have received nothing but positive feedback. A few members of the team have agreed that it has been the best team away day since joining the company but it will be hard to beat it next year!

It was reassuring to have Melissa on hand throughout the day for any queries we had and to make the event come together nicely.

Thanks again Team Tactics for our perfect team away day!

The team absolutely LOVED the events on Friday! They thought that the Treasure Hunt was not only great fun, but also a fantastic teambuilding opportunity (especially as we mixed up the teams to include combinations who don’t usually work together). The rib ride went down a storm and was a fantastic release of adrenalin after all the running around and the venue for the bbq was superb. The food (and service) was great – and there was loads more than we could ever have eaten!

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making this event a success and for bearing with us on the ever changing numbers in the lead up to the event – this is unfortunately the case in relation to the nature of the work we do.

It worked well for us, we wanted an exciting London based activity that was not time consuming and that suited a wide age range group. This worked well.

The RIB Racing proved to be one of our most popular staff events to date. Brilliantly organised by Team Tactics the entire process was seamless and so enjoyable. Being on the water was great fun and the guys steering it were friendly, funny and full of great facts which kept everyone entertained. Would definitely recommend. Many thanks Team Tactics!

Thank you SO much for organising the RIB for us on Monday – it was a tremendous success and from what I can gather, Freddie Flintoff has talked about it in every one of his interviews! I’m so glad I thought of you when GC asked me how we were going to get them to us from Battersea! I really appreciate that you managed to fix it all at such short notice and also that you contacted me over the weekend with all the details. Thank you and speak to you very soon.

Thames Power blast was a brilliant event. Definitely worth a go, as long as the weathers good! Team Tactics arranged this as part of a customer event in London and it went down really well. Having team tactics people at the event to organise over 50 guests was a real plus point and meant we could get on with enjoying the day.
