Festive fun on the new ThamesJet

Father Christmas sped into London on a thrilling ride aboard City Cruises’ new ThamesJet – Quest.

Father Christmas sped into London on a thrilling ride aboard City Cruises’ new ThamesJet – Quest. With speeds reaching an impressive 40 knots, Santa knows the only way to bring Christmas to the capital is by high-speed jet.

Quest is the third addition to the ThamesJet fleet and offers an even more exhilarating ride, giving an adrenaline rush like no other to those brave enough to step on-board.


Measuring 12m in length and with a weight of just 4,250kg, the jet soars along the River Thames reaching extraordinary speeds of 40 knots. As well as the ability to race along the Thames, Quest is also designed with super comfortable seating, allowing passengers to view the city of London from the best seat in the house. The best part? Santa approves.

City Cruises has a number of fun festive activities taking place throughout the Christmas period, including the Christmas Party Dinner cruise, a Christmas Day sightseeing cruise, the opportunity to meet Santa on the Sail with Santa cruise (operating both in London and Poole) and a fabulous New Year’s Eve cruise on-board the R.S. Hispaniola.
