The summer holidays could be about to become much cooler with news that speedboat tours could be offered on the Thames.
Jetstream Tours is hoping to bring its speed boat to the water front between August 25 and 31.
The tour aboard Twist, which comes with two Steyr engines that deliver 150 Horsepower each, would be a 20 minute blast up and down the water between the old Tilbury ferry terminal and down as far as the RNLI station.
The boat comes with a sound system and there a few tricks and surprises for those onboard.
Discussions are currently ongoing to find a suitable place for the boat, which can carry 10 people plus a crew, to berth as the new pontoon by the pier cannot be used because of its height.
The Messenger understands discussions are being held with the RNLI as their station offers suitable accommodation.
Prices are likely to be £15 per adult and £10 per child.
Jetstream Tours already has a successful business operating in Medway offering 90 minute tours from Sun Pier, Chatham, which take you as far as the Second World War forts on Hoo Island and Darnet Ness.
Before committing themselves to running the service, Gravesham’s tourist centre is trying to gauge opinion and asking those who think it is a good idea to call 01474 337600 to register interest.
