It’s time for our summer boat party and this year we’ve pulled out all the stops to make this our busiest event ever. Welcome to the legendary ROCK THE BOAT party!

The locks and keys are ready, the speed dating sessions are set and we’ve chosen our favourite summer tunes. All we need is you and all you need is your ticket to this boat party. Prepare to meet your match at Rock The Boat 2015!

You’ll mingle, flirt and party with 250 people as we cruise down the Thames for this three hour afternoon party cruise. Starting at Temple Pier we’ll head up to Westminster before cruising down as far as The O2 and back.

This is one of the most fun ways to see London and it’s rather romantic too!

We’ve hired London’s best party boat - The Golden Sunrise. A very large vessel with a huge sun deck, the perfect place for soaking up the rays and enjoying a cool drink.

Our tried and tested lock and key icebreaker and speed dating sessions mean you’ll meet loads of people effortlessly. Because 250 people are attending (50:50 male/female guaranteed) there’s a high chance you’ll hit it off with a few people on board.

In fact, you'll meet so many people you're almost guaranteed to click with someone.

This is going to be a party to remember and we expect it to sell out fast. Book now and we’ll see you on Saturday August 1st!

Breaking the ice - lock and key

Nothing gets people mingling like lock and key! Girls get padlocks and guys get keys and the aim is to find a matching pair. Try your key with as many locks as possible (or vice versa) and you're bound to find a match. This breaks the ice brilliantly you’ll meet loads of people as you go. When you find a matching set, both you and your 'match' head to our desk where you'll enter our prize draw to win some great prizes. The more people you meet the more chance you have of winning a prize and of course meeting someone you like too.

Speed dating

This event also features several speed dating sessions which will take place throughout the cruise. Simply sign up free on the day if you'd like to take part.

Matching and messaging

You're bound to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed, but it's not always so easy to ask for numbers. No problem. Using our clever little mobile app, Mixeo you’ll be able to view everyone you met at the event and select them as either a yes, friend or a no.  
Mixeo will let you know when you get a mutual match and you’ll be able to get in touch with anyone you hit it off with via the built in messenger. No other company has this and it really sets our event apart.
