This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in February of 2019. When those hot summer days begin, there's nothing like a dip in the pool, lake, river or ocean to cool off. These fun and creative floats can make a great day even better by providing enough support to let you relax. But note that these are not safety devices, and you should.never leave kids (or poor adult swimmers) unsupervised when in the water on one of these, even in the shallows. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best swim float on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 11, 2019:

We know that, for some people, pool parties are a time to show off everything from that hard-earned beach body to the pool accessories, so we included the flashy Joyin Peacock and GoFloats Unicorn. We also realize that the main purpose of using a float, for many people, is to separate themselves from the crowds and to actually stay dry while on the water, which is why we added the massive Intex Canopy Island.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
