Pool floats for lounging on the water
There’s no need to get wet if you don’t want to.
There are few things better on a hot day than a dip in a pool, lake, river, or sea. When you’re ready to take a break, drifting on a pool float is the best of both worlds. Just don’t forget to re-apply your sunscreen.
We’ve picked some of our favorite pool floats in several styles: hammock, lounger, chair, and ride-on.

A dash of magic. Amazon
Be the life of the party with a giant unicorn pool float. It’s a great choice for any swimmer—the 45-inch diameter, 3-foot-tall float can support up to 500 pounds. The durable UV treated vinyl will keep your steed looking as noble as the first day he sets sail.
This one might make you hungry. Amazon
A watermelon slice and a swimming pool have one thing in common: they both keep you nice and cool. This melon ride-on float is great for drifting along a breeze, or riding along a lazy river. Eight slices make a giant watermelon ring—and with ties on the side to attach to one another, it’s easy to make this vision a reality.
Stay cool all the time. Amazon
For the days when you want to lounge with most of your body submerged, this hammock style pool float is the best pick. The Monterey Hammock can also be used as a pool chair, saddle, or drifter—depending on how you position the floaters.
