Instagram baddies and families with small children may not have a lot in common, but both groups know how to appreciate a gigantic pool float. Whether you’re on a family vacation to the lake or posing for feed photos in a crystal clear pool with your friends, inflatable rafts are the key to ultimate water-based relaxation and aesthetic.
From kitschy cartoon-like floats to sleek lounges fit for a tropical paradise, there’s an extra-large inflatable raft made for you and everyone you know. Yes, we’re even talking about six-seater massive air-filled leisure rafts.
Some of these gigantic inflatable products are serious when it comes to aesthetics, with some styles including blow-up unicorns and crown-shaped rafts, seemingly created for show-stopping photos. Others look to bring luxury to your summertime swim, creating classically-designed rafts or “inflatable islands” with canopies, coolers and lounge chairs for relaxation.
While single-person floats may be more practical for most pools, giant floats are likely to be worth the splurge for families or friend groups often traveling to still bodies of water, like calm summer lakes or incredibly large in-ground pools.
These gigantic six-seater floats often cost upwards of $150, making them an investment purchase ideal for those spending more than just one weekend at a lake house. But if you decide the purchase is worth it, it is pretty cool to bring a giant flamingo to a serene lake to shake things up a bit.
If you’re in the market for an inflatable island to lounge on, check out these multi-person blow-up rafts that will make summertime extra fine.
