Float-Eh is a company creates Canadian themed inflatables. This loon pays homage to just that. At about 7×6 ft it can comfortably fit one adult but has enough space to squeeze in two. According to the designer, it’s 30-40% stronger than your average float and they back it up with a 3-year warranty. It’s currently listed for $79.99 with a 4.5 star review.

The Fishing Tube

Its padded seat features a high adjustable backrest for total comfort, and a built-in cup holder will keep a cold drink within arms reach. Find the heavy duty tube for $300 on Amazon.

Canadian Moose

Own your own boat with this 2-person inflatable raft. The Intex Explorer is a perfect option for those looking to drift or row down a calm lake. There is even a place for oars, which are sold separately. While designed for two, the fine print states its maximum capacity is 210 pounds – something to keep in mind. Check out the listing with a 4.5 start average here.

River Run Inner Tube

Your classic River-run inner tube is a perfect way to float in any lake or river, with heavy duty handles and rope ties to latch onto a boat. The best part of this is the backrest and cupholders for added comfort on water. Find it on Amazon for $92 an average 4.5 star review.

2-Person River Run Sport Lounge

If tubing in pairs is more your thing, this inflatable tube doubles up on the River Run above and results in a sporty lounge for two. The best part? It includes a built-in cooler with lid, making it perfect to float with a friend. The Amazon best seller is currently listed for $146.


For The Avocado Lover

If you love guacamole or Avo-toast as most Vancouverites do, you will likely love floating in this giant avocado. The inflatable comes with a ball, which is the pit of course. The coolest part of this product is that the inner part becomes a smaller float for kids, so there’s actually 3 inflatable parts in total. It also comes with its own carrying case. That said, it’s designed for pools and not recommended for lakes or rivers. Find it on Amazon for $62.
