Enjoy the Day in a Cabana Islander

Updated on January 24, 2014

Floating Cabana - have a lazy party on the water!

Imagine the fun you'll have spending time floating on the water with a few of your friends, or just your sweetheart. A cabana islander seats up to six people and offers shade from the often harsh sun while still letting you feel the breeze. Plus, it also has a floating cooler for your drinks!

A year or two ago, I visited a friend who had a little cabin on a lake in upstate New York. He had one of these floating party centers and we spend half the day with a couple friends floating and enjoying the lake (and the floating cooler full of goodness).

It was so much nicer than sitting idly on the shore just looking at the water, and far cheaper than having a boat (plus, we were close to the shore and the water was shallow there). With this inflatable, we felt like we were doing something (even if it was just laying back).

This is the ultimate inflatable! The Cabana Islander seats six people. It is the perfect floating hangout spot on the water!

This is a really well constructed item, made of a heavy-gauge PVC (so it doesn't tear). It has a wind-resistant nylon cabana top that can be removed if you'd rather bask in the sun's rays.

In the center of the float, there is a porthole so you can sit in it and put your legs in the water, or someone who wants to be in the water can still be a part of the conversation (with just their head above water).

Getting onto the float is easy with the boarding platform (so you don't have to be concerned that it will tip when Big Tony tries to beach his big belly onto it.

And to top it off, it's comes with a detached floating cooler that you can tether to the Cabana Islander. (That's why Big Tony is there anyway, right?)


A Floating Tent

It is very hard to get kids to stay under some cover when they are in the pool or at the beach. A floating tent like this one is a fun place that they will want to hang out, and by doing so, they will minimize some of the exposure to the sun.

The same concept in a kids version:

Poolmaster Winnemucca Pup Tent

The Poolmaster- Winnemucca pup tent allows for hours of make-believe fun indoors and out. It instantly provides a convenient place to play or relax in pools, on sandy beaches, or in backyards.


Inflatable Floating Islands

This is a great little island, but lacks the shade that some other provide. Of course, if sunbathing is your plan, this might be perfect for you. Wouldn't this be great for the Moms to hang out in while the kids swim?

When you're done lounging...

After a while of lounging in your cabana islander, and you want to get active in the water, this is the water toy your group will love. This toy can barely be called a toy. It's a massive 8-foot climbing, rocking, spinning, floating globe of fun.
