Well, it’s close to that time of year again, folks. You know what I’m talking about! We’re starting to taste and smell the sweetness of summer. For many people, the thought of summer brings heavenly dreams about sipping an ice cold drink by the pool or unleashing their boat to take a spin out on the lake or ocean. If you’re one of those boaters, it’s possible that you have a boat dock, too. With a reliable boat dock comes innumerable opportunities for fun, like climbing toys, trampolines, and much more! Did you know that boat dock water slides are a huge blast? With all of boat dock options, you’ll never want summer to end.
Besides the typical water guns and balloons, water toys can range anywhere from a water slide to a floating water mat. Speaking of a floating water mat, it’s the perfect place for kids to play on or an opportune spot for the adults to squeeze in a quick nap under the sun. You won’t even need to worry about inflating or deflating this foam mat; simply just roll it out for some quick fun. This high-quality water toy resists tearing, has superior buoyancy, and lays fairly flat on the water, making it ideal for a wide variety of uses. You don’t even have to worry about floating away since the mat ties directly to the dock.
Are you looking for even more excitement? Check out an inflatable water slide. These exciting water toys are a great way for kids to get more familiar with being in and going under the water. Boat dock water slides can be inflatable or not, but either way they will your dock into a haven of summer fun. These safe slides will attach directly to your dock. An inflatable slide will ensure safe footing and handles to hold onto. The inflatable slides blow up in just minutes and only require deflating and rolling up for easy storage. A few important points to remember are that dock slides require a minimum dock height (depending on the desired slide) and a minimum water depth to prevent injury.
Water trampolines are just as much fun as the name implies. A water trampoline lets you jump in a way that’s unlike any kind of jumping you’ve done before. Jump, turn, and twist to flip your world upside down (literally). Take your biggest jump and before you know it, you’ll be propelling yourself into the water! No need to worry about visiting the nearest water park for some excitement; it will be at your fingertips. Like the water mats and water slides, this nifty water toy can be easily stored when not being used and attached conveniently to your existing boat dock.
Take your bouncing to the next level with what we call the Bongo. The Bongo can be used as a bouncing platform for people of all ages. Before you know it, you’ll be showing off perfected back flips to the rest of the lakegoers. As an added bonus, these water toys can be used as a raft when not being used as a kid-launching water toy. You don’t have to worry about springs and bars because the Bongo is lightweight, easy to inflate, and simple to roll up. When not being used, it can be stored in the trunk of your car or the back of your boat; you can take the fun with you wherever you go!
Have you ever thought of being able to climb while in the water? Now you can! You may have heard these unique inventions dubbed as “icebergs,” but they are essentially a mini, 3D climbing wall in the water. They look like an iceberg and your kids can climb on any of the four sides to reach the top. These can also be attached to your dock so the kids can’t stray too far.
With any of these water toys, your dock will be the hit of the lake. All of these water toys, and others, are safe for both you and your kids to have some fun. Just make sure everyone can swim before stepping foot off of the dock. Don’t wait until summer to turn up the heat. Any of these would make a fantastic holiday or birthday (or several birthdays’) gift for the kids. Even better, with your boat and water toys, you’ll have plenty of options for entertainment on those scorching hot days. No matter what water toy or amenities you choose to add to your dock, you’ll be sure to create a lifetime of new memories!
