What could be better than combining comfort of a hammock and the refreshment of a day at the pool or on the lake?

Top 6 Floating Water Hammocks of 2023 for the Pool

Now you can do just that! Summer is fast approaching, and in the spirit of long, sunny days on the water, here is a comparison of a few floating water hammocks that won’t break the bank.

Best Inflatable Floating Water Hammocks

If you prefer to lie on your stomach, you’ll likely be less comfortable than if you lie on your back in this hammock, but the same can be said for standard hammocks. On the plus side, it is relatively easy to get into and out of this hammock, unlike many other types of personal flotation devices.

Floating Hammocks


The first is the Kelsyus Floating Water Hammock. It features a body of classic mesh construction, allowing your body to be submerged somewhat in the water, while the inflatable rim is designed to keep you securely afloat and the convenient pillow cradles your neck for ultimate support. Inflated, it measures 66″ x 40″. It is light to carry, hangs to dry, and folds for easy storage in its own carry case, complete with handle.

Kelsyus Spring Float Hammock Pool Lounge Chair, Light Blue
  • FLOATING POOL HAMMOCK: Features a soft mesh bed for a luxurious floating experience, suspending your body just below the water's surface to help keep you cool on hot summer days
  • INFLATABLE HEAD PILLOW: Oversized inflatable pillow supports your head so you can keep it above the water and mostly dry while the cares of everyday life drift away

Also the plus side, since it’s inflatable, it’s easily portable. The outer ring and pillow are made of nylon for easy cleaning and durability. These two pieces inflate separately, but this doesn’t take as long to do as you might assume, since the body itself is mesh. The package lists a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs., although users over 175 lbs. might experience a bit more displacement and become more submerged than is comfortable.

Reasons to Buy

  • Ideal for use on a lake or pool
  • Durable construction
  • Includes carry bag and folds flat

Outerdo Water Hammock Pool Lounger Float

The Water Hammock Pool Lounger from Outerdo is yet another terrific hammock float that’s equipped with a floatation device by the head and feet. Both floatation devices are connected by a nylon fabric that’s extremely lightweight, allowing you to enjoy a great floating experience.

The floatation devices don’t only serve the purpose of allowing the hammock to float, but they’re also there to serve as pillows so that your head remains comfortable raised. This float boasts an incredible weight capacity of up to 250 pounds, making it great for both children and adults.

Reasons to Buy

  • An impressive weight capacity
  • Boasts a compact construction
  • Allows for great submergence

SwimWays Original Spring Float Swim Hammock

This large multi-use floating hammock measures at 69 x 35 x 5.5 inches and can support up to 250 pounds, making it an ideal pick for people of ages 15 and older. It can be folded into a very compact size for storage. It also features patented inner springs for optimal durability.

Kelsyus Inflatable Chaise Lounger Pool Float

If you’re looking for a lounger that allows you to put your feet on a footrest or dangle them in the water, the Chase Lounger from Kelsyus is a great option to check out. Thanks to the use of vinyl material, this float is going to last you for a long time. It also helps takes the strain off your body.

Kelsyus Spring Float Pool Lounger Chair, Light Blue
  • FLOATING POOL CHAIR: Features a soft mesh seat for a luxurious floating experience, suspending your body just below the water's surface to help keep you cool on hot summer days, and the ottoman lets you dip your feet in the water
  • INFLATABLE BACKREST: Fabric-covered backrest keeps you upright while the cares of everyday life drift away, and the cupholder allows you to bring your favorite drink on the water so you can sip and float

Another comparable model of floating hammock is the Premium Water Hammock Pool Float, by Swimline. Unlike the Kelsyus model, this one does not have a mesh body. It features durable nylon construction and ergonomically designed inflatable foot and head rests. It, too, is light to carry and easy to store.

It is easy to inflate as long as the inflatable inserts are placed into the unit first. Like the Kelsyus hammock, this one is not designed for use lying on your stomach. The measurements may not be quite what the package states, and air valves don’t always stay closed once the unit is inflated.

Reasons to Buy

  • Super durable and highly comfortable
  • Can be inflated and deflated with ease
  • Features a cup holder for convenience
  • Comes with a carry bag and tether clip
