Animal-themed pool floats are amazing and ~obviously~ the hottest summer accessory in the game, right? Here's a good ol' chronological history of animal pool floats to refresh your memory: First, we had the celeb-adored swan pool floats (thank you @Taylor Swift for starting this trend). After that came the many varieties of unicorn floats. Then, came the adorable sausage dog one.
But now, just in time for the hottest months of 2018, we're all being blessed with the shark mouth pool float, where you can hang loose right in the inflatable shark's mouth. How badass, if I do say so myself.
Live out your inner Jaws fantasy and start marathonning some Shark Week shows and get psyched to float away your worries with your new BFF (yes, I'm talking about the pool float, and yes, I stand by it).
If you're looking for more adventure and to make your shark pool float dreams come true IRL, you're in luck. In honor of Shark Week's 30th birthday, Discovery Channel and Princess Cruises are teaming up to bring adventurers and shark fanatics experiences of a lifetime. Shark-themed cruise vacations start at just $549 for seven days of pure shark fun and adventure. From shark-themed cocktails to tattoos to even shark tooth jewelry (circa early 2000s — I'm cringing just thinking about this), your inner shark will come alive and all of your wildest oceanic dreams will come true.
If you're a daredevil at heart, some packages even offer up-close-and-personal encounters with the sharks, so get suited up, ASAP. If you're feeling less than brave, though, this pool float is still probably your best bet.
Even if you're not a shark fan but love fun pool floats and animals (because who doesn't), you can still have some fun this summer with some other perfectly-Instagrammable, animal-themed floats. Get your swimsuit on and get snappin' away some pics:
