The Aqua Lily Pad has changed the way we enjoy our boating by giving us a 6m platform at the rear of the boat for the kids and adults to play and lay on. 


I always had an idea of how we could use it, but I couldn't have imagined all the amazing ways we actually did.


From full-day trips on the harbour filled with our kids and friends diving and playing on the Aqua Lily Pad to afternoon sunset cruises with fresh oysters and champagne for the adults, every time we ventured out, we took it with us.


We got the Aqua Lily Pad BULLFROG, and storage of it on the boat was easy on the rear deck standing up or latched to the bow rail.


Funny enough, the so-called hardest part of rolling it back up was one of the easiest with the tried and proven method of firm tuck and forearm rolls for two, easy!


Ok, so my top 5 likes for the Aqua Lilly Pad:


(1) Buoyant! Wow, this thing easily holds 4-5 adults or as many kids as you can throw at it, so it's the perfect platform extension for your boating experience.

(2) Durable. This thing took everything we could throw at it from salt, or chlorine in the pool and still looks like the day we bought it.

(3) Fun factor. I couldn't imagine going boating with the kids and our friends without it now. It brought so much fun to our day trips and many great memories that we’ll hold onto forever.

(4) Storage. Our Aqua Lily Pad BULLFROG is big, but there are so many ways to store it on a boat. Bow strapped to the handrail or rear deck worked for us, then when it was all over, we brought it inside the boat and locked it up, ready for the next trip.

(5) Anticipation. Not that anyone really needs to be convinced too hard to take a day trip on the harbour, but when they imagine themselves floating off the back of the boat in the sun with a drink in hand, it does create anticipation for the day ahead!


I don’t have anything negative to say about the product. 


Some may say it's more expensive, and I'd say you get what you pay for. But the memories and fun we've had are simply priceless.


Our lives with family and friends have only been made richer by the experience of taking the Aqua Lily Pad out on our boating adventures!
