Q: Does the Floater suit make it easier for my child to swim?
A: Yes. Because you do not have to expend effort to stay above the water, you can swim easier and move faster in it. The patented front panel in the Floater® or Floaty® lifts your body above the surface and the suits flexible design makes it easy to swim.
Q: As a parent, I'm curious, why not just give my child a shorty wetsuit?
A: It depends on the wetsuit design. The more neoprene the more buoyancy. A child's wetsuit by itself may or may not have enough buoyancy. By adding our patented foam panel, the Floater® or Floaty® guarantees flotation in all normal water situations. In fact, most kids can’t go under water even if they try.
My family and I were on our first day of vacation in Hawaii when Chipper and Ruth from Airtime Watertime noticed my 10-year-old son was having difficulty staying afloat while snorkeling. They quickly came to his aid and helped him safely and calmly to shore where they introduced themselves along with the terrific solution of the Floater wetsuit. We quickly purchased one for our son and he spent the rest of our vacation confidently snorkeling and enjoying the wonderful sea life. Without the suit I'm convinced he would have been limited and perhaps disinterested altogether in the experience.
Thanks to Airtime Watertime and the product they provided our vacation was all the more enjoyable. They further explained the benefit of the suit to help snorkelers float above the natural wonders of the coral reefs below to protect them from further damage. Overall a fantastic company that's offering a great product for a worthwhile cause!

This is the best!!!! My daughter is paralyzed and was scared to go in the water. Now I can’t get her out. She feels safe and wants to swim all the time now. Thank you so much!!!! It is by far the best float suit.
Bobby has autism and can’t express his joy with words but you can see and feel it. Your suit has allowed him to have mastery at every depth and given us peace of mind while he swims.
Thank you all so much for helping him confidently and safely visit his happy place.
