Sunday is Father’s Day and with it comes the opportunity to enjoy quality water time with dear old Dad.  If it’s a backyard pool party, there are a number of ways to enhance your aquatic experience this Father’s Day.  A backyard pool party for the family and friends will take on another dimension with the inclusion of toys and pool games for the festivities.  Grab a snorkel and mask set and set up a scavenger hunt using dive rings and pool toys.  For a combination of games, look to the Across Pool Volleyball/Badminton Set from Water Gear.  This set includes the standards, net, ball, rackets and birdies for guaranteed hours of pool fun.  If basketball is your game, add another dimension and play a championship series of your own with the Heavy Duty Water Basketball Game, also from Water Gear.  Team or one-on-one competitions will keep everyone involved, and it may give Dad a reason, or the perfect excuse, to officiate the action.

Perhaps Dad just wants to kick back and relax this Father’s Day.  Maybe he just wants to sit back and enjoy watching it all.  If that’s the case, let him lounge in style and watch all the competition with a quality flotation device.  Keep beverages at the ready and share some floating time with Dad on the River Run II from Wet Products.  This dual tube design features seating for two, two cup holders, two handles (for the rogue wave) and showcases a cooler in the middle that keeps beverages cold and ready.  Wet Products also offers the 18 Pocket Suntanner.  This raft is over 6 feet long, 2 feet wide and includes a pillow for Dad to rest his weary head on.  However, Dad may need to load up on the sunscreen in case the competition is so riveting he happens to doze off for a few minutes on this floating nap vessel.

Remember, whatever activities you have planned this Father’s Day, it’s always safety first.  Enjoy, and Happy Father’s Day!
