Floating Swim Platform And Swimming Docks Buying Guide

If you live on a lake or body of water, a swimming platform can help you get the most out of it. And while our popular floating dock is most commonly used for boating, it also makes for a perfect floating swim platform. Let’s discuss why you should consider a floating swimming platform and what to look for when exploring your options.

Why You Should Consider A Floating Swim Platform

JetDock’s floating dock is easy to install and ideal for a variety of uses outside of boating. These include swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, photography and even wildlife research. Our swimming docks are the no-hassle, zero maintenance alternative to traditional docks. Here’s why:

Floating Swimming Docks Are Safer Than Traditional Docks

When you’re relaxing or diving off of your swimming platform, the last thing you want to worry about is slipping or getting a splinter. With JetDock, you don’t have to. We designed our floating swimming docks with safety in mind.

Our floating swim platform includes the following safety measures:

  • Superior slip resistance
  • Soft, round edges
  • Durable, high-quality materials

A Floating Swim Dock Requires Less Maintenance

A JetDock floating swim platform requires almost none of your typical dock maintenance. In fact, because there are no motors, cable gears or electricity, there’s nothing to grease, lubricate, rust, rot or corrode. Simply keep the surfaces clean and free from debris and your floating dock will pretty much always work.

JetDock swimming docks are made from the finest high-density grade polymer, which also makes them an environmentally friendly option that won’t crack or degrade from UV or marine exposure. And because of the modular design, in the rare event that a piece of your dock breaks, you can easily replace that one piece as opposed to having to replace the entire floating swim platform.

A Floating Swimming Platform Is Incredibly Versatile

Floating swimming docks provide the versatility and ease you want in your new swimming platform. JetDock’s floating docks can easily be shrunk down or expanded by removing or adding modules.

And if you ever need to convert your swimming platform into a floating walkway, it can quickly and easily be accomplished with our floating dock system. This versatility and convertibility make floating swimming docks an appealing option when considering a new swimming platform.

What To Look For In A Floating Swim Platform

Once you’ve decided to go with a floating swim platform, it’s time to start shopping around. There are four key things to look for to ensure you get a superior product that will last for years to come.

1. Durability

No one wants to spend their weekend removing protruding nails or replacing old planks. Your swimming platform shouldn’t be a chore. Look for a dock that’s made of high-quality materials and offers unmatched durability. This means minimal maintenance, if any, in the long run.

2. A Non-Slip (Splinter-Free) Surface

When out on the lake, safety is the most important thing to keep in mind. Make it so that, in terms of your floating swim platform, you don’t have to give it another thought. Opt for a dock that offers a non-slip surface made from a splinter-free material. Trust us, your feet will thank you.

3. Size Options

One size most definitely does not fit all when it comes to your new swimming platform. You need a manufacturer that offers a wide range of customization options so you get just the right dock for your space.

4. Room To Grow

In case you ever want to change up the shape or size of your swimming platform, you need a dock that offers true versatility and mobility. Look for a floating dock that makes it quick and virtually painless to shrink and/or expand.
