Boating Gift Recommendation #2 – Boating Floating Bluetooth Speaker

Boating gift idea number two is this highly rated floating bluetooth speaker. 

Use your device to play your tunes from a up to a claimed 100 feet away (our tests showed it doesn’t quite reach that distance. However the distance was still impressive).

The best thing about a floating bluetooth speaker, is that if falls overboard, you can recover it. As this speaker has a IPX7 rating, it will not even get damaged.

It is worth noting that this speaker is actually designed for pool use. However we love it on our boat and have tested it in the actual lakes. We can confirm it floats and is absolutely waterproof. We use this on our floating water mats in summer. 

This speaker supports bluetooth 5.3 with up to 24 hours of playtime. Again, boaters alike will love this out on the water. What is better than chilling and listening to cool tunes?

Measurements are 8.5 inch x 5.8 inch. Making it perfect for your smartphone and other personal items.
