We bought this raft for our visit to Schoodic Lake in Maine. It’s a bit small for two people (unless you are putting two kids or very small/thin people in it). However, for one person it easily fits up to 280lbs. My husband used it and he fit just fine. Given the way the boat is structured, it makes sense to sit in the bigger end. It is much more comfortable and easier to maneuver this way. Once fully inflated it is sturdy and comfortable.
Every time I inflate our raft I think to myself “if this is the last time this thing works, it’ll be worth the money I paid for it”.I’ve timed it and using the hand pump, it takes me just less than 5 minutes to completely set up and inflate. That’s WITH my little ones climbing on me and doing their version of helping.Really easy to steer and maneuver. Raft folds away easily and fits in the trunk of my sedan. Best Christmas gift I’ve ever gotten my kiddos. Do recommend.
Amazed with this thing! Have had it for almost a year and am now a huge fan of Intex products. I took this to Lake Tahoe last summer for a week and probably spent a total of 30 hours in it. For those of you who have been to Tahoe, you know how big the lake is. We trusted this thing to take us in and around the lake without fear. It is rather small, so for those of you who are adults and thinking about buying this, I would suggest a size up. Even though it looks like its for little kids, I definitely pushed this thing passed its limits and it has impressed me thoroughly. I have used it multiple times since the Tahoe trips at multiple other lakes and it has held the test of time.
I bought this inflatable boat 3 weeks ago for my 10 pound puppy to float in the pool without getting wet. She loves it, gets excited and steps off the concrete into her little boat all by herself! The grandkids have played with it also, and it is still holding up well. I'm very happy with my purchase.
It was easy to inflate and my my son loves it so far. I have only tried this in the pool, as for my son just wanted it to play not sure how good it would fair in other water.
I am writing from my boyfriends account.My friends and I were doing a beach camping trip, so I thought I might as well buy the boat and bring it with me just in case. After a few drinks, we had the bold idea to take the boat out on the Pacific Ocean. I am happy to report that the boat survived multiple trips out in the water, comfortably fit the two of us, and as of now, zero issues to report! (knock on wood). Very happy with this product!
