If you're lucky enough to get to the beach or jump into a pool during the summer, you know there's nothing like it. But if you think your summer water fun could use a few upgrades, Jared Cotter's got what you're looking for. Check out our list of the 3 ways you can make hanging poolside, on a boat, or at the beach more fun, and even safer, all year long.

1. Swim Safer

The Kingii is a personal floatation device that, should you get a cramp or end up in danger underwater, deploys a floatie that can help you get back to the surface. It's great for open water or beach trips, but even in the backyard, there's nothing wrong with a little extra security. Plus the design looks a bit cooler than those arm floaties with seahorses on them…

Grab a Kingii from the company's website for around $90.

2. A Floatie With a View

There's always something fun to see under the sea, but if you hate wearing goggles, nose plugs, nose goggles, whatever, the Sea Window Tortuga float might be for you. The magnifying window helps you see what's going on underneath you, without tying you up in a mask – perfect for curious kids who don't like snorkels, or for parents who want to play with their kids in the water, but aren't trying to wet their new 'do.

See more sea with this float, available on Amazon for around $45.

3. *Jaws Theme*

If you've been looking to finally make another Jaws remake, we've found your star. This remote controlled mini shark can take on pools, rivers, fish tanks, you name it! The kids will love having a new pet shark, and it doesn't even cost that much to take care of it – it's only $16 on Amazon.
