Feel like you have conquered all the camping grounds and are looking for a new challenge? What would you feel about camping on water? The North American sportswear company SmithFly has introduced an insane floating tent. The tent is called the shoal tent and allows you to sleep on water.

The tent is free from poles and saves you the hassle of putting it up. However, you must remember to keep the portable air compressor. The base of the floating tent inflates to provide a sturdy floating raft. The air pressure in the other two compartments ensures that the top will remain upright even during strong winds.

The waterproof tent uses sturdy zippers wherever necessary and is a cozy 2.4 x 2.4 meters and can accommodate a camper very easily. The floating base acts as an air bed so you don’t have to carry your mattresses with you when you are going out in the wild.

There have been concerns raised about floating downstream. The company has the answer for that as well and on their website, they say, “The tent topper sides all attach and detach using heavy duty hook and loop for the ability to use just the top and get in and out easily through the sides if the need arises suddenly.”

It means you can jump out of bed directly into the water for a swim. The company that brings us the floating tent creates rugged modular gear to target a hunting and fishing crowd. The next time you feel like going out for camping, take the shoal tent along to have a unique experience.
