The Float Community

Our Float Advocate program lets you share your float experiences to educate your friends, family and social media following about floating and healthy living, while earning free floats! We are specifically seeking floaters in our local community with a healthy lifestyle, a desire to spread the word, and a social media presence to become Float Advocates.

If selected as one of our Float Advocates, we’ll send you an email explaining the benefits, discounts and hook-ups that go along with being an East Coast Floats Advocate. Additionally your photo, a short bio and links to your public social media accounts will be featured on our site, so people in the community know how to connect with and learn more about you!
