There are so many float choices in Vancouver now. I’ve floated in various cities, mostly in various forms of sensory deprivation pods. However, what makes Pure Float unique are the large float rooms; the large surface area of the water and airy space remind me of floating in the ocean. I recommend Pure Float as an excellent place to try floating for the first time, especially for anyone who associates floating with claustrophobia since this is clearly a moot point in those high-ceilinged rooms. And for seasoned floaters like me, the polite/cheerful staff, clean environs and peaceful ambiance all contribute to a consistently great experience.

I always approach each session with an open mind and know that whether I have intense self-revelations, psychedelic hallucinations, or just a simple, restful nap in the middle of the day—it’s all good. There is no better use of my time!
