Now that it’s summer, it’s time to break out the sunscreen and swimming trunks for your summertime boating adventures. Whether your idea of a great afternoon on the lake is exploring some of the many island campgrounds on Minnesota lakes or eating an al fresco lunch at a shoreside restaurant, there’s one thing that makes every visit to the lake more fun: getting into the water. And the only thing that’s more fun than taking a dip in that water is getting pulled behind the boat on a cool new water toy!


At Canvaworks in Cokato, MN, we love summer fun on the lake as much as you do. That’s why we’re sharing our favorite recommendations for boating tow toys this summer! To get your custom marine products like Bimini tops and more, stop by Canvasworks today.

  1. Airhead Hot Dogs

Nothing says summer fun like a good old-fashioned hot dog. Airhead specializes in water toys and towable tubes, but their greatest creation is arguably their series of towable hot dogs. The red and yellow dogs feature individual seats lined up one after another and foam-filled, padded nylon handles so you can grip tightly without tearing up your hands. Seats feature EVA padding so it’s more comfortable to ride on as well. Choose from a Double Dog for one to two riders, a Hot Dog for one to three riders, or an extra-long Jumbo Dog for up to five riders.

  1. WOW Super Dog

Imagine a floating hot dog but with an actual dog and you’ll get the WOW Super Dog. The Super Dog features a cute little red weiner dog in the middle of a hot dog bun and seats two riders. A perfect tube for taking the kids out behind the pontoon this summer, the Super Dog is as adorable as it is fun.

  1. WOW Ducky

Who wouldn’t love to take a ride on the back of a giant duck with four of their favorite people? The WOW Ducky is a bright yellow duck that fairly resembles a rubber bathtub ducky and comes in several sizes with secure saddle seating and a big, soft tail for comfort. The Big Ducky and Double Ducky both seat up to two riders, with the Double Ducky reinforced for wilder rides.

There’s also the Lucky Ducky, which features secure cockpit seating to make it safer for younger riders. For the ultimate rubber ducky adventure, there’s the Mega Ducky, which carries up to five riders and comes with sidewalls and a backrest.

  1. Airhead Big Mable

If you’re looking for a straightforward towable that brings together durability and comfort, you’ll appreciate the Big Mable. This two-seater is built for comfort with cushioned walls for stabilization, padded handles, and EVA foam pads.
