These Ingenious Floating Wheelchairs Make The Beach Accessible For Everyone

Ever since I saw that cute fish with a tiny wheelchair, I always wondered if we'd be able to get similar technology for people with disabilities to enjoy the water.

Well it turns out that I didn't have to wonder for too long, because floating wheelchairs are a thing.

And they look pretty darn cool.

Some public beaches even provide visitors with handicaps with the floating wheelchairs so they can go in the water with ease.

Now forgive me if this is something that a lot of people know about already, but I just find the whole thing pretty darn cool.

Beaches in Corpus Christi, Texas, like Padre Island, Magee Beach, and North Beach have recently added the new aquatic chairs for guests to enjoy. | Continuous News Coverage | Corpus Christi

The cost for one of these sweet chairs? About $2,500, depending on where you get them from.

Other beach and off-road wheelchairs come equipped with big balloon tires that make it easier for people to navigate through sand and dirt, something that allows people with disabilities who want to experience the great outdoors much easier. The Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve and Learning center in Texas are making the fat-tired wheelchairs available for guests with disabilities as well.
