I paid for and reserved 2 floats for friends of mine in November. Float House lost the reservations and embarrassed me. It took hours of time out of my vacation (endless emails) to rectify their error. An appointment I called to cancel in February wasn't...More

This was my second time going, which I knew what to expect. I totally appreciated the experience of weightlessness, quietness and senselessness. I was in room 5. Thank you.

Very clean, super friendly staff. Privacy respected. Total time was 90 min. Clearly explained what to expect so you could thoroughly enjoy the float experience. Tourists receive a discount! Can’t wait for my next float.

Their ad states 90 minutes of senseless floatation. The experience actually lasted 60 minutes. During that time you are to see, feel and hear nothing. Well my experience wasn’t at all that. During my session I could hear the hair dryer in the washroom down...More

Hi Parick, All our float sessions are 90 minutues, from the time you enter the room to the time you exit. This includes the shower time. We have always promoted our servicies this way. You are correct that you are not floating for 90-minutes as...More

The last time I floated was in 1980... The Float House Victoria does not disappoint, it is peaceful, clean and well thought out. After my 90 minute session I emerged from the float and realized I would be taking part in this more often now,...More

Hello! We are very sorry that you felt claustrophobic inside the tank. Although these tanks are very spacious and easy to enter/exit, this is an issue that we speak about very often with our guests. What's interesting, is that many people with severe claustrophobia can...More
