Some of the best stories come from people who are fresh out of a float. Our “Tales from the Tank” series offers writers a chance to create something from nothing. Want to submit your story? Email us for details at [email protected]
If you’re willing to take 4 hours out of your week to volunteer for a worthy cause, we think you deserve a float! Learn more about the charities we’re working with and how you can earn a float.
The feeling of being weightless when you’re used to carrying around a growing baby is a wonderful relief. Get to know the participants and read the candid journal entries from floating mothers to be.
Art Gallery Program
Although we’re about promoting “Nothing” if our walls had nothing on it, Float On just wouldn’t be the same. Inspired out of our original art program, we’re currently displaying a monthly gallery of local artists and one piece is inspired by floating. Want to become our next featured artist?

Our art program yielded a book (Artwork from the Void) with 150 full color pieces inspired directly by the float tanks.
Our music project yielded over 25 original tracks from Portland performers. Since then, more albums have been released.
We are born from the void with nothing but our bodies in tow. Everything else – names, preferences, identities, occupations – gloms on later.
Starting up, it was our goal to make sure that anyone can float, regardless of how much money they have or what circumstances they’re in. We started up an arts program, internships, and a barter system as our initial efforts to make that happen. All of them allow people to float at discounted rates, or for free, and help Float On out a lot in the process.
A Music Program was the next to launch as part of our Float Creations, and resulted in 3 CD’s of float music that were mastered. And to support our love for delicious food, we’ve produced a cookbook from our Chef Program.
Read more on any of these programs to see what has been produced from the creative minds of the participants.
Learn what happens when we introduce our favorite local chefs to floating and ask them to create the ideal post-float meal!
