Have you gone in the water here? If so, I'm curious as of how that experience felt like! In Geography, I was taught that a person can float on the surface of the Dead Sea without swimming . Is that so?

Personally, I've only swum in the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Constance (and heaps of smaller lakes in France).

Yes, one can float on one's back in the Dead Sea without swimming.

Yes, I did go in the Dead Sea water many years ago and I too was able to float just like one sees in all the famous pictures of people floating in the Dead Sea.
