Floater is a skill that can be given to a lemming. It is the second of the eight skills available in Lemmings, as well as the Classic Tribe in Lemmings 2. A floater has the capability to survive a fall of any height by using an umbrella. The floater is a permanent skill - once assigned to a lemming, it has that skill for the rest of the level.
- Floaters often work with Climbers, in which case the Lemming becomes an Athlete.
- In the 2006 remake, their umbrellas are always visible, and folded up while walking.
