Yes, conditionally .

If you had a big enough body of water held in a container by gravity it would. Although most of it would immediately deform from a sphere into layers on top of the water . This is possible because Saturn is mostly made up of gas that is less dense (less mass per unit of volume) than water.

The problem would be finding a solid planet big enough to put the water on.

If you could find a body of water large enough to fit Saturn, yes it could float in the water. The density of Saturn is at 0.687 g/cmรยณ.

If there was a body of water big enough, Saturn could float on it.

The Planet Saturn does float in water; Saturn is actually made of helium gas, etc. You see, helium gas floats because its density is less than liquid water, so Saturn, the planet, floats on water, if you ever had a tub that large. LOL

Saturn would actually float in water if you placed it in it. Pluto would also float in water, but is no longer considered a planet.

Yes Saturn has less density than water. Thus if you could put Saturn in a large pool of water, it will float.

Saturn has denstiy so low that it could float on water.

Yes, Saturn is less dense than water so it will float on it. But the ocean would have to be 70,000 miles deep to give Saturn enough water to float in. The deepest ocean on planet Earth is about 7 miles deep.

It's light enough to float on water

Saturn has a very low density and it would be able to float on water. The density of Saturn is: 0.687 grams per cubic centimeter.

saturn would float because it is a one of the four gas planet and hardly has an atmosphere like earth does.

Yes. If you can find a large enough bath (and enough water). The density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cmยณ

It has a lot of mass, but it is not very dense. Its density is less than that of water, so it would float on it.

Saturn has a density less than liquid water, the only one in our solar system for which this is the case. In a thought experiment it is therefore the only one we know of that would float on water.

The low density of Saturn would allow it to float in liquid water.

Float. The problem is whether you can find a bathtub big enough for it :D

Saturn is the least dense of all the planets and could float in water. Saturn has an extensive ring system.

Saturn, because it has a lower density than water.

Saturn would float. It is the least dense planet, with a density that is lower than the density of water.

Saturn. Obviously it's not a very practical idea, but Saturn is less dense than water.

So light it would actually float on water.
