The armed group of activists were pictured enjoying the sunshine as they relaxed in swan and flamingo paddle boats in Band-e Amir National Park, located near Bamiyan province.
TMZ reports that the soldiers had their weapons with them in the boats, including rifles and what appeared to be a rocket launcher.
The bizarre scene is the last of the surreal situations photographed.
Earlier this month, Taliban soldiers were spotted taking advantage of the Dodgems at a fair in Afghanistan, which they have now taken over following a withdrawal of US and British troops and evacuations from citizens in the country.
Activists were also photographed using a gymnasium.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Taliban had banned girls from attending secondary school in Afghanistan, with only boys and teachers invited to attend.
The group said it would respect women’s rights when it took control of the country earlier this month, but it appears it has already gone against its word.
The latest ruling said: “All male teachers and students should attend their educational institution” – there was no mention of women or girls.
The literacy rate for women is now 30% in Afghanistan, almost double what it was in 2001.
The United Nations children’s agency, UNICEF, said: “It is essential that all girls, including older girls, can return to school without further delay.
“For that, we need female teachers to resume teaching. “
The Taliban also appear to have replaced the Ministry of Women’s Affairs with a department promoting strict religious doctrine.
A sign of the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice was put up in Kabul on Friday, in what was the seat of women’s affairs.
Women have been seen protesting on social media as the Taliban have not said whether a new women’s ministry will open.
On Monday, the Mirror exclusively revealed that the Taliban had recruited Chinese cyber spies to help them spy on Afghan civilians as part of a mission to prevent uprisings.
Beijing sent its top communications experts to Kabul to show the Taliban how to intercept phone calls on landlines and mobile networks, and monitor internet and social media usage.

Western intelligence sources said the goal would be to prevent rebellions from organizing on social media.
A US intelligence source said, “China is courting the Taliban, preparing for this day for years.
“He has long been in control of citizen communication and has become adept at monitoring phones, the Internet, all forms of communication.
“This is likely to give the Taliban immense power and control over the whole country, as social media could be a catalyst for those who want to revolt. It also gives the people they track down, like former officials and security personnel, few options for how they communicate with other networks. “
