40 Beach Puns For Captions That Totally Seas The Day

Don't let the bad vibes tide you down.

Originally Published: 

On any given summer day, you find yourself unintentionally quoting “Starships” by Nicki Minaj in your group chat with one simple message: “Let’s go to the beach.” Even if your besties just packed up their beach bags and put coolers with delicious snacks in your car trunk yesterday, you’re more than ready to dip your toes in the soft sand and saltwater again. Plus, you want to add more summery pics to your Instagram feed, along with some hilarious beach puns.

You may have already posed with your surfboard, or asked your bestie to take a sparkly selfie with you after you reapplied your sunscreen. That’s only the start of the #content you can get at the beach, thanks to all of the natural and neutral backdrops. With your camera in tow, you can grab snaps of your favorite drink sitting on top of your towel, and your crew running into the waves. You can hand the lens over to your creative BFF, and have them get snaps of you laying on your towel and covering your eyes, or positioning your sunglasses on your face.

The possibilities are as endless as dad jokes, which is what these beach puns will remind you of. They’re a little cliché, but give a lovely shoutout to the sea creatures, snacks, and scenic views you’re spending your summer days with. Add one to your favorite beach pic, before you tap the “share” button.
