If you're the kind of person who absolutely loves heading to any large body of water as soon as warm weather comes around, chances are, you're a boat person. You’re down for anything boating-related: swimming, tanning, and maybe even fishing if you’re feeling adventurous. You'll gladly paddle around in a kayak on a sunny lake day, or spend an evening under the stars sipping Champagne on a yacht with your friends. Regardless of what type of floating vehicle you prefer, you'll definitely need boat captions to document those amazing summer moments on Instagram.

Spending time on a boat is pretty much the closest you can get to the definition of summer — besides the beach, of course. You get to enjoy the warm sunshine, relaxing and catching a tan, jumping into the clear blue water beneath you, and of course, spending some time bonding with your nearest and dearest. This is especially important after not seeing your BFFs for so long due to social distancing, which is why you’ll be snapping tons of selfies together enjoying the #summerliving lifestyle to the fullest.

When it comes time to post your sea day snaps, you’ll need boat quotes to accompany them. Some of the best boat Instagram captions are punny, others are super sweet. It all depends on the vibes of the day, so make sure you keep these 45 boating captions handy for whatever #content you end up with.
