There's nothing quite like being out on the water, sailing on a sunny day. It's no wonder you get the urge to pull a Rose from Titanic, and stand at the front of the boat screaming, "I'm flying." Whether you’re with your friends soaking up the sun on the lake, or you’re with your family sailing the ocean on a cruise, you'll want to have some boat puns with you for all the amazing pics you take on your journey.

As cheesy as they can be, a good pun can make just about anyone smile. You might want to caption your next boat selfie with something that will make your friends as happy as the perfect sea day makes you. That's why you need the below sailing puns at your fingertips. They’ll come in handy as you’re capturing videos of your crew singing, "I'm On A Boat" by The Lonely Island or taking sunset snaps of you standing at the bow with your arms wide out. You also have plenty of sunglasses selfies of you lounging on the top deck with the water in the background that need to be shared on Instagram.

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes cruise ships are still a high risk for COVID-19, going out on the boat for the day once you’re fully vaccinated is considered safe.
