Summer always seems to fly by and you’re never quite ready to give up the sunshine and lazy days spent chilling on the boat when August comes around. While you can still take your boat for a spin at the peak of autumn, nothing is as sweet as those summer afternoons spent coasting through the waves. Feeling the sunshine and sea mist kiss your face while you’re off at sea in the peak of summer is a bliss worth sharing to the Instagram grid — but not without some boating captions to seal the deal. Luckily, you can take those summer vibes with you by snapping some photos next time you’re out on the water and posting those memories to Instagram with some boat captions.

Whether you’re more of a yacht or sailboat stan, you can serve up some major #boatszn vibes and a unique summer aesthetic on Instagram paired with the perfect boating captions. An afternoon along the shore of Miami Beach can be the perfect opportunity to snap videos of your besties in bucket hats, beachy jewelry, and cute swimsuits, and with their favorite hard seltzer in hand. If you’re hanging near a cozy cove in Cape Cod, you can take grainy pictures on a film camera of your boat snacks, which likely include a lobster roll, kettle-cooked chips, and watermelon.

You can lean into the vibe of your destination and create something that’ll instantly bring you back to that specific place. Unfortunately, these moments don’t last forever, but you can memorialize those perfect summer days spent on the water with your friends with pics and a unique boat caption for Instagram. That’s the easiest way for you and your crew to hold onto all the good times you had along the shoreline during boat season.
