After a year of being cooped up inside, you probably can’t wait to spend countless hours by the pool. Don’t let that sunlight go to waste... or even those cute swimsuits you spent all winter purchasing at bargain prices. Be prepared to seas the day with a lot of clever captions for pool pics. ‘Cause if you laid out by the pool or got in a good swim session, and didn’t put it on Instagram, did it really happen?

If you have a pool float, even better. Pool floats were legit made for the 'Gram, and can up the ante on any Instagram post just like some good pool captions. If you're really trying to press the "extra" button in the relaxation department, you'll want to have a matching beverage for your pool float as well. You know, because summer is meant for welcoming those "rosé all day" vibes with open arms (if you're 21 or over).

Since pool captions for Instagram that have a bit of pizzazz can be a great way to complement the perfect summer snapshot, you'll want to have some pool quotes by your side. Obviously, you want to have a clutter-free mind for those chill pool days, so choose any of these 50 pool captions for your pics before you float into your own little world.
