With summer approaching, 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 pool captions for Instagram. ‘Cause if you laid out by the pool or got in a good swim session and didn’t put it on Insta with the perfect pool caption, did it really happen?

If you have a pool float, your pool day can be even better. Pool floats were pretty much made for the 'Gram and can up the ante on any Instagram post just like some cute pool captions. Of course, 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 and pool day captions by your side. The perfect pool captions for Instagram will pair with any pic you want to post. It could be a photo of you lounging on the deck, soaking in the sun or a candid of you splashing around with your besties in the water. For any summertime moment in your camera roll, these pool Instagram captions will work.

Since your goal may be to have a clutter-free mind for those relaxing summer days, you don’t have to spend any time coming up with the right words on your own. Just copy and paste one of these 65 pool captions that matches your snap’s vibes. With these pool captions and your fave pair of sunnies, you’re ready to float into your own little world this summer.
