52 Cute Mermaid Puns That'll Make Such A Splash On The 'Gram


Ariel got it all wrong, I want to be where the mermaids are. Who wouldn't want to be under the sea exploring the depths and befriending the fish? Plus, you can't forget about that mermaid hair. Seriously, I want a mermaid to tell me all of her secrets to voluminous, long locks that look great in and out of the water. I'm truly dying over here to know what it's like to be a mermaid, but until I find my own Ursula to give me a tail, I'll have to settle for my iridescent sparkles, rainbow hair, and cute mermaid puns for Instagram.

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. The mermaid craze is all too real. Nowadays, we have mermaid makeup, mermaid movies, and the mermaid Frappuccino at Starbucks. There's even a pop-up Mermaid Museum for you to snap some Insta-worthy pics your friends will totally want to sea. Just as much as people love mermaids, they also love a good pun. It's like they were mer-made for each other, so when you're about to post that mermaid hair selfie, pics of your mer-squad watching The Little Mermaid, or just ocean dreaming at the beach; make a splash by using one of these 52 mermaid puns for your Instagram caption.
