Is there anything better than a day out on a boat? Maybe it is a relaxing sailboat in Santorini, or a lake day with a wakeboard. Perhaps it is your first cruise, or your last cruise or a paddle in your favorite spot. There is just something special about being out on the water. One of my favorite days was in the water in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. I could have spent a week cruising the beautiful islands and enjoying the view from the deck. Whatever brought you here, you will find the most comprehensive list of boat captions for Instagram! I have put together over 50 boat captions, from inspirational quotes to short messages to help you find the perfect caption for your boat photos.
