The Best Sea Quotes and Captions 

There is something about the word ‘sea’ that allows an immediate sense of calm to wash over me.

I can’t help envisioning myself staring out at the ocean and smelling the sea salt while my hair blows back and forth in the sea breeze. Add in a picnic on the sand with a French baguette and some brie cheese on a weekend afternoon and it’s like my mind is guiding me on my own mediation through imagination.

I’m curious. What is it that you picture when you think of the sea?

I have written about quotes pertaining to the ocean and vacation before; my beach quotes post is a popular article. But, I noticed that some of you were looking specifically for sea quotes and sea captions. That is why I decided to make a post specifically dedicated to quotes about the sea and captions for the sea.

It’s interesting. At the time, I hadn’t even thought that it might be prudent to separate these posts. However, the sea, the ocean, the beach, and the shore — each word brings back a completely different memory — so it makes absolute sense that anyone researching quotes about any one of these terms would be looking for something more specific.

If you would like further inspiration or quotes that pertain more to the beach, definitely take a look at these beach quotes in my post entitled 30 Best Beach Quotes You Need to Read
