15 Instagrams That Will Give You Wanderlust of the Water Variety

Water, water, everywhere — especially on our Instagram feeds. With summer travel in full (and sunny) swing, we’re wanting to splish, splash the day away. Who’s with us? But we’re not talking about epic pool parties; we have a case of around-the-world water wanderlust. Lucky for us, we’re not the only ones. Check out these 15 water-lovin’ Instagrams whose snaps score lots of double taps.


1. @scubapro: Being a professional scuba diver sounds like the best job ever. Live vicariously through these deep-diving pros with this account that’s filled with amazing shark snaps, shipwrecks and everything else under the sea.

2. @corey_wilson: When you’re a professional photographer for a popular surfing magazine, you know you’ll have a big following on Instagram. Corey Wilson’s photos capture the true art of surfing and the laid-back vibe of the culture.

Cilla_Johnson

3. @cillajohnson: She has the selfie stick snaps on lock, and we’re totally jealous because ours never look that good. This adventure-seeker practically lives in the water, and you’ll get front-row views of her underwater shots and surfboard snaps. Seriously, we want her life.

run2themountains

4. @run2themountains: This stay-at-home mom-turned-nature-lovin’ photographer has us in awe of her feed that’s filled with gorgeous pics that would please Mother Nature herself.

5. @cdimitrius: Shark Week has nothin’ on Cristian Dimitrius. This Emmy-winning cinematographer and photographer is wild at heart and captures underwater pics like nobody else could. Dive in, ’cause his Instagram account is breathtaking.

Alex_Strohl

6. @alexstrohl: Looking for shot after shot of OMG mountains, lakes and… anything else in this big, beautiful world? Alex Strohl’s account is the destination for you. This adventure photographer makes us want to travel to every place he snaps.

Chris_Burkard

7. @chrisburkard: From TED talks to gorgeous waves shots found within the pages of surf magazines, Chris Burkard is proof you can do anything you put your mind to. After all, he taught himself the art of photography. ‘Nough said.

Clark_Little

8. @clarklittle: It’s a #fact that Hawaii is the ultimate playground for any water lover. Clark Little submerges himself, literally, in said playground to capture candid wave and wildlife shots. Even Starbucks is a fan, featuring some of his gorgeous work in their Hawaiian locations.

9. @waterlust: This environmental organization’s goal is to get everyone to think about the impact water has on them. Something to definitely think about as you scroll through all the incredible ocean pics on their feed.

10. @oceanconservancy: Doing good for the environment never looked so good. Ocean Conservancy is a nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to fighting the numerous threats to the oceans around the world. Their Instagram account shows the beautiful things they are fighting for (and then some).

11. @beau_johnston_photography: Capturing the power of the world’s waves seems like a difficult task, but Beau Johnston nails it every single time. Strong currents appear graceful, intense waves look totally surfable and his pics prove that no two waves are alike.

12. @noaa: This is the official Instagram of U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That’s definitely a mouthful, but their feed is an eyeful of adorable wildlife shots.

Which Instagram account has the best water shots around? Tell us in the comments below.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
