Both of my kids are on the swim team, so it is inevitable that we spend a lot of time at the pool.  And the beach, water park, lake, and so on.  Take summer, for instance – the kids are at the pool a minimum of 1 hour a day, if not more (often more like 5 hours!).  My life consists of toting around towels, sunscreen, goggles, snacks – you name it.

I noticed my friend had a really nice bag at the pool, with lots of room for storage.  I knew I needed one for myself, and she told me her bag was from Saltwater Canvas.

Saltwater Canvas is a company that makes a variety of bags that are great for things like the beach, pool, etc.  I ordered their largest bag, which is the Whale Bag (without the zippered top), because I know that I need as much space as possible!  This bag has so many features:

Mesh Whale Bag® with Waterproof Fabric Base holds 6 beach towels, toys, drinks and food
Keeps water and sand on beach, where they belong
9 big pockets hold your beach favorites upright & easy to see.
1 Secret zippered pocket inside and zippered pocket on outside
Snap hook for keys or glasses
Family Size: 15″ Tall x 12.5″ Wide x 15″ Oval Base
1.5″ doubled shoulder straps run length of bag
Hose it off at the end of the day, dries fast
Easy Rinse, hang dry


I love the purple color and was excited to “move in” to my new bag when it arrived.  I used it all summer and into the fall, from water parks to our daily swim practice to a day on the lake.

I love all the pockets, which are great for sorting your things.  I fit so much in my Saltwater Canvas bag, including the essentials like towels, sunscreen, water, snacks, phone charger, etc.  The bag is very sturdy and has held up well.  I have put some pretty heavy stuff in it (like multiple water bottles, snacks, wet towels) and I haven’t had any issues.  It is easy to keep the bag clean, and we even survived sunscreen leaking all over things, because the bag is washable.

My husband also spends a lot of time in the water, and we bought the Whale Bag that has a zippered top.  He uses this for lots of essentials, like swim trunks, goggles, towel, etc.
