There are 26 States that border an ocean, gulf or bay. These States are:
Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigin, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Of the 24 remaining states, 15 borders at least one of these 26 States. These 15 States are:
Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, and West Virginia.If one were to then eliminate any of the remaining 9 States that border at least one of these 15 States one should be left with at least one State in order to discover a triply landlocked State, yet each of the 9 remaining States are eliminated, thus there is no triply landlocked State for the given definition.
