An ocean (, the sea of classical antiquity) is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere. On Earth, an ocean is one of the major conventional divisions of the World Ocean. These are, in descending order by area, the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern (Antarctic), and Arctic Oceans. The word sea is often used interchangeably with "ocean" in American English but, strictly speaking, a sea is a body of saline water (generally a division of the world ocean) partly or fully enclosed by land.

The ocean is always greener...

The deeper the water gets, the bluer it is. Here in Boracay, I was already very far from shore; yet it was still this beautiful color ~

The deepest part of the ocean is 36,200 feet, deep enough to fit about 37 Eiffel Towers stacked on top of one another. And Mt. Everest.
