Sea Where You Can Swim

Sea Where You Can Swim

The major seas of the world include the South China sea, the Caribbean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Bering Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, the Arabian Sea, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Sea of Japan, Hudson Bay, East China, Andaman, the Black Sea and the Red Sea.

The Seven Seas is a figurative term referring to the seas and oceans of the world.

During the Age of Discovery (1450-1650), the Seven Seas were commonly referred to the then seven navigable seas of the world: Atlantic, Arctic, Indian and Pacific Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea, Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

Yet others disagree and report the ancient Seven Seas to be the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, Black Sea, the Adriatic Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. But, of course, the ancient Hindus, Chinese, Persians, Romans and many others referred to the Seven Seas as different bodies of water.

Maps of the World has great maps where you can see all the wonderful places to do open water swimming.
