How Many Miles Deep Is the Ocean?

Answer

The ocean is not as deep as one may think. At its top depth, the ocean is only about 2.5 miles deep. However, the ocean is a vast expanse of water that is divided up into several geographic oceans, including the popular Atlantic and Pacific oceans that border the United States. The bottom of the ocean is known as the ocean floor and is home to both animal and plant life that often feed off each other. Many have explored the ocean floor over the last century with the help of SCUBA underwater breathing equipment.
