Welcome to the Sea Bottom website.
Sinbad searched the seven seas to find what he was looking for ... we've found a few more then seven seas. A modern Sea Cruise would be much more comfortable then the adventures of Sinbad and computers make searches much faster and safer.
A sea (pronounced see) is a large expanse of saline water (salt water) connected with an ocean. Almost three quarters (71%) of the surface of the Earth is covered by ocean. This global, interconnected body of salt water is divided by the continents and larger archipelagos into into five oceans as follows:
The term sea is also used for large, usually saline, lakes that lack a natural outlet, such as the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Galilee. The term is used in a less geographically precise manner as synonymous with ocean, as in the tropical sea or down to the sea shore, or even sea water referring to water of the ocean.
Many seas are marginal seas. A marginal sea is a sea bordering a continent and separated from an ocean by any of a variety of features such as:

Lunar maria are vast basaltic plains on the Moon that were thought to be bodies of water by early astronomers, who referred to them as "seas."
Liquid water is thought to be present under the surface of several moons, most notably Europa.
Liquid hydrocarbons are thought to be present on the surface of Titan, though it may be more accurate to describe them as "lakes" rather than "seas". The distribution of these liquid regions will hopefully be better known after the arrival of the Cassini probe.
The term "sea" has also been used in quantum physics quantum physics. Dirac sea is an interpretation of the negative energy states that comprises the vacuum.
