How big is the Pacific Ocean?


This way to New Zealand! We know plenty about the land that lies due West from here, but little to nothing about what lives in the ocean all along the way.

Covering more than 30 percent of the Earth’s surface, the Pacific Ocean is the largest water mass on the planet. With a surface area of more than 60 million square miles (155 millions square kilometers), this ocean basin is larger than the landmass of all the continents combined. And it contains almost twice as much water as the world’s second largest body of water, the Atlantic Ocean.
