The Pacific Ocean is to the east of Australia. By itself, it covers 46% of the world. It’s by far the largest ocean. This also means that the Pacific Ocean is larger than all the land masses put together. This is an incredible feat, considering how large the land masses are compared to humans. This ocean also has the deepest point - the Marianas Trench, just off the coast of California, in the United States of America. The trench reaches a total depth of 35,797 feet.

This ocean is divided into two halves. The equator straddles the ocean, so it is divided into the North Pacific Ocean, and the South Pacific Ocean. Only two islands that sit in the Pacific Ocean straddle the equator, and they are considered to be in the South Pacific Ocean.
