The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on earth and takes up one-third of planet's total surface. It is also the deepest ocean as the Mariana Trench reaches a depth of 10,900 meters. There are over 25,000 islands first discovered by Polynesian explorers, as they slowly made their way migrating from Asia across the Pacific, over 2000 years ago. The Pacific was sighted by Europeans in the beginning of the 16th century, when Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa walked across the Isthmus of Panama. It was named the peaceful sea or Pacific, by Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in 1521, who encountered calm seas during his journey.
