25 Photos That Will Trigger Your Thalassophobia.

The sea is full of wonders both above and under the waves, and some of the discoveries you'll find in the ocean might make you feel like you're in some kind of Hollywood movie. Some things will even make you feel like you're on another planet. But either way, you're so tempted to dip your toes in the water or even dive right on into the ocean depth to explore the ocean's scary depth. Even if it triggers your thalassophobia a bit, it's okay, because you're an adventurer and that kind of persistent fear and intense adrenaline rush doesn't frighten you. You get off on it!

Do you know what lies beneath the waters? Perhaps you think you know.

But there might be something lurking underneath. Maybe a shark could be scoping you out and you'd probably never know it until it was too late. Remember, this is their territory. You're just a guest, and can't always see what's right in front of you.

One thing you can count on is that the sea is like a beautiful artistic canvas.

It's got different shades of blues that no artist throughout history could ever hope to capture. It's absolutely breathtaking. What are you waiting for? The ocean is calling you. Answer it.

Watch where you're swimming because black holes aren't only in outer space.

There are chasms on the bottom of the ocean floor that like whirlpools. So don't get too close or it could pull you right on in and it's dark and scary down there.

Is this the maw of a sea-faring creature or something less sinister?

Well, it turns out that the bow of a ship can wind up looking like some sort of humongous fish ready to swallow you whole. Just to be on the safe side, you might want to poke it first before going in to explore.

Who needs Disney when you can enjoy an underwater salt mine full of fun?

The Rudolf Mine is located in Romania, 400 ft below the surface, and has plenty to see and do like a miniature golf course, bowling, a 180-seat amphitheater, and a boating lake.
