"While a "sea" is generally defined as a large lake that contains saltwater, or a specific portion of an ocean, the idiom "Sail the seven seas," is not so easily defined. "- [1]

A sea is a large body of water, typically bordering an ocean but not big enough to be called an ocean. Silverscreen pirates often refer to "sailing the seven seas."

Examples:

Lakes

Bodies of water that are called seas but don't join an ocean are in fact lakes with a different name.

  1. The Dead Sea is in fact a salt lake and much saltier than any ocean.
  2. The Caspian Sea is saltier than a typical freshwater lake but less salty than any ocean. [2]
