    Indian Ocean / Atlantic Ocean

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: While In Cape Agulhas, one would be able to see two Oceans at the same time: The Indian Ocean & the Atlantic Ocean.

    Cape Agulhas is the place where those two oceans meet. One can even put his each foot in different oceans at the same time :)

    Favorite thing: Two Oceans are being pictured on this photo. I took this shot. I'm the artist of this picture. Look forward and draw an imaginary line right in the middle: on the left you are seeing the Indian Ocean -&- on the right side you are seeing the Atlantic Ocean.
    See that ? - I'm an artist. :)

It is the only ocean to be named after a country, i.e., India.

    As one component of the interconnected global ocean, the Indian Ocean is delineated from the Atlantic Ocean by the 20° east meridian running south from Cape Agulhas, [...]
