Also known as fear of the sea.

 

Have you ever felt uncomfortable looking at pictures like this?

Just a little queasy?

Have you ever been CONVINCED that there's something beneath you?

Maybe it started after you saw this scene in Titanic:

Maybe it started in a swimming pool:

Well, you're not alone. You're one of many people with thalassophobia, or fear of the sea.

How does this picture make you feel?

What about this one?

Or this?

Does reading this just make you a little light-headed?

Picture yourself on a boat late at night and seeing this lurking just below the surface:

Or imagine diving deep down into the ocean and finding this sign:

Think about all the ocean is hiding deep, deep down.

Everything that's waiting for you beneath the surface...

And everything that's waiting for you right at the top...

The Liberty Bell 7 has been on the ocean floor since the early '60s. What else could there be down that deep?

Uncomfortable yet?

Doing alright?

Feel sick?

A little shaky?

Palms a little sweaty?

You sure?

That's normal. The ocean is terrifying.

Simply terrifying.

Still with me?

Well, imagine being on this tiny, tiny boat:

Imagine being deep, deep down and finding an animal you never knew existed:

Or sitting at the edge of this deep, dark hole:

Terrified by all this? Well, you just might have thalassophobia.

When you enter the ocean you become the lowest on the food chain.

I was a surfer. I always hated to surf alone. I'd always get these thoughts about tsunamis, sharks, and sudden increases in the size of the surf, especially if it were already fairly big.

Taken into account that I scubadive for fun then no, I'm not afraid of the ocean.

And few of those shark schools look really neat. Wouldn't mind diving there.

The only thing in water that bothers me is seaweed touching me.
