@barbiedole I never thought about that a ship might be way more comfortable. I still think I might freak out if I go to far out though.

I like looking at the sea from land but being in the sea is something else. Its just so scary being surrounded by water plus I can't swim soooooooo... yikes

I love the sea, but I'm very wary of its power. I know it's not something to mess around with. And the creatures can be quite scary too.

Hmm, I like sitting closer to the sea but not to trip on it. I once went on it by the local boat and I was very afraid because I don't know how to swim.

I love the sea but my inability to swim makes me afraid of the deep waters.

I would have to say I am afraid of the sea. I think it is one of the influential forces of nature we have on earth. I don't really care for what I can't see and the ocean is just that. It is beyond beautiful but with the fact that "I only dog paddle" doesn't help matters.

I had these nightmares when I was a kid that I am drowning in a sea. I was so much scared of it that I didn't close my eyes while washing my face in the bathroom or even during showers. I am now 36 and have overcome these fears, but sometimes the feeling comes back when I am in the showers. Although I have been to cruise and over there I enjoyed a lot.

Am totally afraid of the sea, no no. It is quite a good place but don't like the area at all.

I don't know why. But yes, I'm kind of afraid of the sea. Maybe because I can't see what's underwater or maybe I can't swim very well.

I love the sea. It is home to many sports like surfing,fishing and para-sailing. It is very fun to swim in and the only scary thing is the undertow. Otherwise it is a great place to hang out or spend time with friends. Snorkeling is also very beautiful you can see ocean life and things that you cant see on land. Also I can open my eyes in water so I am not so afraid of drowning.

I live in Mombasa which is right next to the ocean. The sea can be scary when the waves break the shores.

Kind of. :) I love the way the ocean looks and how it sounds. I've been to the shore of the Pacific Ocean--it's massive and beautiful!

Still, the idea of being way out on the water somewhere, too far to see any land, doesn't appeal to me at all. Yes, I can swim--in a swimming pool. And I've never much liked swimming in deeper than about six feet of water. If I can't easily touch the bottom and float back up within a few seconds... No thanks. :D

Of course, I am. There are many big sharks there. I don't even know how to swim!

There are some people who are afraid of going or staying long in the sea, are you one of them? Why?
In my view we are not filmier with the sea in our daily life. we are unable to absorb the cool waves easily.
In front of our eyes only sea and noting.

Am so so afraid of the seas, gosh. First i cant swim even in a small swimming pool. I have had a boat ride only once in a small dam, and trust me i was freaking out and i cant figure how my adventure in the sea would be. Also i think the creatures there just put me off and i would not want to go in there.
