Clearest water

Last updated: December 13, 2017 at 4:45 am

80 m (262 ft) or the approximate visibility of distilled water. A few locations are claimed to equal the visibility of distilled water, including the Weddell Sea (Antarctica), New Zealand’s Blue Lake, and the Silfra Fissure in Iceland. Claims of visibility surpassing 80 metres anywhere are likely overstated. However, the Weddell Sea has the added distinction of being composed of seawater that is teeming with life, including plankton.
