By Kara Ladd, Goodhouse Keeping

The ocean covers more than 70% of the planet's surface, and we have only explored a mere 5% of that. There's so much more to learn about these mysterious waters, and World Oceans Day is the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the wildlife and spectacular reefs that live within them.

World Oceans Day occurs on June 8th every year, and we're celebrating its beauty with these gorgeous under-the-sea moments. See below for some of our favorite ocean pictures - they might even inspire your next family vacation!
