Deep sea minecraft DEFAULT

The ocean is an aquatic biome consisting of water. Oceans are the largest biome by area, covering anywhere around 25-33% of the surface area of the Overworld when factoring in all of its varieties and consist of a deep water source with the surface at an altitude of y=63 by default, which is counted as the "sea level" layer of the world.


Oceans are vast expanses of water, going from sea level all the way down to the ocean floor, which is at a depth of roughly Y=45. The seafloor is fairly hilly, featuring multiple peaks and valleys, and is mostly covered by a one-block layer of gravel, though some clay, dirt and sand patches may generate near the peaks. Ravines can occasionally generate on the ocean floor, forming underwater trenches. Some seafloor peaks may reach high enough to form islands on the surface of the ocean; these islands are typically small beaches surrounding a patch of a forest or plains. The seafloor is often covered with seagrass and kelp, with "forests" of kelp frequently reaching close to or even touching the water's surface. Fish, squid and dolphins frequently spawn within oceans. Shipwrecks and underwater ruins generate within all oceans, while deep ocean variants can occasionally generate ocean monuments. It is also possible for part of an ocean to freeze over into ice if it borders a snowy beach, snowy tundra or snowy taiga.

Survival in ocean biomes themselves is impractical due to all the water. A player who camps on an island in the ocean faces a rather difficult situation. Ocean biomes are quite vast; one might not find the mainland for hundreds or even thousands of blocks. This means that whatever resources found on an island might be all the player has if the player is unwilling or unable to venture out. See the island survival article for more information.

In Java Edition, the mob spawn rate for regular oceans is:

  1. ↑Spawn attempt succeeds only in slime chunks.

In Bedrock Edition:

  1. ↑Spawn attempt succeeds only in slime chunks.


Oceans come in nine different varieties in-game, including the base ocean and eight different variants. Both editions also have an unused "deep warm ocean" variant, while Bedrock Edition has an additional unused "legacy frozen ocean".

Deep Ocean[]

In the deep ocean variant, the ocean can exceed 30 blocks in depth, twice as deep as the standard ocean. The ground is mainly covered with gravel. Ocean monuments generate in deep oceans, meaning guardians and elder guardians can spawn there. Dolphins, cod, salmon‌[Bedrock Edition only] and squid spawn in these oceans as well. Underwater caves and ravines often generate here, forming underwater trenches. Exposed lava in these trenches occasionally turns into magma blocks, creating whirlpool bubble columns that can drag a player down. Tall seagrass also generates more frequently in deep oceans compared to shallower oceans.

Deep oceans use the same mob spawning chances as oceans.

Frozen Ocean[]

The frozen ocean has dark purple water at the surface. Like the standard and cold oceans, it has a gravel seabed, though the water's surface is mostly frozen. Neither seagrass nor kelp generates on the seafloor, leaving it entirely barren and reminiscent of pre-Update Aquatic oceans. Large icebergs made of snow blocks, packed ice and a bit of blue ice frequently generate on the surface, where rabbits,‌[Bedrock Edition only]polar bears and strays may spawn. Salmon, cod‌[Bedrock Edition only] and squid may spawn here as well and are the only aquatic mobs (other than drowned) that can.

Similarly to swamps, frozen oceans have varying temperatures across their landscapes, but have a more noticeable effect in that colder patches have snowfall and ice sheets, while warmer patches have rainfall (up to a certain height, similarly to mountains) and unfrozen water.

In Java Edition, frozen oceans (along with their deep variants) never generate directly bordering land. They always have a 32-block-wide border of the cold ocean around them should they generate close to any land. This border is often jagged and broken.

In Java Edition, frozen oceans use the same mob spawning chances as oceans for hostile and ambient categories. As for the others:

In Bedrock Edition, frozen oceans use the same mob spawning chances as oceans for water categories. As for the others:

  2. ↑80% of spawned rabbits are white and 20% are black and white.

Deep Frozen Ocean[]

The deep frozen ocean also contain ocean monuments and a deeper floor. Icebergs may still generate, but unlike normal frozen ocean, there isn't a layer of ice present at sea level.‌[Java Edition only]

Deep frozen oceans use the same mob spawning chances as frozen oceans.

Cold Ocean[]

The cold ocean uses a dark indigo water color at the surface. Like regular oceans and frozen oceans, its floor is made up mainly of gravel. Salmon, cod, squid and dolphins‌[Bedrock Edition only] are able to spawn in cold ocean biomes. The vegetaition in cold oceans also has less seagrass compared to other ocean variants.

In Java Edition, cold oceans use the same mob spawning chances as oceans for hostile and ambient categories. As for the others:

Deep Cold Ocean[]

The deep cold ocean is twice as deep, can generate ocean monuments and has higher amounts of tall seagrass.

Deep cold oceans use the same mob spawning chances as cold oceans.

Lukewarm Ocean[]

The lukewarm ocean has light blue water at the surface. Its floor is made of sand, with occasional patches of dirt, gravel and clay in shallower areas. Underwater ruins that generate in lukewarm and warm oceans are made of sandy materials, as opposed to the stony materials that make up ruins in colder oceans. Cod, salmon‌[Bedrock Edition only], tropical fish‌[Java Edition only] and pufferfish‌[Java Edition only] may spawn here, alongside the other aquatic mobs. This biome also has more seagrass and less kelp compared to colder ocean variants.

The Deep Ocean Biome is a biome that was released in 1.7 along with a host of others. It resembles an Ocean Biome, but has several unique features.


The bottom of the Deep Ocean, instead of being covered with Sand, Dirt and Clay, it is covered with Gravel. Also, true to its name, it is almost twice as deep as the normal Ocean Biome.


  • Sometimes Air pockets will spawn in Deep Ocean Biomes.
  • Due to the new map generation, an ocean can spawn next to a deep ocean, resembling oceans in the 1.6 and backwards updates.
  • As of Snapshot 14w25a, Ocean Monuments will spawn in Deep Ocean Biomes.

How to find an ocean monument in Minecraft

One of Minecraft's most intriguing generated structures is ocean monuments which are filled with goodies as well as guardians, making it a hostile mob unique to the locale.

Since ocean monuments are the sole source of sponge and one of the only sources of prismarine, they are a great find for Minecraft Survival Mode players. Although aggressive guardians can hamper efforts to snag these much-needed resources, they are far from the toughest mobs that can be taken down. The most difficult part about an ocean monument is finding it. Ocean biomes are massive in many Minecraft worlds, and characters in Survival Mode don't exactly have the best breathing abilities underwater, at least not without a few handy potions.

Minecraft: Locating an ocean monument

Though they are located in Minecraft's deep ocean biomes, finding an ocean monument can be tricky. Deep ocean biomes aren't small by any stretch of the imagination, and combing the depths of the sea can be a very tedious undertaking. However, thanks to explorer maps provided by cartographer villagers, pinpointing ocean monuments can be made much simpler. If players trade emeralds with villagers, they can pinpoint the monument's location on their next sea excursion.

Once Minecraft players find the monument's approximate location, potions for breathing underwater are a wise investment before venturing into the monument's depths. If players are able to get inside by using potions, they can proceed to use Minecraft blocks such as sponge to block off sections and drain the water around it. However, it is important to remember that the wet sponge blocks harvested within the monument will not absorb water until they are dried in a furnace. Regardless, not only does draining the monument assist with breathing, it can also incapacitate guardians causing them to flop around helplessly. Though guardians won't suffocate outside bodies of water, they will be unable to combat players or operate as they normally would.

Once the chambers are drained and the coast is clear of guardians, Minecraft players may reap the rewards of the ocean monument. Although these particular structures don't contain a loot chest, there is still plenty of bounty to be collected. From prismarines, to sponges, to sea lanterns and a little extra gold, ocean monuments have their own material loot even if the loot isn't housed in a chest like other structures. For players that enjoy achievement hunting, defeating an elder guardian will reward players with "The Deep End" achievement. If they also used an explorer's map to find the location, they'll additionally earn the "Treasure Hunter" achievement if they haven't acquired it already.

Deep Sea

The Brief

The concept behind this project was exploring the parallels of Deep Space and Deep Sea. Although Space is considered as mankind’s final frontier, even today much of the deep ocean is a mystery to us and host to creatures just as alien as those we might imagine on other planets. The human element of this build is the large structural complex – an underwater laboratory which studies these underwater mysteries.

The Build

From the depths of the never-ending ocean, from that fathomless world of infinite mystery and unearthly beauty which man has yet to discover – Deep Sea. This enormous underwater laboratory features a plethora of facilities and technologies, all tasked with the study of the many alien creatures the deep sea is host to.
