The deepest ocean in the world is the Pacific Ocean. Although the depth of the ocean varies in different parts, the deepest known part is the Mariana Trench. This can be found in the western part of the ocean, just off the southwest coast of Guam. With a depth of approximately 10,911 metres (35,797 ft.) below the surface of the sea, this is also the lowest and deepest point on planet Earth. This is also deeper than the height of the tallest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest.
As the Pacific Ocean covers almost half of the whole water surface of Earth, it's depth does vary in places. As such, the average depth has been measured to be about 4,280 metres (14,000 ft.) deep. Due to this great depth, when natural disasters, such as earthquakes and tsunamis break out in the ocean, the water has been reported to have reached speeds of up to 750 kilometres an hour. This is in fact nearly the same speed that can be reached by a jet airplane travelling through the air.
The Pacific is such a vast space that it is greater than all the land mass on the Earth. Although the name "Pacific" means 'peaceful', it is really quite ironic as this is the most active ocean in the world. This is due to almost all of the ocean's rim and basin being covered with volcanoes and areas prone to earthquakes.

If you look at google earth from the bottom. Antarctica you will see that all the oceans are really one big ocean. The deepest part is the Marianas Trench in the western Pacific
about 11,000 metres down. (36,000 feet), is the lowest spot on Earth.  

It was found during a sonar sea-floor mapping project carried out in 1997 and 2001 by scientists from Hawaii, US.

The deepest ocean in the entire world is the Pacific Ocean, which has on average a depth in the region of 13,215 feet. Although we do not know just how deep some parts are, scientists think that the deepest part known to mankind is 36,198 feet and this is actually found in the Mariana Trench in the Mariana Islands.
