The game is full of adventures and explores work but if you think that it only has mysterious on the land and not in the oceans then you are somewhere not aware of the possibilities inside of the water.

There is a lot to explore but the method of exploration on and inside the water is a little tricky and hard because there is a lot of dangerous mobs inside of water and you can't even breathe at that place also.

And don't forget about traveling over the ocean. Oceans are huge and deep and traveling through them is not easy but it is possible.

Do you know how we travel through the oceans and lakes in the real world?
