All over the world, the advances in miniaturization of cameras has allowed placement of those cameras so that there are literally eyes on the ocean 24 hours each day.  These web cams are not only at coastal locations, but on research vessels, in aquariums, and other ocean-related places. Check the web cams below to get a real-time view of your ocean.
