What would you like to do?
the pacific and Atlantic ocean or not connected because the central America blocks it.... The Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans! +++ Wrong! They ARE connected naturally, past the Southern tip of South America, and over the North Pole, whose ice-cap is floating ice, not land. They are separate oceans only because we choose to name them as such for convenience. The seas of the world are all one, albeit with their own circulations etc.

The Watson Bradley canal
The Panama Canal is the name of the canal connecting to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans! The Panama Canal joins them.
It is the Panama Canal - with this oddity about the canal traffic - East to West travel moves West to East! Also Man-made is the Arctic North West Passage.
The Northwest Passage.
I think it is the Panama Canal.
The Strait of Magellan
That would be the Panama Canal.
There are none. The closest would be the Panama Canal.

How big is it if you connect the Indian Ocean the Atlantic Ocean the Pacific Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea?
Indian Ocean = 73,556,000 km 2 . Atlantic Ocean = 106,400,000 km 2 . Pacific Ocean = 165,250,000 km 2 . Mediterranean Sea = 2,500,000 km 2 . TOTAL = 347,706,000 km 2 … That doesn't include the Arctic Ocean or the Southern Ocean.
Traditionally, the Straits of Magellan in far south America was considered the only natural connection, but falling sea ice levels may establish a navigable year-round connect…ion via the Arctic Ocean soon, and the Antarctic Ocean has long provided a connection that is navigable at least seasonally navigable. By far the most commercially important connection, however, is the artificial Panama Canal.
