The color of sea water is attributed to the sky’s color. It is a reflection of the sky. This is neither true nor completely wrong. You see, the sky’s color is reflected in the water but, the water has its own color too. Open water bodies reflect light and their color changes accordingly. There are lakes that are green and pink!

The deeper you go into the water, bluer it will be. When you go for deep sea diving, you can only see the blue color of water. It is because water absorbs light and shows its reflection. Even pure water is blue in color. You may not see it in a glass of water, but as its thickness and depth increases, the water is visibly bluer. If the water is not blue, it means that there are some impurities present.
