Sound waves travel far faster and far further through water than they do through air: roughly 1500m per second in seawater, compared to just 340m per second in air – more than four times faster. Sound is created by waves of vibration that pass through a medium, such as water or air. Because the atoms in liquids are more tightly packed than in gases, sound travels much faster in the ocean.

Which animal is the loudest in the world?
The blue whale, the largest animal ever known to exist on Earth, has an impressive call to go with its massive size. The call of a blue whale reaches 188 decibels – louder than a roaring jet engine's ear-piercing 140 decibels. They make pulses, groans, and moans that can be heard up to 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) away.
