Sargasso Sea

The region (actually in the horse latitudes) of the North Atlantic Ocean to the east and south of the Gulf Stream system.

This is a region of convergence of the surface waters, and is characterized by clear, warm water, a deep blue color, and large quantities of floating sargassum or "gulf weed."
