    Atlantic at 0-1 years, I live in Cornwall, only about 15 miles from the south coast, 30 from the north.
    I saw the Indian at 8 years old when visiting family in South Africa (never been back since although I'd love to go again one day) and if we're including seas I saw the Mediterranean first at 13 from Venice- I think, I was in Italy at 10 but I "only" went to Florence and Rome so I can't remember whether or not I saw the sea while travelling.

    I've not seen any of the others so far.

    I may have seen the Baltic sea as a toddler. Didn't see anything bigger than that until we went to Mallorca when I was four and I saw the Mediterranean. Northern sea in Denmark at age 10, and Atlantic when I went to the US at age 21. Will be seeing the Pacific this fall at 29.
