The majority of admiralty and maritime law concerns with how the law is applied to navigable seas. “Navigable waters” often refers to oceans, sizable lakes, and rivers where commercial shipping is possible. Territorial waters and high seas are the subsequent divisions of “navigable waters” that follow. The high seas are farther distant from shore than territorial waters.
