I thought of this last night. I think I covered most of the big ones and a few lesser known ones also. If you put "other" please make sure you don't mention one that has ships or sailing in the title otherwise it could get a bit ridiculous. Try to stay as close to ocean/sea as possible.

I went with Nektar but Myriad's "Sea Of The Sinking Sun", Jean Luc Ponty's "Enigmatic Ocean" or Secret Oyster's "Sea Son" would all be right there too.

I totally forgot Secret Oyster's Sea Son. I thought of it initially but forgot to add it to the rough list. My bad.

Topographic Oceans is a top 3'er for me, so I went with that one pretty easily. 

Some other worthy mentions (prog or not):

Deluge Grander - Oceanarium
High Tide - Sea Shanties
Sea Level - Sea Level

And if you wanted to a bit more liberal with the scope of ocean-themed titles, you could always throw in Mediterranean Tales (Across The Waters) by Triumvirat for good measure.

I love Tales---not perfect but---it's a great powerful piece of prog rock.

Sea Shanties by High Tide is another one I thought of but forgot to add it to the list.

From this list I pick Moving Waves.

I could pick Deluge Grander's Oceanarium as well. Discipline and Eloy are also pretty good.

Lots of great options (including Black Sea - how I love XTC) but my favorite record of all time is Tales From Topographic Oceans...

Cardiacs - note to myself: Gotta listen to Primus more.

I also forgot "an ocean of rocks" by Octopus which I also meant to add.

I have it on vinyl somewhere. I recommend it to fans of mid 70's Pink Floyd.

Of these, XTC's Black Sea because, well, XTC. Maybe not prog, but, you know, XTC.

After that Cardiacs and Yes's Tales.

Other non-prog: Echo and the Bunnymen's Ocean Rain is also a damned fine album of the sea.

It's not an album, but I've been listening to "Oceancloud" off of "Marbles" and can't help thinking this is Marillion's best song. Sorry to go off-topic, sort of.
Among the selections here, I go with Eloy followed very closely by Focus, then Jade Warrior, Nektar and Yes. Yes has my favorite song of all these groups, "Revealing Science of God," but the rest of the album is hits and misses, often in the same song. IMHO.

Haven't heard nearly all of these. Went with Nektar from the ones I know.  Missed Ocean Gypsy/Sounds of the Sea, both by Renaissance.

I'm surprised at how far ahead Tales is, honestly! I just assumed everyone hated that record.

I donīt hate any Yes records, if I remember right I put Tales somewhere in the middle when ranking Yes-albums in the other thread. First album is almost as great as the Yes Album & Fragile, but second really not.

Tales has grown .. forum wise over the years in terms of love and respect..  you weren't here on this site when it was truly hated forum wise.  I think the turning point was my review hahah which pointed out why haters of the album were f**king idiots
