Who was the first European to reach the Pacific Ocean coming from the Atlantic Ocean?
Answer Ferdinand Magellan
Magellan arrived at what he called the "peaceful sea." Europeans call it the "Pacific" because of this. Balboa led the first expedition to find the Ocean, but he saw it from Panama, while Magellan sailed on it around South America.
