Ah... Actually not.

As defined by the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, a countries' territorial waters, or territorial sea is a belt of coastal waters extending, at most, 12 nautical miles (22 km; 14 mi) from the baseline (usually the mean low-water mark) of a coastal state. The territorial sea is regarded as the countries' sovereign territory, although foreign ships (both military and civilian) are allowed innocent passage through it; this sovereignty also extends to the airspace over and seabed below. A countries' Exclusive Economic Zone extends 200 miles from it's baseline (the low water mark).

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
