The most famous part of the novel, the battle against the school of giant squid, begins when a crewman opens the hatch of the boat and gets caught by one of the monsters. As h…e is being pulled away by the tentacle that has grabbed him, he yells "Help!" in French. At the beginning of the next chapter, concerning the battle, Aronnax states that: "To convey such sights, one would take the pen of our most famous poet, Victor Hugo, author of The Toilers of the Sea". The Toilers of the Sea also contains an episode where a worker fights a giant octopus, wherein the octopus symbolizes the Industrial Revolution. It is probable that Verne borrowed the symbol, but used it to allude to the Revolutions of 1848 as well, in that the first man to stand against the "monster" and the first to be defeated by it is a Frenchman. In his official report on the situation with the monster, Aronnax offers various reasons why it is possible that a giant narwhal may exciting the year 1868, rumors of a sea monster attacking ships in the Pacific Ocean have created apprehension and fear among sailors, disrupting the shipping lanes. Prof. Pierre M. Aronnax and his assistant, Conseil, are on their way to Saigon but get stuck in San Francisco by the halting of ships. The US government invites Aronnax onto an expedition to either prove or disprove the monster's existence. One of their fellow crew is the cocky master harpooner Ned Land. the monster is scary. But it is a good book and very excellent movie. The oceans during the late 1860-92s are no longer safe; many ships have been lost. Sailors have returned to port with stories of a vicious narwhal (a giant whale with a long horn) which sinks their ships. A naturalist, Professor (Pierre) Aronnax, his assistant, Conseil, and a professional whaler, Ned Land, join an US expedition which attempts to unravel the mystery

Well you see, it's really a big math equation. A league is how far a roman army could travel in one day, about 50 miles. So now multiply 1 league/50 miles by 20,000. 50 time…s 20,000=1,000,000 So if you look it's impossible because you can't go 1,000,000 miles below the surface of the ocean. Most of our oceans only go down 1 mile or less. I'm sure the deepest of our ocean is 7-12 miles deep. I don't know if I'm right on everything, but don't judge me, I'm only eleven.

20,000 leagues is equal to about 80,000 km. One league equals 3 statute miles so we could also say it is about 50,000 statute miles. Of course Twenty Thousand Leagues Under th…e Sea is a novel by Jules Verne.
A league was equal to roughly 3 miles, so 20000 leagues would be about 60,000 miles.
if a league is in fact 3.4 miles then 20,000 leagues would be 68,000 miles and it would be hard to be that deep in the ocean (at least on our planet which is only 8,000 miles …in diameter). So where did the title of "20,000 leagues under the sea" come from?
1 league is close to 5.55 km, so 20,000 leagues is close to 111,000 km
If you mean the captain of the Nautilus it is Captain Nemo. The narrator was Pierre Arronax.
