The Battle of Leyte Gulf was the largest naval engagement of the Second World War as well as the most decisive.

"On October 23, 1944, the Japanese had gone into the Philippine waters as the world's third greatest naval power. By October 26, that same power had been decisively reduced to what one historian later called a 'fishpond fleet.'"

Given the naval weaponry that exists in the digital age, it is not likely that opposing navies will ever again have need to come within visible range of one another.
