If they are placed with the view of impacting humanity in various universes, then and oceanic portal would seem counter-intuitive since the chances of being discovered would be more problematic, if not completely non-existant.

Can't really argue with that, although the books themselves make a place for sentients other than humans, are decidedly homocentric in thrust and emphasis.
