Expert Answer:

The ocean is blue due to absorption and scattering of light. Most of the longer wavelength of the light gets absorbed leaving behind mainly shorter wavelength for scattering. Red, yellow and green wavelength of the light gets absorbed and the remaining light we see is composed of blue and violet
