When red light goes from air to water. What will be it's colour in water

In very pure water or in a bucket of tap water in the house, it will look same but
if you consider for oceans the red light will get absorbed.
All red, orange, yellow, green etc longer wavelength gets absorbed
and that is why most of the ocean appear blue.
