The water isn't blue, water is colorless. The blue is coming from the reflection of the sky just as the sea would be grey on a cloudy day.

it's just the reflection of the sky, it's practically colourless.

No chemicals, just light. The sea isn't blue it just mirrors the sky.

the sea reflects the color of the sky... but if the water quality is bad, they may look green, or dull

The sea is not blue, It's a reflection of blue light on the surface of the water. Google "Why is the ocean blue"

The sky isn't blue either
