Because of the ocean or water in general, the light reflects the blue water to the sky creating a blue sky!
That about sums it up.

Sunlight is made up of all the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The gas molecules in the atmosphere interact with the sunlight before the light reaches our eyes.The gas molecules in the atmosphere scatter the higher-energy blue portion of the sunlight more than they scatter the lower-energy red portion of the sunlight . The Sun appears reddish-yellow and the sky surrounding the Sun is colored by the scattered blue waves.

The sunlight reflects the water in the sky. It's that simple.
