The sky is just grey reflecting blue again i think..

The impedance of the stratosphere absorbs a lot of light from the blue spectrum giving it a blue appearance, it is actually clear as you can see at night when you can easily distinguish the stars in the sky.
The water of the sea itself is mostly a clear liquied but with a high refractive and reflective constitution, there are some elements of non water particles in the sea which when stirred by the currents do give the sea a tinge of colour, however, the majority of the sea's colour is actually reflection of the overhead sky colouring. Where this is blue a blue colouring is added to the sea's colour and clounds cast a grey reflection.
Due to the refraction of light by the water ( place a straight rod into a bucket of water and see the 'bend') and the interference particles as you descend into the depths the available light has been dispersed leaving little or no penetrating light particles.
