I mentioned tides early on, but this is an assumption that we are in the ocean. It could be a large salt lake. Some of the clues are ambiguous like that..the light in the distance isn't necessarily an ocean ship; the light surf is more lake like than ocean. The small flat sand island indicates shallow water rather than deep ocean.
Simply the lack of tides would indicate a lake and be useful information.
