Wikipedia has more on Thalassophobia
Thalassophobia (from Greek thalassa, "sea") is the fear of the sea or being in the ocean. In addition to fearing large bodies of water, they may often fear the vast emptiness of the sea, and of distance from land. Thalassophobes may also be afraid of encountering sea creatures rather than the sea itself.
