Creature — Octopus
Sealock Monster can't attack unless defending player controls an Island.
: Monstrosity 3. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put three +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
When Sealock Monster becomes monstrous, target land becomes an Island in addition to its other types.

Personally i'd get rid of: Cloud Manta, Deep-Sea Terror, Deepglow Skate, Boundless Realms, Farseek, Genesis Storm, Nissa's Renewal, Skyshroud Claim, Giant Growth, Glissa's Scorn, Naturalize, Pulse of Murasa, Sweep Away
and replace with things like: Hedron Crab, Tidal Kraken, Serpent of the Endless Sea , Kraken of the Straits, Isleback Spawn, Grozoth, Sealock Monster, Stormsurge Kraken, Benthic Behemoth, Breaching Leviathan, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Dormant Gomazoa, Broken Bond

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is about the best ramp mono blue has. So many Sol Rings...

Looks good, I just find that it feels very susceptible to early aggro, especially once you invest your mana in a big creature only to get it blown up by removal. I feel like you can include some thematic sea creatures like Chasm Skulker, Reef Worm, Sealock Monster, Sand Squid etc.

Despite the higher mana cost of Sealock Monster, it seems like it's going to work much better for you. In a four-player game, it's likely that someone will be playing blue--and thus have islands--but if not, you'll have a chance to gift somebody with their very own island when you use its monstrous ability. I see Sealock Monster fitting in here much better than Thing in the Ice Flip.

Hi mushtard! I really like this deck list you have. I also have a Thassa, God of the Sea deck that looks almost like it! If I were to make some changes, I would take out any underwhelming cards like Thassa's Emissary & Sealock Monster for more impactful spells like Cyclonic Rift, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, & Pearl Lake Ancient. I'm also very unsure about the new Octopus Umbra. It's very flavorful, sure, but in a deck where your creatures are already big and scary it may not be that useful. I'll need to play with that more... If you ever want to take a look at my Thassa, God of the Sea deck and use it as a reference, you're more than welcome to do so anytime!

Sealock Monster ensures inkwell can work with no blockers aside from stormtide

Lastly, it does seem like you have a few too many creatures with such a high converted mana cost. Having too many 7-9 drop creatures could mean you just get those in your hand and can't play them until later in the game, by which time you could just be dead already by faster, more aggressive decks. This still applies even if you intend to keep this as a casual/kitchen table magic type of deck, as even other decks that fit that description can often have cheaper, more efficient, and deadly creatures. So, my advice is to pick a good handful of bigger creatures, and scrap the rest in favor of cards I mentioned.
I like the two copies of Simic Sky Swallower and Inkwell Leviathan since they have trample and shroud, so they're doing something for all that mana that's somewhat worth it. But having four copies of Deep-Sea Kraken, the Sealock Monster and Shipbreaker Kraken, doesn't seem necessary.
