Do a search of these forums, there’s tons of info on this.

To give you some more hints:

Caronte ( published a very realistic water movie.
Myself ( did some interesting water - at least I was told it was nice - in another animation you can find on my site.


If you need simulated waves, check out my script here:

It also includes a pretty decent ocean shader (material + textures) which could be easily adapted for more of a shallow-water look.
