How do marine mammals get water?

They don't, their systems are adapted to deal with their environment, they obtain most of their water through their food, and extra water is actually produced by digesting their food but their systems are set up to deal with the extra salt they may injest/drink

They just draw water into their mouths and filter out the salt.
