It really is not a Myth that many seamen actually fear water and cannot swim yet spend their whole lives on Ship! :-). So don't let that stop you from joining either unless you plan on trying to become a Navy Seal. Then you would have to do all kinds of extreme things!.
As Deana said; there are lots of jobs in both where you wouldn't even be on a Ship. Marines generally more Land based, unless your unit gets assigned to preform Security on Board a Ship. So suggest you check both out also and then see which fits you better. Good luck!!

Well it really depends on what you want to do (as a job) while in the service, there are plenty of jobs in all branches that you will never be on a boat or have to do anything in the water, but without knowing what you are interested in it's hard to give advice. The best thing I can tell you is go through the available programs available in each branch and see what interests you the most :)

I agree fully. Talk to the recruiter and get ideas and pamphlets

@makalaja, don't give up! Keep going to different recruitment stations, find out if there is someone in your school (still in school?) to help you out.
As to not wanting to go into combat?? Hmmm, as of right now that probably won't be hard since we are pulling back troops from most War zones , but thats not a sure thing.

You hate water but you don't consider the army? You only consider the ones that are most involved in water
