Water moccasin. They won't harm you unless you corner them. See link... http://ufwildlife.ifas.ufl.edu/water_moccasin_watersnake_comparison.shtml

It would be helpful to know exactly when and where you saw the snake. Water moccasins don't live all over the world and there is more than one gray snake species. I hate to frighten you even more but virtually all snakes can swim when they choose too as well.
