It wasn't that he was against both, but he was not really in the mood to swim. The most that he did when he was near the sea was either float to somewhere quiet, think, and try not to drift to far away from a place where his could no longer touch the ground and walk along the shore listening to the sound of waves; he has only been to the beach twice before the new world and since the new world he has only been to three proper beaches, but again none of those places really made him feel excited about the sea; they were nice but from personal taste alone he didn't like to do much else in beaches since he was kind of a shut in. At the same time he felt like she wanted to offer her to teach him how to swim again. In spite of the good will she was offering he'd rather just relax later after a bit of work.
