I am found in the sea and on land but I do not walk or swim.
I travel by foot but I am toeless.

Who/What am I

The answer is probably

A snail


I am found in the sea and on land but I do not walk or swim.

There are normal snails, and also sea snails, but snails neither walk nor swim.

I travel by foot but I am toeless.

Snails have one big foot but no toes

  • $\begingroup$ I was thinking either waves or the tide. They go out to see and they come onto land, and they are often measured by the foot $\endgroup$ Aug 19, 2020 at 16:00
  • $\begingroup$ @AnthonyIngram-Westover also I nice thought! Probably a bit of a stretch on the foot part though $\endgroup$ Aug 19, 2020 at 16:05

Beastly Gerbil's answer is most likely correct, but I was thinking:

Algae

I am found in the sea and on land but I do not walk or swim.

Contrary to popular belief, algae can be found on land, and they most certainly don't walk or swim.

I travel by foot but I am toeless.

This is a reference to the anchors that many algae possess, which is sometimes called a "foot".
