    That is not a ship but a hovercraft ... made for beach landings.
    The video is too short but it can crawl onto the beach too, it doesn't plow into the beach.

    Nobody panicked, nice way to pick up your girlfriend from the beach to go waterskiing, prolly not the first time this drill was performed there, ship wasn't blowing its horn either, just a day at the beach with a bonus view.

    I like the bit where it questions what the beechgoers were doing. THEY WERE SUNBATHING AND SWIMMING OF COURSE. What else?
