Sea monsters are really rare, horrifying freakish creatures with flippers, tentacles and pincers. They cannot move on land*, but are still dangerous to any dwarf that comes near them due to their enormous size.
Its nearly impossible to meet one on adventurer mode unless you swim around on evil oceans, but you'll probably have other things to worry about in such a place, like undead fish.
