All of these waves have something in common they are all oscillations that carry energy from one place to another.
The electromagnetic waves don't need a medium to transfer the energy, but The water waves need a medium to transfer energy.
Result:
The electromagnetic waves don't need a medium to transfer the energy, but The water waves need a medium to transfer energy.
