If you have access to Maya Fluid, try to use ocean shader.

This ocean shader maybe is what you are looking for, not just as shader you should be able to simulate wave, wake and foam emission etc.

Take a look at some result at alias wavefront web site gallery.

Best regards,

maya comes with an ocean texture that is great for bump maps or displacement maps. plus it's procedural. I would have to agree with the post before me though, you should really use the ocean shader. The materials ,textures are right on and you don't have to do anything.

Well the fluid fx oceans are pretty darn good, if you can I'd go with those, i doubt you'd make something better off the top of your head, and even if you did is it worth the time?

Messing around with bump maps and stuff is the domain of the poors suckers who use lightwave or something and don't have any FluidFX or Arete plugins;p
