Calories burned walking vs. walking in water

I have knee problems and walk daily for an hour in chest-high salt water, but I am unsure how to log this, vis-a-vis calories burned.  I'd appreciate any help out there.  Thanks.

Hi there!

Walking in salt water would consume approximately 1.85 times the number of calories consumed while walking on land, which is slightly less than jogging.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
