1. I guess it is high tide so the water reaches the cliff.
Well, there is a constant horizontal speed, call it u=13 m/s
so
13 t = 60 (that is a serious cliff !)
t = 60/13 = 4.615 seconds falling
well
h = Hi + Vi t - 4.9 t^2
Hi is what we want
Vi is initial vertical speed up = 0
4.9 = g/2
h = 0, bleak ocean height
0 = Hi + 0 - 4.9 t^2
Hi = 104 meters, yikes
