Sound travels many times faster through water than air. The denser the material the faster the sound travels through it.

Sound travels faster through water because the liquid's molecules aren't floating as free as the gas. They are tighter. Also the liquid is denser.

Sound is a transverse wave. It travels by passing its disturbance to the neighbouring particle. In liquids the molecules are closely packed  whereas in air they are loosely packed and hence it travels faster in water than in air!

Sound will travel faster through air because water will slow the sound fast then air will : )
