Maybe this one:
  1. start with blank picture, bigger than the tile you would like
  2. Filter > Render > Lava; choose gradient Blue-green
  3. rotate the picture, so that water appears to be horizontal
  4. crop the picture, so that you get a rectangle
  5. Filter > Map > Make seamless
  6. test it with Filter > Map > Tile... to a size at least 3-4x greater than your tile on each side
  7. save the small picture, this is your tille.
If you like this pattern, but don't like the colors, you can copy the blue-green gradient and change the copy with gradient editor. How to use gradient editor, you can see on the page http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/gimp-gradient-dialog.html#gimp-gradient-editor-dialog.
