I don't know what you are plotting and I don't know what is the criterion for when you plot - I mean the logic with which you enter photon tracks into your histogram. For example, how you distinguish incident from reflected rays. We also don't know how exactly you've defined the water/air surface (smooth, rough etc. etc.) In any event, I suggest, if you want to understand the program, you start with a simple situation where you know exactly what you should be expecting - like a laser beam at a given angle to the surface. This beam should either be refracted out or reflected back with the same angle to the surface normal.
