Perhaps simply to scan/catalogue/investigate Nibiru's sea life while Kirk and McCoy, and Spock, Uhura and Sulu carried out their missions? I imagine that while an aquashuttle could do the job, the Enterprise herself could scan the living shit out of every marine lifeform in that hemisphere at once.
But don't you take a huge risk of a native or a group of natives seeing it when it's either splashing-down or taking back off?
Well, on Earth, the ocean is pretty big. There are major portions where no one would ever see a massive ship go into the water or leave. Given that the clip shows a primitive race, they could do it a mile out without issue.
