I'm trying to create an image similar to this. Just a simple fluffy cloud.

enter image description here

But I'm struggling to find any tutorials for this.

I'm not sure that this is a complete answer, but maybe what I found will help you. I also wanted to make such clouds

For water you can use Ocean Modifier and shader with "Glass BSDF" to Surface output with "Volume Absorbtion" to Volume output

Edited: I found this in reccomendations. He creating clouds from metaballs and then adding displacement with voronoi texture and other textures, using "Principlied Volume" for volume absorbtion material.
