John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 6:16

And when even was [now] come
The last of the evenings, when night was coming on; for the first of the evenings took place before they sat down to eat, when the above miracle was wrought; see ( Matthew 14:15 Matthew 14:23 ) .

His disciples went down unto the sea;
of Galilee, or Tiberias, to the sea side; and this was by the order, and even constraint of Christ, who would have them go before him, that he might be clear of the multitude, and have an opportunity for solitary prayer, (See Gill on Matthew 14:22) (See Gill on Mark 6:45).
