What does John 6:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 6:17

And entered into a ship
In which they came, and was waiting for them; or into another:

and went over the sea towards Capernaum;
steered their course from Bethsaida, where they took shipping over the sea of Galilee; at least over one part of it, a creek or bay of it, as they intended, towards the city of Capernaum, which lay over against Bethsaida:

and it was now dark;
quite night, which made their voyage more uncomfortable, especially as it afterwards was tempestuous: but the worst of all was,

and Jesus was not come to them;
as they expected, and therefore were obliged to set sail and go without him.
