    Yes.
    Go and look at the reflection of clouds in a pond or lake.

    Well, if you were underwater in a swimming pool, would you hear sounds from above?

    A reflected wave has the same properties as the incident wave.

    Anytime you have a boundary between two mediums(like the surface of water), wave will reflect off it. Thus sound in the air will reflect off the surface of the water and sound in the water will reflect off of the surface also.
