The passage-way must have been wide in order to allow 2 million people with their flocks and herds to walk through. This was certainly a super-natural act, although God used natural forces.

The Israelites knew the Lord had saved them by His mighty power and they worshiped Him and trusted Him and His servant Moses (v. 31). That which was salvation for Israel became condemnation to Egypt. As the Egyptians pursued after Israel God simply allowed the Red Sea to close down upon them and Pharaoh’s army drowned.
Just as God delivered His people from Egypt He wants to deliver me from my bondage of sin. I am assured of victory as I allow Him to take control.
