No, Wakanda has always been landlocked- pretty much right in the middle of Africa. Even during the war with Atlantis. The Atlanteans fired nukes at Wakanda, and T'challa diverted them to Kiber Island, which was (and I guess still is) a Wakandan protecterate. So the only coastline they own is off Kiber Island.

My memory's fuzzy, but didn't soldiers from Atlantis get into Wakanda without airships during the arc with Namor, Magneto et all under Priest?
