NKJV - 1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.

Yes, they are the same beast. The beast rises from the bottomless pit in Rev 11:7 because that is where he actually originates from. In Rev 13:1 he is seen as a human being would see him, as rising from the sea, after he has already risen from the bottomless pit. It should be understood that the 10-horned beast is an image of a highly organized group of demons and demonic angels who are able to successfully deceive and possess human beings into doing what they desire.
