If I try fighting her in the poison, I get slowed and take damage over time; If I hide to lure her back on land, she regains all of her posture. The boss is rewarded for being stupid and standing in the poison.

The charged spear can be used to rush her down and pull her back to you. Deals high poise damage and lets you stand close for a sword trade. just beware of her grab and its very, very doable and fast
If you kill the guardian ape first, he'll head down here and smash up the place, so they'll only be two canon wielders around the boss, both of which can be stealth killed before she notices you.

I'm really surprised this isn't on this page, unless I missed it
This boss is an insult to fun.
