How Deep is the Ocean

Well, around here Galveston is pretty shallow compared to like, Chorpus Christi. It's amazing how the water reflects color. Every angle seems like another value, another hue and chroma changes if the water is tilted one way or another. Lots of fun to paint. So how deep is it around here. On average it gets about 5-7feet to the normal surf zone then can drop off to 10-11feet and more after that which you see the bluer water.
