Coastal Vs. Blue water

At the risk of sounding really dumb, at what point do you go from coastal to blue water?
Is it crossing the gulf stream to the Bahamas
or or is it going out side of the Caribbean or what? In a couple of years my wife and I are hoping to buy a comfortable shoal draft live-a-board 40'' to 45''. Our plans are to stay in the islands and along the coast of central America. We have limited sailboat experience (ex commercial fishing powerboaters) but have chartered and are taking lessons.
Thanks for any input.
