The definitions are as follows:
If you are wearing rubber farm boots you are shallow water.
If you are wearing hip waders you are Near coastal.
If you are wearing chest waders you are Coastal.
And if you on a boat and out of sight of land you are ocean.

So by the above, if you can get out of your boat and wade ashore you are either near coastal or coastal.
