Examples of good sailing dinghys for shallow areas?

I'm looking for examples of boats so I can place wanted ads in my local classifieds. I'll be sailing in the lower Laguna Madre, around South Padre Island, Tx. The water is pretty shallow in some areas, and I've been told to try to get a cat if I can. Average water depth according to an article I found was 2.5 ft...BUT, I know there is a lot of area there with 3-5' areas, just as there are the 1-2' areas.

Here's the catch though. I need something that I can take out my family on. So it'll need to behave when I need to it.

I also need it to be easily setup by one person and be beach launchable. Being easily setup by one is mandatory. And max capacity would be 2 adults and 2 children.

Thanks guys.
