Is the Gulf of Mexico the Ocean?

If I am standing in the water at Galveston Beach, am I standing in the ocean?

    No, the Gulf of Mexico is a gulf.

    A gulf is a part of an ocean or a sea.

    The Gulf of Mexico is a deep inlet or an arm of the Atlantic Ocean.

    So, yes, if you are standing in water at Galveston beach you are standing in a part of an ocean.

    Nope, it does lead to the ocean, so in a way you're in the same water as the ocean.
