What is stinging me in the Gulf of Mexico?

I am currently on vacation in the Gulf of Mexico and me and my family keep getting stung by something. The stings don’t hurt as bad as a jellyfish or a bumble bee, but they are extremely annoying. They itch and last for about 20 minuets.

    On the beaches, likely sand fleas. Biting flies are around. Sea lice are aquatic in the water.

    Hard to say without catching a culprit in the act.

    in the water or or the beach? Sand fleas on sand. Also, jellyfish young (larvae) you cant really see.

    It wasn't me if that's what you're implying
