Now, here's your chance to see what it's like to swim deep under those waves.
Jared Dornak posted incredible video of an underwater adventure in Stewart Beach, giving us a first look at what Galveston is like when its typically muddy, sediment-rich waters are replaced with the clearer sort.
Dornak said he captured the images with his GoPro camera. The blue waters glow under the sunlight as Jared swims deeper under the sea. It is a sight you have to see for yourself.
"Usually when it's clear, it's green water like a lake, but this time it was blue and it felt like you were in an aquarium," Dornak said.
