Yes, there are a few in Pinellas County, but not the norm. 5.5 isn't too back but 7.5 gets tough, especially in low tide. There's some houses with longer docks that get you out into deep water.

It will take a lot of local knowledge in this area, and the whole west coast has shallow water issues. It's doable.

I had a house in Maderia Beach that would have been close.... a lot of sailboats in that neighborhood. Where I live now in the Maderia Beach area would not work. A lot of the canals, or coves have pretty shallow water.
