Shallowest water in the ocean

Where can I stand on the ocean floor, with my head above water?

Some parts of the ocean are deep and others are not so deep. Are there any places where the water is just a few feet deep, but you are otherwise miles (perhaps hundreds of miles) from land? I'll accept islands that disappear during high tide (I assume there are some), but I'd like answers where there is never dry land.
I just like the idea of a boat stopping off in the middle of the ocean and being able to jump down and wade in the water, even though the nearest land is miles away.
