JS,
We made that trip last summer but stayed outside both ways, We have a 56 foot air draft, The pass going into the bay is all but closed off on the bay side.
stay as close to the range markers as you can I mean close enough to almost touch them. The bay is really shallow so you have to be careful.
All of the marinas there are also very shallow we ended up going to three differnt ones trying to find a slip deep enough for the boat ,we draw almost six feet, And still ended up touching in the slip we did take. I suggest you call ahead.
This info is a year old so it may be completely different by now.
It is a nice place to hang out. Eat at verandes if you get a chance its a little pricey but the food is excellant.

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
