5'''' vs 6''''4" draft cruising the islands

Hello

Is there a significant advantage in having a 5 ft draft over a 6''4" draft when cruising the islands generally.

I realize that it would be best to be more specific, but I cannot. Would really like to know if 6''4" is just much more limiting than 5 ft for trying to get to most of the places in the BVI, Bahama''s etc.

Thanks
