SF Bay Sailors - Transiting the Bonita Channel?

Hey everyone

I am considering heading north from SF bay tomorrow, towards muir beach. The NOAA forecast is calling for:

NE WINDS 10 KT...WIND WAVES
3 FT IN THE MORNING...BECOMING 2 FT OR LESS. NW SWELL 8 TO 10 FT
AT 13 SECONDS.

I have transited the Bonita channel before, but it was calmer than tomorrow's forecast, and I'm leery of getting in the Channel if there's too much swell running.
Does anyone have experience with how much swell is too much for the Channel?
Thanks for your advice! The boat is a Catalina 30.
cheers
greg
