Naples FL and Gordon Pass depth

Does any have current depth info on Gordon Pass going into Naples FL bay? I have heard that the outer section (toward Gulf) is less than five feet of depth. My boat drafts 5.5 feet, so it could be a problem. I also found a recent (Jan 2019) article in the Naples paper that the US COE has postponed dredging the pass.

Thanks for your input!

Came into the pass on 12/27/18 and noticed both G1 and R2 buoys south of where they should be located with G1 in the center of what should have been the channel. I observed outbound vessels leaving the pass with G1 on their PORT (opposite side). Found myself in 5' of water in the center of G1 & R2. I spoke with Sean from Tow Boat US. He came out personally on 12/28/18 and ran both sides of G1. He confirmed that both G1 and R2 drifted off position to the south. He confirmed there was deep water on both sides G1 and advised to stay close to G1 (either side) when entering or exiting the pass.
