6'8" Draft in Belize

Hey there to all. As part of the planning process for the next step in the passage, part of what I am considering is heading for a time to Belize, but i am worried about the draft, I carry 6'8" and if thats just too much for crusing in Belize? I have the Rauscher guide, but its a bit dated, and thoughts would be much appreciated

Similar to the Bahamas, you can cruise Belize with deep draft but will be a bit restricted in where you can go. Unlike the Bahamas banks, there is deep water in most places between th cays. The Rauscher guide might be dated but the depths have not changed that much.
