Oeno Island atoll

There is a small atoll with an island in it in the south pacific, if you are familiar please with the island can you tell me if you are able to sail onto the atoll and if the water inside it is deep enough for a 5 foot draft, please help!

The satellite photo shows a channel on the North shore. Go in by dinghy and check it out then you can tell everyone the answer.
