Hamilton Island ferry

How reliable is the ferry from Shute Harbour to Hamilton Island airport.I am thinking of staying at Airlie beach and catching a ferry to Hamilton Island on the morning of the flight 5th April 2015 (Easter Day). Has the ferry ever had to be cancelled due to bad weather ect.

Thanks for help

I was on Hamilton Island once when both the ferries and the flights were cancelled due to fog - plenty of people stuck either on the island or the mainland. But this is a very are occurrence, and in that case the ferries got going before the flights did.
