Fukuoka To Busan by Beetle Fast Ferry

Hello fellow TA,

We are hoping to travel from Fukuoka to Busan on the Beetle Ferry in late February 2014. I've read that if the seas are rough the ferry will turn back? What I'd like to find out is what are the seas like around the end of February. I know it is winter so am wondering if we should chance it or should we fly to Busan to be on the safe side? Plus if we decide to chance the Ferry across when can we buy the tickets for the crossing?

Any help would be a great help. Thank you in advance.

Not sure what the seas will be like. I had trouble trying to book the beelte online so when I traveled between Fukuoka and Busen, I flew Air Busan who are a good airline. It was about $30 cheaper then the beetle and only takes about 30 min.
