No. It is up to the captain to cancel if he decides it is unsafe. If you read my review, it was not ideal conditions when we went on the tour to Star Island (the weather was overcast with light rain). Unfortunately, the water became really choppy on the return trip and some of the passengers (me included) went flying. I would not purchase in advance if at all possible.
