Ferry service from Stone Town to Dar reliable?

We are traveling from Stone Town to Dar on Sunday March 18 and wanting to travel via ferry. Is the ferry service reliable in leaving so we make our international flight? Is one company more reliable than others? Does weather often delay the ferries? Thank you for your help.

I think to determine if taking the ferry is worth the money saved (ie economical), each traveler needs to put a value on their time. Figure out how much money would be saved taking the ferry. Figure out how much extra time is used with the ferry (plus taxi) and then divide the amount saved by the number of extra hours spent. Then ask yourself if your time in Tanzania (after spending $1000+ to get there) is worth more or less than the $x dollars saved per hour. I think for nearly everyone, the answer becomes obvious.
