Heimaey Island Overnight

Our second trip to Iceland is coming up in a couple of months - August 25 to September 13th. I'm thinking of reallocating one of our nights on the south coast to a night on Heimaey Island. As of this morning, accommodations are available. My question relates to the weather and the possibility that the ferry may be cancelled. In that case, short of double booking and the related cost, finding a last minute accommodation on the mainland may be tricky or impossible. Your thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

I would absolutely book it! Take your vehicle on the ferry. That time of year is not typical to have a cancelled ferry. We were there for a few days last summer and were glad that we finally made it there after quite a few trips.
