Very impressive boat handling and coordination with shore crew. You can see one of the shore crew toss the heaving line to the ferry crew about 1/4 of the way into the video, so they clearly know the drill.

For remote locations that depend primarily on ferry service, they can't simply cease operations when conditions are less-than-idyllic. As someone noted, the Greeks (and others) have been doing this kind of thing for generations, so it probably isn't that big a deal to them as it appears to those of us less accustomed to such things.
