They use the tenders that were aboard the SS Norway. These are 450 passenger boats that are quite large and easy to enter and exit. Even if they used the ship's tenders, they always have crew at the entrance to the boat to assist passengers. They even put people who use walkers and wheelchairs in them. You'll be fine.

Normally, if it is super windy and high waves, they will not go, but on a normal day, they have people to help you step on the tender boat and off, plus a hand rail to assist you. Most likely, you will not have any problems, go and enjoy the beach day.

Yes, they help out.

I have a fairly bad balance problem and I have never had a problem with tenders. You will do just fine. As others have said they will assist you if needed, even if it's just extending a hand to steady you.

Take care and have fun.
Mike
