Not always.. Lots of small municipal airports plenty close to the water. Check out aeroweather app. Free, I found it from using it in our heli operations and started using it for fishing. You can customize your home page with all your local airports. All airports report current conditions, including the little Podunk ones. More major airports have TAF forecast. I like seeing the raw data. Shows you wind, atm pressure, temp, RH, Vis and cloud deck.
