I second the scopalmine patch. My boyfriend gets sick on boats even in good weather, and nothing else had worked very well (he tried bands and various meds)...but we spent a full week on a 16-passanger boat and he was totally fine with that patch.

I like to stay at the front or sides of the boat (if the front is inaccessible) That's the best viewing position for me, scanning the horizon. I can't breathe diesel fumes, so I stay away from the back fumes. When on smaller boats on pelagic birding trips, I do not like the overheated cabins, where I can't see the horizon line.  On a medium-sized ship, like the Lindblad "Explorer", I never had any issues. 

Sounds like fun!

Thanks for posting this Britt. 

As I mentioned on the Facebook page, the application process was smooth and surprisingly enjoyable. Even with the short turnaround time, do consider applying, GNSI folks! I'll be the Artist-at-Sea on the four-week voyage from Honolulu to Papa‘ete which precedes the two-week cruise mentioned here. 

Does anyone have suggestions for managing seasickness? I'm all ears! 

Mahalo,
Michelle


Carry on, beetle.
