If planning on using a scopolamine patch, I recommend getting one ahead of time and trying it. I got a scrip for travel in SouthAmerican (twisted, narrow, potholed dirt roads for hours on end). I put on a patch the night before. Got up briefly in the middle of the night and felt slightly lightheaded but didn’t think too much of it (thought it was because I was tired). When I got up at about 6 AM, I was so high I couldn’t walk a straight line. And really nauseous. I removed the patch immediately, and it took about 6 hours for it to clear out of my system. I had really hoped it would work for me, as I’d like to do some travel by boat but it seems it is not an option for me.

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.
