View Full Version : Seasick.

A general question, really. Do you get seasick during boat trips?

Also, do you enjoy travel by boat/ship, and when was the last time you sailed?

Went on a large historical shipy thingy cruise last week, no seasickness.

I used to, but not anymore. Which is good, I go on boats often.

I love going on boats. I went on a ferry when I went on holiday and I really liked it, I didn't get seasick, my mum did though >_< I only get travel sick in cars.

I last went in a boat when I went to Southampton, well a place near it, and we had to take this boat across. It was nice looking out on the water and stuff.

Any ferry that takes more than a hour, I tend to get sea sick. *remembers bad memories of her ferry trip to France* :(

I the boat is stationary and the water is wavy, causing the boat to bob up and down with no horizontal motion, then yes, I will get seasick very very quickly (like two minutes). If the boat takes off in a relatively short amount of time, then no.

Every freakin' summer my family go on a ferry to France, in a 7 hour journey. We could go on Eurostar which'd take an hour or something, but NO, my mother "likes boats". But I'm not going with them this year, as I'm a big boy now! :greenie:

I hate boats. And I never get seasick. But I freakin' hate boats. But the last time I went on a boat was last summer and they had movies on it and I watched the Matrix Reloaded and it was cool.

Charming....just charming....

Me? Not so far as I know. I've only been on pretty smooth water, though (DAMN me and my landlocked life.).

I dont know, really. I've only been on a boat oonce, and I'd had medicine beforehand. I was just terribly scared with the ocean trying to kill me.

I've been on a boat a couple times, and even when I take the medicine it doesn't work. I've had really bad motion sickness all my life. Even when the boat isn't moving, I get sick. I don't...like boats.

I've been on like one or two ferries in my life + all the other times we went crabbing and other small boating stuff, and I didn't seem to get seasick. I did however get a little afraid of it at first and feel nauseous and nervous but it's funny because there's a weird, dizzy feeling I get after being on the waters. =\ And aside maybe from crazy amusement park rides (I'm not going to try and see if I'm affected ;x), I don't get motion sickness.

I love boats. Since my Uncle and my friend's dad own boats, I go on them a lot. I don't get seasick, but boats make me tired after a while, especially if I'm fishing on them.

I never ever get seasick. :D
Yeah same here, though I don't like traveling by boat, cause its just a waste of time compared to flying.

Airline carriers are fun though...it feels like your on a moving island cause theres so many people its like a city floating on the sea. :)

I never get to the point of throwing up or anything, but I always get seasick to some point when on a boat, especially ferrys...and I'm on one everytime I need to go to the mainland. If I sit facing in the direction that it's traveling, it's not so bad though, but if I sit facing towards the back then I'm much worse.

I think I went on a ferry once. I didn't get sick.

I hardly go on ferries, but when I do I don't get sick. :)

But when I travel in a car/van, I puke every... 2-3 hours?

I've only gone on the Staten Island Ferry, and didn't get sick. Other than that, I can't think of any time I've gone on a boat.

my girlfriends family owns a boat so i go out all the time...
i was only out in the middle of the ocean for the first time last week tho. i had joined them on their 2 week vacation and i was at a place where u couldnt see land it was cool..

used to get sick but now i only do if i stay inside the cabin thingy for too long while going fast... its easily remedied by crackers tho

i dont really get seasick...i think...i think the only time i was ever on a boat was my friend wills. His uncle had one and they invited me down there for a weekend to hang out. But that was oh i dunno 6 years ago i think. Now...I probably would.

I've only ever been 'seasick' once, but I don't really think it was sickness from the boat as much as the fact that it was rolling so much I was afraid it would roll over :p (I was quite young).

Other than that, I've been on boats countless times, and have taken lessons for the last few summers, and will be doing that on Sunday for two weeks. Lots of fun.

Boat trips are very boring. I don't get seasick though.

Do you get seasick during boat trips? Nope, I never get any type of travel sickness.

Also, do you enjoy travel by boat/ship, and when was the last time you sailed?

Yes I do, last time I went on a boat was about 2 months ago, I went on a ferry type cruise around my beachy town.

I was seasick once, whilst out watching my uncle and a friend lobster-potting. It was a very small boat and the sea was choppy. I don't think I've felt as bad as I did for those couple of hours. Yuk.

I go on boats often as I'm a fisheries officer, but it's on lakes and rivers. Much better.
