Motion Sickness
If you are prone to motion sickness we suggest purchasing either Dramamine or Bonine over the counter at your local pharmacy or get a prescription for a behind the ear patch from your Doctor.
Patches work well for most people.  If taking Dramamine or Bonine, we've found that taking one pill bedtime the night before the trip and another half before getting on the boat usually provides the best results.
