I heard about people getting seasick... will I?
I wish we could say no... but everyone is different. If you get motion sickness, or feel you may, be sure to be prepared. Gravol or patches is an option and can be found at your favourite pharmacy! Ginger ale in your cooler and soda crackers could be a non-medical option or a backup. A full stomach at all time is the secret to prevent seasickness!
