Easy Tips to Beat Seasickness on Your Next Boat Trip

What is Seasickness?

Do you start feeling sick as soon as the boat rocks or when you’re just floating on water? If yes, you might have seasickness. You’re not alone, and there’s good news: this article will show you how to prevent seasickness. It’s for anyone who hates feeling sick on boat trips.

Seasickness happens because the boat’s movement messes with your inner ear, which helps you balance. On water, your balance isn’t as good as on land, making you feel nauseous. We’re a local tour company in the Canary Islands, and we sell lots of boat trips every day. We wrote this article using our best advice to help our clients have a great time on the Atlantic Ocean. With our tips, we hope you’ll feel better and enjoy your trip more.

What Makes You Sick at Sea?

  • Feeling very tired

  • Feeling dizzy
  • Having a headache

Who Might Feel Seasick?

Anyone can feel seasick, but it’s more common in kids, women, and older people. Even though it’s not serious, make sure kids don’t get too dehydrated if they throw up.

Beat Seasickness with These 7 Tips

  1. Get Ready in Your Head: Feeling scared or stressed can make seasickness worse. Try to get to the boat early so you’re not rushed. Taking medicine that stops you from throwing up before you get on the boat can help. Also, being really tired makes seasickness worse, so get plenty of sleep before your trip.
  2. Dress Right: Tenerife might be warm, but it can get chilly on the sea. Wear clothes that block the wind. Feeling cold can make seasickness hit you faster.
  3. Look at the Horizon: Don’t watch the water or the back of the boat. It can make you dizzy.
  4. Eat and Drink Right: Eat a good meal before you go, but don’t eat too much. Avoid really sweet or sour foods. Drink plenty of water and skip the alcohol.
  5. Keep Busy: Doing things can take your mind off feeling sick. When you’re busy, you’re less likely to feel seasick. Enjoy your trip by looking for dolphins and whales or just enjoying the sea.
  6. Stay in the Middle: The middle of the boat rocks less. Try not to stay in small, closed places like the cabin.
  7. Think About Medicine: Some medicines can stop you from feeling sick. You can buy them without a prescription.
