How to avoid seasickness on a boat

Seasickness, including nausea, vomiting, and dizziness, can quickly spoil your scenic boat tour or luxury cruise vacation.

If you’re one of the many travellers who suffer from motion sickness, seasickness can be particularly challenging. Knowing what you do to avoid it can help ensure smooth sailing on your journey.

How can I avoid seasickness?

  • Close your eyes and keep your head still.
  • Avoid heavy meals, caffeine and alcohol before you set sail. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water instead.
  • Pack GRAVOLTM and take it about an hour before boarding the boat to help prevent nausea, vomiting and dizziness due to seasickness. For extra-long trips, GRAVOLTM Fast Acting and Long Lasting Capsules releases medicine for up to 12 hours.
  • If you’re on a cruise, book a cabin near the centre of the ship where there is less movement.

 How can I treat seasickness?

  • Get some fresh air on the boat’s deck.
  • Keep your eyes on a distant, stable object like the coastline or the horizon.
  • Take a few slow, deep breaths to relax.
  • GRAVOLTM helps treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness due to seasickness. GRAVOLTM Ginger Lozenges and GRAVOLTM Quick Dissolve Chewable Tablets are both great solutions that can be taken without water. Be sure to pack ahead though, as GRAVOLTM is predominantly sold in Canada and will likely not be available at your destination.

Seasickness can really rock the boat, but a little extra planning can go a long way! Motion sickness can strike at any time, following the suggestions above can help reduce your odds of experiencing it.
