Why we get seasick

It’s no wonder that seasickness is also known as motion sickness. We get sick due to the boat motion and has to do with the way our bodies and minds perceive our spatial orientation – basically, we lose balance, feel the boat’s motion, and start feeling nausea.

Today, there are plenty of choices among pills you can take before you get on the boat that can help you avoid seasickness.

  • Choose food & drinks cautiously

Avoid alcohol and spicy food the night before the trip with BabaSails. Prefer a light snack, keep crackers on you, and have a soft drink if you start feeling seasick.
