Step 1: Consider preventive medication Think preventively. Take an over-the-counter antihistamine 1/2 hour prior to boarding the boat or at the first signs of seasickness. You can also consult your doctor for prescription medication. Step 2: Drink plenty of water before you get on the boat Drink plenty of water prior to boarding. Dehydration can make you dizzy and cause nausea. Tip Avoid drinking alcohol, which can cause dehydration and nausea. Step 3: Eat right Eat right before heading out. Bread and other grains, apples, and bananas are all good choices. Avoid anything greasy or acidic. Step 4: Position yourself where motion is less noticeable Find a spot on board where motion is least noticeable, such as the inner-middle part of the boat. Tip A window can help put the rocking motion into perspective but can also worsen the feelings of nausea as more objects are moving. Step 5: Stare into the horizon Focus on the horizon and scenery rather than the water or the movement of the boat. If you feel queasy, stand; sitting or lying down can increase nausea. Step 6: Eat hard candy Suck on hard candy or eat dry crackers to help keep nausea in check. Did You Know? Did you know? Some people who take long cruises suffer "landsickness" for a few days after their trip as their body readjusts to being on firm ground.
