    Ginger caps work. Also ginger gum.

    You can also get Motion Ease. It's all natural. It's an oil you actually put behind your ears in that soft spot. It settles out the ear which is the cause of sea sickness. Since you are only taking a small boat ride, I'd go this route which is way cheaper and you don't have to worry about marks on your wrists from the bands, which have to be super tight from what I hear.

    I plan on getting this for our cruise wedding, since they say the cross from the NE to Bermuda can be really rough sometimes. The Atlantic can be very fickel.

      I'll have a look see if I can find it on a website. I was told about it in 1992 by my old boss he said the UK hockey team used it. I used it and travelled Sri Lanka and wasn't sick once even when someone was hurling next to me lol

      I can't even travel in a car for more than 10 mins without wanting to puke so I love it

      Found it lol you can get it in every country EXCEPT US because its not FDA approved lol want me to send you some

        Bonine is similar to the non-drowsy Dramamine, except for me, the non-drowsy Dramamine made me sleepy still, and the Bonine just took away the nausea.

        Yeah, you'll probably not want to mix meds if you're already going to be on something. I would suggest the Psi bands, then, or the behind the ear patches. I've never had those, but I've heard good things. I also like Ginger Peach tea, but drinking a cup or two of that only helps sooth my stomach. I don't know if it would cure really bad motion sickness.
