Keep Medications Close
Know Your When cruising away off shore in the ocean it is better to be safe than sorry. If you are a first time in a boat, you may want to consider motion sickness medications. These can usually be found in most convenience or drug stores. Prescription medications are also available through your doctor. Talk with your doctor to determine what might work best for you. Most medications must be taken a few hours prior to the trip. Be sure to check the label. Once your trip begins, it is too late to take anything. Always carry any prescription medication with you, on your person, while you are onboard. In case you get sick, you’ll have it with you and can provide to the medical staff when they treat you.
Be honest with yourself about your limitations. Don’t try to do anything too physical that you are not capable of.
