I am a sufferer of motionsickness, worst on a boat. On my first trip to Thailand, I found that a pill was only sometimes effective. Possibly due to varying degress of hangover. This time I'm planning on doing alot of diving, which means many trips in a small boat. I don't really wan't to have to dope myself up before every dive.
Before anyone says, "You'll get used to it in time". I worked on a cruise ship for seven months, and while this is true for living aboard, I fear it will be quite different adjusting to sea and land daily. Sea legs vs S.E.A. legs, if you will.What other things have people tried that they've found effective?
Wrist band thingies? Garlic pill?

Dimenhydrinate (AKA Gravol, dramamine) works for me. I suffer worst on winding, mountainous bus rides though, not at sea.

I find that staying on my feet as much as possible, and keeping an eye on the horizon works pretty well. Helps maintain balance.

staying in front of the boat or a bus or any vehicle for that matter and looking ahead helps me in most of my travels..seeing where we're heading to helps me anticipate movements and yes it helps maintain balance.
