Help! I’m feeling sea sick already!

In the summertime, the sea is generally extremely calm and so, if you are travelling in high season, you are unlikely to feel sea sick.

  • Choose to travel by regular or slow ferry, rather than by high speed ferry
  • Always sit towards the back of the boat
  • Avoid looking out of the window, and try to focus on an object directly in front of you or, better still, close your eyes and listen to a bit of music
