What is it like the first time you go onto a boat? Read details...

Ok, I have NEVER been on a boat before. Friday I will be on a boat in the middle of Lake Lewisville... I am kind of worried I may get motion sickness. Is being on a boat for the first time going to screw up my party plans? Yes I'm of age, 29... It's seriously my first time on a boat! Lol!

It depends, but there are pills you can get for sea sickness. I could be mistaken, but I believe Dramamine is one of them. I would just wait a while before you start drinking so you can see how you are going to react.

That's what my husband said to take too. It's the first time in 5 years that I'm getting to go out with my BFF without us having all our kids with us... So I really want to just have fun! Thanks!

I am the most paranoid traveller on earth by boat, plane, train...! I get motion sickness so easily too..... I am also 30 yrs. old.

I have been on a whale watch boat and there came rolling in this awful storm on the ocean! The boat was going crazy up and down with water coming in it! Everyone was vomiting... Needless to say even though I was scared beyond belief, I didn't vomit and I didn't get sick! I was holding on for dear life just waiting for it to be over.

Since then I had sworn I wouldn't go on a boat ever again, but actually have! I get nervous, but as long as it's calm waters everything's ok!

Don't freak! You will be fine and will have a great experience and have fun!!! You can bring Dramamine just in case or Ginger chews :)

Wow! Well I'm just going to be in a lake... I couldn't ever go in the ocean... My dad should never have let me watch JAWS as a small child! Lol... Seriously I'm terrified of the ocean! I'll end up taking the nausea stuff... Thanks! You are much braver than I am! It's taken this long for me to even want to step foot on a boat!

Have you ever seen a newborn calf take it's first steps? Try not to look like that. Brace yourself at all times.

What kind of boat sweetie small boats that you just cruise on are ok fast small boats are scary being on the for the first time lager boats are cool but for me I notice that on a large boat that if I sit in the middle of the boat I don't get sick and I can't sit still for to long without feeling sick. It depends on what type of boat

It's for a company party... I know it's not a small fast boat... I know at least 100 people will be there so far... My BFF said it's a "party" boat? So I am assuming a larger slower one.... Hopefully!

Ok so a large boat bring motion sickness pill for just in case.. Don't sit in the corner of the boat that is where I get sick at because to can feel the boat rock there try sitting or standing towards the middle of the boat so you don't notice the boat moving so much. Don't over eat :) once your there and start moving around and talking to people you will be fine:) enjoy yourself sweetie. Remember corner of boat bad center good and you can count the whole center of the boat... Try to say toy boat 5times fast almost know one can do it lol

Get some Dramamine pills for motion sickness just in case. If your inside and start to feel queasy go out on deck so you can see the world and it may help. I was navy.
