Is seasickness an issue on charters?

Since you’ll be sailing on a boat, seasickness is always a possibility, however we have found that passengers tend to get seasick on smaller charters less often than cruise ships.  This is because you’ll spend most of your sailing time outside and you’ll always be within site of land.   A vast majority of clients have no issues at all and even clients who are very sensitive to motion sickness adjust after a day or so at sea.  We recommend bringing an over-the-counter medication such as Dramamine if you are prone to motion sickness.

Quick Notes:
-If you are worried about seasickness, we highly recommend the Saronic route.  This route features shorter sail times and calmer seas than the Cyclades (if Athens is your base).
-If you do need to go into your cabin during sailing, we recommend a quick trip or laying down for a nap is always nice.
-While you’re anchored or docked for the night there will be very little rocking or movement of the boat.
