While this is a common question, in our 16 years of charter sailing, recurring seasickness is extremely rare. One of the main reasons for this is the size and stability of our catamarans, which are not as affected by rough seas compared to smaller monohulls.

We’ve found that even passengers who are prone to motion sickness typically only experience slight nausea on the first day of sailing.In addition to medication, let your captain know that you’re worried about seasickness and they’ll do their best to plan a calmer route with more frequent stops for swimming and relaxing.

While the captains obviously don’t control the weather, they do have decades of sailing experience, and guests prone to seasickness are encouraged to take their advice on routes and islands to visit.
