How to Avoid Getting Seasick
Becoming unexpectedly ill as a result of seasickness is always a possibility. In one form or other, it is possible for anyone on the trip to feel sick, even on calm waters. It can happen to anyone. If you have a tendency to get seasick or suffer from motion sickness, we strongly recommend you consider a prescription patch for the trip. At a minimum, we recommend that you take over the counter medication like Dramamine, starting the night before your trip. It does little good to start taking these over the counter medications once you are feeling queasy. Be sure you carefully follow the instruction label for taking an over-the-counter medication to ensure sufficient dosage. The dosage is typically calculated for a 150-pound person.
What you eat and drink before and during a trip is crucial to avoiding seasickness. Typically bland, easily digestible food is best. Pass on the predawn bacon, egg and cheese sandwich! Minimize alcohol consumption. Getting sick will definitely ruin your day and can make the trip unpleasant for the other guests; so we urge you to err on the side of caution.
Dock and Departure
Unless otherwise agreed upon, fishing charters depart from Cape Ann Marina, 75 Essex Ave. Gloucester MA. The time for departure is dependent on the type of charter and the time of year. Please confirm your charter departure time and plan to be at the dock at least 15 minutes prior.
What You Should Bring
Food (bagged lunches)
Drinks (soda, water, juice and beer/wine)
Remember that it is cooler on the water than it is on land, so you may want to bring a sweatshirt or jacket.
Rain gear, waterproof boots or shoes.
If you’re a hearty soul out fishing in the fall or early winter, you’ll want to dress in layers.
Sun visor or a hat to block the powerful rays.
