Fun time whale watching. Saw a mother and calf. A shark, etc. Good time. My son liked it but said it could have been done in 1/2 the time.

Spouse was apprehensive about whether or not she would enjoy it but once we got out to the feeding site to watch the whales feeding in their natural environment she was more then thrilled.

I notice some people get seasick on these tours. Is there anything we can do ahead of time to prevent this? Is there stuff on the boat to ease the misery or does it end up being a couple hours of torment? Thanks

I can share my experience: I had no pills but I made a stupid mistake: I ate. My lunch ended up quite shortly in a plastic bag that the boat crew was ready to give me. After that I was fine.
