Physicals conditions

Can I get seasick on a sailboat?

Dizziness is a sensation that can occur at some time when we are on board and depends on each person, the sea state and weather conditions. In these cases, it is advisable to prevent by following  these basic tips:

– Eat and drink frequently: make sure you have a good breakfast before leaving home and avoid copious meals that can cause heavy digestion just before sailing. Of course, throughout the day and even during the activity, we recommend eating something every 1 or 2 hours and be well hydrated. This will help you drastically reduce the feeling of dizziness and “stomach emptiness”.

– Protect yourself from the sun: avoid long exposures to the sun while you are enjoying the activity.

– Cool off or shower on the deck before diving into the sea to avoid a sharp temperature contrast in the summer months.

I am a person prone to dizzy. What can I do?

First, we recommend that you consult with your doctor. In general, people who are prone to dizziness can take anti-dizziness pills 1 hour before boarding and / or every 4 hours if the journey is long and the symptoms still persist. But remember that it must be your doctor who determines what treatment is right for you and the recommended dose.

 

I can't swim. Can I do the activity?

Yes of course! You can fully enjoy the activity while on deck. Equally and for your peace of mind, all our boats have life jackets for children and adults. Of course, it is  necessary to notify our crew that you do not know how to swim in advance so everything can be organized and they can advise you on the security measures that you should take.

 

I have reduced mobility, can I get on the boat?
Evidently you can. Contact us a few days before your activity and let us know what your situation is so that we can prepare the boat and the dock for boarding and disembarking.
