Come prepared. If you are sensitive to motion or you’ve never experienced an open ocean before, be precautious, and take motion sickness medicine one day prior to your trip. Dramamine is well-known in the U.S to help with motion sickness, and it’s available at any drug store. If you prefer more natural methods, ginger candies before and during the trip can be of great help.
There is one enclosed restroom on the boat.
There is also a public restroom available in Moss Landing Marina. We recommend using the restroom before trips.
