    Choppy surf on the whale-watching boats

    by mikelisaanna Written Oct 21, 2009

    We had a great time on our whale-watching cruise out of Hermanus. However, the surf was pretty choppy, with a lot of 3-5 foot high waves witting the boat. One of our fellow passengers got seasick over the side, and a couple of others looked like they were a little queasy. However, the discomfort was worth it, as we got some great up-close views of whales.

    If you are prone to seasickness or motion sickness, this may not be the boat ride for you, unless you can take medication to control your issues. Beware that you are going to be out on the boat for at least 2 hours, so it will be a long, miserable trip if you get sick.
