    Will I get seasick?

    The Freda B is a large and comfortable vessel. She provides a safe and smooth ride through the seas.  Unlike many types of fishing boats that buck in the current or small sailboats that heel excessively, the Freda B glides nicely for a safe and sturdy ride.  

    If you are susceptible to motion sickness be sure to take necessary precautions. We do not provide seasickness medication. Individuals worried about motion sickness are welcome to purchase medication and follow the directions before sailing. We have deliciously strong Reed’s Ginger Beer (non-alcoholic) at our bar if you are feeling a bit unsettled during the sail.
