What if I get seasick, when is the best time to travel?

Created by Richard under on Monday 17th of December 2012

Like any destination, the weather in Cairns is unpredictable. If you are a diver that suffers from sea sickness (as we do at Cairns Dive Adventures!) then we highly recommend taking preventative medication before you travel. Julie Johnston – one of Cairns Dive Adventures’ owners – suffers from quite bad motion sickness. By taking preventative medication, she has comfortably done all dive trips from Cairns, including liveaboard trips, in all weather conditions. Avoid being sea sick by planning ahead. All vessels have seasickness preventatives on board, but it is important to take them before you travel rather than once you are feeling unwell. Generally, it is the crossing of open water from Cairns to the reef that affects most people: once you are at the reef, it provides shelter for the vessel.
