My wife loves the ocean, however, she gets sea sick if she can't see the horizon and needs fresh air.
A few years ago, we went on a cruise from San Francisco to Alaska. Fortunately we were warned about a stationary front that was sending waves out of the SWS. So she got an Rx for Transderm Scop Patches
The Star Princess left a couple of hours late and the Captain after going under
The Golden Gate Bridge put the pedal down to the metal as we hit the potato patch outside the GGB. We were topside and she and probably half of the passengers on the decks started turning green.
The rock and rolling got worse after the pilot was dropped off and the ship turned to go north to Alaska.
Fortunately, I haven't ever gotten seasick inspite of riding out a few hurricanes in a small Navy Ship. I went to get some food for me and some Seven Ups and crackers for my wife. The big dining hall was basically empty. The stewards had packed bags of 7 UPs, crackers and wrapped snacks in bags for people like my wife.
Finally, my wife put on her patch and felt better in about an hour. I got her out on the deck by our room, and she had a couple of the 7 Ups and some crackers. She was able to go sleep while the big ship did the rock & roll and shimy/tremor.
She did one more patch and was fine for the rest of the trip. On the trip home, the waves were more head on, and she wasn't bothered.
On another cruise, she had the patch on an hour before we left and was fine and only one patch was necessary.
In our Oasis, aka Hobie's Battleship, she has never had even a twinge of sea sickness. Yesterday, we were on our local river and on the 2 mile trip up North, the wind was similiar to what we had on the Alaska cruise from the SWS. She had no problem going up, on a tour in a protected harbor and on the way back. Last week on Bodega Bay, again with a SWS wind, she had no problems.
You will should have no problem with a Hobie in the fresh air and the ability to see the horizon. If you do, you can try Dramamine tabs. If they don't work, get an Rx for the patch. If you get seasick, on the next trip put the patch on at least 30 minutes before yakking. Be sure to hydrate your self before putting the patch on, while it is on, and take it off when you get back to land, and more hydration without booze.
