[quote=“Pingdong”]oh man, that sea is nasty, even now lol. It is these boats that I have my family send me “Gravol” pills from back in Canada. I took my mother and sister on the green island boat in winter and the waves were so big the windows were sipping under the water line, no one could stand, go outside etc and the only sound louder than puking was crying. My mom had a blast, she took a video of my sister (31 years old) crying and praying to god hoping not to die. It was on this trip that my wife, whom I have never seen puke from a flu or traveling in our entire relationship, puked up here pink cake and made me take it to the trash, at which point my stomach also went.
They are fun boats, but you need a stomach of fucking steel on them sometimes. I have not once not gotten severely sick form the ferries, and its not the boats problem, its the ocean is just insane sometimes.
I don’t knwo about green, but if you are flying to orchid book well in advance. We have had super bad luck for many years with flights being full because you dont need to pay until you get there, but they will reserve seats for you still. so many people back out at the last minute.
If you don’t have chemicals to help your sea sickness, they sell these hard candies with a dried salty plum inside, no idea the name, common in Taiwan. I hate the taste, but they do work very well to suck on and suppress the upset a bit. green island is only 40 mins though, so its not that bad i guess, orchid i wouldnt be caught dead on the ferry.[/quote]
Well, when you get the monsoon winds coming from north to south, pushing against the Kuroshio current which flows from south to north, then it’s no surprise that the waves are a bit crazy.
