Clients sometimes ask…

March 20, 2019 by Justin

Understandably, clients sometimes ask questions about a new experience of staying on a boat. Here are the most common questions that you might also want to ask us.

If you have any other questions, please email us and we will reply within 24 hours.

Do you get seasickness sleeping on a docked boat?

For most people, the answer is NO. All boats are moored tightly for minimal movement. Marina Vallarta usually has still, calm waters and this gentle rocking of the boats aids in helping people to sleep.

 

Will I get seasickness sailing around Banderas Bay?

The honest truth is some people do, some people don’t.

BUT, there are a few tricks that will help those who suffer from seasickness feel comfortable and have a great experience.

When sailing on a yacht the waves and motion might make you feel woozy.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Get fresh air.

Breath deep and do some relation or meditation exercises. This usually helps to settle the internal balance system.

2. Keep the horizon in sight

As your body adjusts to the movement, it’s helpful to face forward on the boat and glance at the horizon.

3. Manage what you eat

Just be sensible and eat those safe foods that you know your body and handle.

4. Don’t use binoculars, cameras or read

Your brain usually considers these as stable and using them on board can make you dizzy.

5. Ask your doctor for motion sickness pills

If you are especially sensitive to motion sickness then taking a pill will solve the problem and allow you to enjoy the experience.

 

Do I need anything special or specific to sleep on a boat?

For most, the sea air, beach activities and sun will make you hungry and tired by the end of the day. With just a little preparation for the following 4 things, we are positive you will have the perfect sleep on your yacht.

1. Check to see that the boat/yacht is well anchored or moored.

This one you don’t have to worry about as our expert team and yacht Captain will definitely make sure this is done correctly, minimizing movement to assist sleep.

2. Wrap yourself in layers

Cool breezes can feel like a strong contrast to the heat of the day so multiple thin layers are always advised for maximum comfort. All the Suite Marine boats will provide extra blankets.

3. Wear earplugs

The lapping of the gentle waves against the boat/yacht might not be for everyone. Earplugs add that extra level of sensory control to assist good sleep.

4. Keep your normal bedtime routine.

Get yourself relaxed with a hot shower and cup of tea (or any drink from the bar) just in the same way as anywhere else. The Suite Marine yachts have all the necessary amenities.

 

How does it compare with staying at a hotel?

It really is a different experience. We feel that what you trade in the convenience of a hotel, you gain in a new exciting experience on a boat. If you are looking for peace, calm, relaxation and adventure then why not sleep on a boat?

4 reasons to stay on a boat

How many nights do most people usually stay for?

On average, most of our clients stay between 1 to 3 nights. Often, people vacationing start their vacation in a hotel and spend at least 1 night on a boat, or vice versa.

 

Can I stay on a boat with kids?

YES! Kids LOVE the boating lifestyle. The Sunseeker Predator 64 has 2 double cabins, a twin cabin and a smaller 4th cabin which is perfect for a minor. In our experience kids love the excitement of staying on a boat and the experience of taking it out to sea.
