I'm sure this won't help many, but when doing birding obs on the way down to
Antarctica in v rough weather, I noticed that us birders (who had to do
birding obs on 2 hr shifts throughout the day from the very start) seemed to
cope much better than those who had the luxury of staying in their beds.

Maybe keeping active and concentrating on something helps.

However nothing beats having time to get used to the motion - a luxury not
available on most birding trips (took me a couple of days, but it sure feels

Seasickness tablets do seem to help, too.
