St. Thomas to VG Baths via cruise excursion

Is anyone familiar with the excursion the cruise ships offer to the Baths from St. Thomas. I have a friend who would love to take the trip but is worried about the ferry trip there. Small boats make her sea sick. How long is the trip, how big is the boat, and how rough is the trip? Thanks in advance.

It is about an hour and a half maximum. Here is what the ferrys look like:

The ferrys move pretty fast. You are going straight down Sir Francis Drake Channel which is protected from open ocean by islands, however if you are prone to sea sickness you would definately want to take something. There are several herbal remedies, but it is best to consult a physician before the trip. They often prescribe scopolamine patches which are very effective.

Is Speedy's running excursions using the cats from St Thomas?

The cats are very comfortable with A/C downstairs and some room upstairs in the open. I doubt anyone would get seasick.
