Sit at the back of the boat. On many a sea transfer in Thailand I have learned a vital lesson...the front means wave impact , back is far more comfortable a journey.

The back of a boat can also be the wettest, especially when the boats hop over the wake of other boats!

I have only travelled by seaplane to Ellaidhoo - have taken the speedboat a number of times to Biya though. You should perhaps anticipate choppy waters and be pleasantly surprised if its calm, so if there is the slightest chance that you suffer with seasickness take a travel pill well in advance of boarding just to be safe.

Last October the weather was particularly inclement (the seaplane had difficulty landing and it was like an episode of Total Wipeout trying to moor the dhoni and plane to the pontoon and cross between the two) some of those travelling by boat found the journey 'taxing' but otherwise okay.
