My husband and I have been wanting to make it to the dry tortugas for quite a while. We finally decided that we were going to fit it into our trip for our first anniversary. Of course that didn't happen because of the shutdown, but I am going back to the keys in just 10 days and I was so happy to hear that the park re- opens on October 21st and that the Yankee freedom will resume service! My only concern is that I get sea sick very easily! Yes, even in the keys on a flat calm day bottom fishing about 7 miles out I get very sick! My only experience on a boat in the keys when I did not get sick was my wedding reception (thank goodnes!) which was on a sunset cruise. Taking the seaplane is not an option for us as my husband hates heights! So, my question is, for those of you that have taken the Yankee freedom to the tortugas do I need to be worried about getting motion sickness on the way there and back? I always muscle through it bc I love being on the water so much, but I need to mentally prepare myself!
