Not necessarily. : Sit at the front of the ferry or up on top and do not sit backwards. Try to fix on a point far up front and avoid side to side looking. Fresh air helps. If you have been sea sick previously, otc meds like Meclizine or drammamine may help. They can have side effects as well. Try it along first. If the trip is short, you may not need anything. If it is long and the seas are high, premedicate.
