What causes dizziness/ wooziness after getting off a boat dock?

In brief: "Sea Legs"

Most likely, your body got adjusted to the constant rocking and movement of the boat, so once you stood on solid ground, your brain was now intrepreting the lack of motion as motion.
It should go away within a few minutes.
