    Just courious why your wife hates the ferry ride. 2 or 3 years ago I was on one that had wooden benches and the seas were bad so they would not let anyone sit outside. That was not a good experience but most of the trips I have taken are pretty comforable.

    We took the ferry one year, at night, with some decent rollers. She didn't vomit, but she was miserable and ill into the next day. I put her on a cheap flight back to CUN while I did the bag drag.

    EDIT - I don't get sea sick, so I made a mistake of putting us near a window, instead of in the center of the boat. Once she started getting nauseous, she didn't want to move or even talk.

    Being in the center of the boat would likely have been worse for her. A big contributor to motion sickness is being somewhere where your visual frame of reference doesn't match what your balance centers in your ears are telling you. Keeping eyes on the horizon helps most people.

    You almost might as well buy tickets to Cozumel. If she got ill on a ferry, she might not like an itsy bitsy single engine plane buffeted by winds.

    Yep, which will not work in the dark well, or on my daughter at all. I raised her to not get seasick, several plane trips as a youngster and even a cheap cruise that saw most people leave the dining room ill while we reached across for the snails left behind, but she does now, unless she drives. I like not having to drive, but her highspeed tailgating makes me nervous.
