Scopolamine is good. It's a prescription med. It's a patch you wear behind your ear. Might cause dry mouth. The non-prescription ones I've tried tend to make me sleepy.
Discontinued from what I hear.

The night before go out for sushi, drink sake, and eats lots and lots of pickled ginger.
The morning of trip drink a bloody mary. The tomato juice coats the stomach and the vodka gives you sea legs.
During the trip, drink beer. It makes your legs wobbly, but if you do it right, they are the same wobbliness as the boat... it will feel flat.
Brace yourself on the dock railing when you return to land. The dock and terra firma is where you'll get sick.
A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals.

The patch works well for a lot of people. Put it on the day before. However, if you're nervous about getting seasick you're already half way to doing your own personal chumming. A lot of seasickness is in the mind. So why go out on a day that sounds like a hate mission? Discretion is the better part of valor.
