We are arriving 7/14 to Oyster Bay Beach Resort for a couple of weeks. How far in advance do we need to book a trip or can we book it when we get there? I was thinking about booking the 6 hr trip. Thanks.

I want to snorkel but I'm really scared about getting sea sick. Is the water choppy? Do people often get ill from the motion?

I would have 3 lady's on board with me (2 are my daughters). So for #1 or not that is not going to happen (off the side of boat). I don't want them on a boat where other people are doing that either.
