Toddler on long tail boat, is it safe?

Hi..We're planning to stay on Railay beach after 5 nites in Phuket along with my 22mo daughter on Mid April. We're concerned about the safetiness on long tail boat (I'll bring her safety jacket though) and her motion sickness due to sea waves. Any of you experienced with toddler on long tail boat? TIA!

It's relatively safe, but I would advise against going if the seas are rough. It's only about a 15 minute journey so you should be fine. Have been on a longtail with a 2 year old, she loved it. Just keep tight hold of her.

Thanks Cassnu! So I decided to stay in Centara Grand Beach Krabi instead of Railay, quite secluded and can only access by longtailboat as well, cos i want to head up to Aonang once or twice to enjoy local vibe. Do you know some place in aonang center that I can pick up diapers and UHT milk? Dont want to buy in bulk in Phuket days before..

lazychair, I'm not sure what supermarkets are in Ao Nang itself, hopefully someone can direct you on that, but you can definitely get them in the supermarket in Krabi Town around 30 minutes from Ao Nang.
