How long does it take to travel 50 nautical miles?

going on a fishing trip and a little nervous about getting sick!

How fast is your boat going? 50 nautical miles would take on the average boat about 1 1/2 hours.

you are required to have passports to cross the border in both directions. technically you are supposed to report to the nearest inspection station when you arrive. There are a lot of variables that would effect how long it takes, the currents you will face, wind conditions, your own paddling strength and skills and even the type of kayak will make a difference in your overall speed. The best racers can go about 8mph on calm flat water but that is an aggressive pace. I’ve done some ocean trips covering around 3.5 miles per hour on a much more manageable pace but the only way for you to know what’s a good pace for you is measuring your own pace. Most kayakers on flat water can expect around 2 – 2.5 mph on calm water. if the current is against you that will slow you down a lot “The average sea kayaker can generally cruise at a speed of 2.5-3.5 Knots (Nautical Miles/Hour). 1 Nautical mile is 1.8 kilometers, or 1.2 imperial miles. Assuming a paddling time of 8-10 hours a day, one could conceivably travel 20-35 nm.” make sure you take a waterproof gps, nautical charts and check the weather before you head out.

Well, that will depend on how fast you can travel.
If your boat can travel 50 nautical miles per hour, then you will get there in one hour. (speedboats can go this fast)
If your boat travels at 20 nautical miles per hour, then you will get there in two hours thirty minutes. (cruise ships can go this fast)
If your boat only travels at 10 nautical miles per hour (small boats may go this fast) then you will get there in five hours.
If you’re concerned about getting seasick, there are several things you can do to help:
(1) don’t go out on the water with food in your stomach. Take a snack of carbohydrates (like crackers) to help calm your stomach and absorb acids.
(2) stay still while the boat is moving… don’t get up and walk around. Focus your eyes on something that doesn’t appear to be moving (like the floor or a wall… or sometimes the distant horizon). Do choose a place where you’re exposed to fresh air, like on deck or near a window.
(3) Try taking an anti-seasickness medication. Dramamine is well known, but it will make you very sleepy. Bonine is another medication can can take that won’t make you nearly as sleepy. You should always consult your doctor, because her or she may be able to prescribe you an alternative medication that works better for you, or may advise you not to take something if you are on other prescription medications.
(4) There are accupressure techniques that work for some people (there’s a spot on the inside of your wrist and another near your ear that you can press and will calm the nausea. This hasn’t worked for me, but I’ve seen it work wonderfully in others).
(5) Meditate
(6) Drink real ginger ale or ginger tea——not the stuff from the store because it doesn’t have any real ginger in it, just artificial ginger flavor——no, make your own out of real ginger root. Ginger has natural anti-nausea compounds and has been used to prevent or stop nausea since ancient times. This property of ginger has also been scientifically proven.
