A woman has documented what it's like going through the Drake Passage, and definitely not of those who get sea sick.
The Drake Passage extends from Cape Horn at South America's southernmost tip to Antarctica's South Shetland Islands, and those who wants to go to Antartica have to go through the terrifying waters (unless traveling by plane which can be extremely expensive).
It's said that passengers will either experience 'Drake Lake' or 'Drake Shake' - and this woman definitely got a huge order of the 'Drake Shake'.
She explained in the clip: "To get to Antarctica by ship, you have to cross the Drake Passage. You can either get the Drake Lake or the Drake Shake. And unfortunately, I woke up and we were getting the Drake Shake.
"So I muster up the strength to get out of bed and ask the gods what I did to disappoint them, because little did I know that I would get the Drake Shake on the way back from Antarctica too and it would take twice as long."
In the video, which has since generated 2.5 million likes, Natasha and another passenger are seen having to hold onto railings for dear life in order to stay standing as the ship rocks violently.
She's then forced to head back to her room and 'get horizontal' as she watches the waves continue smash into her window.
Natasha then proceeded to share what not to do when traveling on waters such as those seen on the Drake Passage, and that's to read.
In total, the ship was traveling through the rough waters for a day and a half - and I feel sea sick just thinking about it.
Natasha had to fly to Argentina to get the boat, which then took her all the way to Antartica for what looked to be an incredible time.
The journey takes a total of ten days, but from the looks of the ship she was on, Natasha had it pretty good.
It's thought that she then spent a week in Antartica; making the stressful journey all worth it.
However, much to Natasha's dismay, she sadly got the 'Drake Shake' on the way back form Antartica too.
Since the video was posted, thousands of people piled into the comments to share their utter horror at the prospect of being in that boat.
One user wrote: "I would immediately start crying."
Another commented: "The water on the window would stress me out!"
A third put: "Those waves would give me a panic attack."
Not everyone was so put off by the video, though, some people loved it.
"Am I only the only one who thinks this would be so relaxing to fall asleep to?" asked one user.
With someone else chipping in: "What an incredible adventure!"
Hopefully she had some spare sick bags...
