Tipping and Gratuity Guide for Charters and Weddings

It is standard practice in the industry to pay a gratuity to your captain on charters. Like the restaurant industry, tips make up a substantial portion of a charter boat captain's income.

It is a way for you to show your appreciation of the service you have received from your captain. A typical tip would range between 15 -20% of the value of a charter, just like your restaurant bill. Here is a guideline for our various charters:
