How much should I tip?


    Gratuity is customary on fishing charters, especially in the United States. The industry standard is 15–20% of the total price. First mates usually work only for tips, and so it is often expected.

    An important thing to note is that tips are not included in the trip price itself. 

    For more information, contact the Captain.
