Charter fishing is a service business in which tipping is encouraged for a job well done. If your Captain and First Mate worked hard and did their best for you a 10-15% tip of the charter fee is generally customary. If, however, you were dissatisfied and feel a tip is not deserved, please let the Captain know why you were unhappy.
