Good question - also any advice on tipping beach attendants?

customary tip for the crew only, not the captain, either 10.00 or 20.00 a pc. We tip 20.00 total, sometimes more depending on how many crew members. they usually divy it up between them. I never tip the captain, only the crew. Also, beach attendants, if they do an outstanding job, I tip them 2-3 a chair. When we vacation, I usually add up all the tipping and take singles on vacations so I have singles ready for everything. 2.00 is enough per chair.

look at this website for tipping.
