How much to tip?

My husband and I booked a halibut/salmon charter for two day. We will be in Homer July 25-30,2008. We are fishing two days with the same captain. How much do we tip? I good use some good advise.

There's a great post about tipping ("great" is in MY opinion ;-) near the end of this thread:


Are you on a 6-pack boat, or something larger with more folks fishing? Is the Captain the guide doing all the work, or are there 4 deckhands running around baiting hooks and helping you land fish? There are many variables that will dictate how much of a tip is earned. Don't hesitate to step up to the captain or business owner and ask how they handle tips... it's not a forbidden question!

Happy Alaska Travels!
