For guided dives the going rate for a DM tip is $10 per dive.

As for tipping the deckhands on local charters it's customary to leave between $10 - $20 for the day. This is usually split between the deckhand and captain.

As for multi-day trips I usually tip at the end unless the crew changes during my stay.

Tipping deck hands

Hi Folks
How much do you all tip deck hands on dive boats? Do you tip the same tropically as local? Multi day trips as single?

Just wondering what the going rate is.
