Concerning tipping, our crew is dedicated to making your trip unforgettable, and tipping is a wonderful way to express appreciation for their efforts. In the yachting culture of Greece, tipping holds significant value as genuine feedback on the crew’s performance. However, it’s important to keep in mind that tipping amounts may vary based on factors like group size and boat type. There is no magic percentage or amount but for those seeking guidance on average tip amounts, here is a suggested breakdown:

– Charters with a captain and hostess: 15-20% of the total charter price (total amount split between captain and hostess)

– Charters with a captain only: 10-15% of the total charter price

*Groups of 2 passengers would be on the lower end of the scale, while larger groups are usually on the higher end.

On captain-only charters without a hostess, it’s customary to offer the captain snacks and/or lunch during the trip. Although they may not always accept, captains are often sailing throughout the day and have limited time to prepare lunch on their own.

Tipping methods: Cash is the preferred method, however, if you find yourself short on cash (or unable to get to an ATM) at the end of the charter, you can reach out to us via email, and we can arrange to collect the tip through Venmo or Zelle.
