Gratuity and Parking Fees
Gratuity and parking fees are optional, but customary, fees that may be paid during your sailing vacation.
A gratuity of 10% of the cost of your sailing trip is pretty typical and is very welcomed by your hard-working sailing crew. You can give your tip to any member of the crew or first mate and he or she will make sure the tip is shared among all the crew.
Parking at the Northend Shipyard in Rockland is free. Parking fees are optional, but are often appreciated, to help keep the area in good condition. A $20 per vehicle per trip fee is customary. You can give this fee to your captain and he or she will make sure it gets to the right person. Parking fees differ by vessel. If you want to be sure, just ask at your time of booking.
