Gratuities Note

It is customary to tip mates aboard fishing charters 15%-20% of the trip cost. While the configuration of the Karen Ann II allows me to sail many trips without a mate, I strive to, for those customers that need it, provide the highest level of service a mate would with regards to preparing bait and tackle, helping unhook and handle fish caught, and filleting and bagging fish at the end of the trip. Your gratuity reflects your level of satisfaction with those services and is greatly appreciated!
