    I am headed to the lake this weekend to complete some specialties. I am just trying to figure out what the correct percentage for tipping the crew. Two days on a houseboat. Approximately 6 dives maybe more. Any rules of thumb?

    Thanks.

    $5/tank is our norm. If they really do something special, provide aid/rescue, etc. then more may be appropriate.

    Remember Steve Martin in My Blue Heaven...his rule was overtip. If you can afford it, overtip, the DM and crew can probably use the extra cash.
