Crew attitude falls primarily on the captains attitude
and secondly on the charter group. If the crew is well
paid and trained for being a dive boat operation then
there is no reason why quality should not shine through.
However if the captain expects tips to round out or
fatten the wage he pays then there may be trouble.
I have been on boats where the attitude sucks and so
do the tips. I have been on more trips where the service
has been outstanding the food most excellent (usually
on an all inclusive where there is a dedicated cook not
a cook/deck hand) and the tips at the end of the day
are meager. Instructional boats are the worst offenders
too many $1's and not enough $10's.
