Tipping for Parasailing on CC

I'm trying to get as many tip envelopes prepared ahead of time as possible. Does anyone know how many CM's are on the parasailing boat? Also, what would be an appropriate tip for them? It will be my DH and DS.

The Parasailing is a private company not Disney. There were 2 or 3 guys on the boat. One was the Captain. They did a great job.

Thanks for clarifying that! I just assumed anyone on CC was employed by DCL. Any idea how much to tip?

I'm trying to figure it out too! 10 to each person or 10 all together?

There was four us as well and I gave the two guys $20 total. I don't think anyone else tipped but they might not have realized the they were not Disney employees.

Hi there Bob!

My DH and DS are going at 11:30. Some spots finally opened up this week and I was able to book them. No room for me though so I'll just be forced to shop instead Maybe we'll see you there.

Why does everyone have to be tipped? Where I come from, we tip servers.

Tipping is a personal choice, but whenever we have snorkels etc. on vacation we always tip the crew. As mentioned these guys are not DCL. Not everyone tipped them on our excursion, but it always appreciated.

We tend to tip a lot baggage handlers (always well), valet parking, bell hop etc, not jest a server in a restaurant.
