Gratuities to guides and crew – We believe our crew members provide world class service and we hope you agree.

However, for guests who might wonder what the typical amount is, at the Origin we suggest each of our passengers to leave in between US $300 – $350 per week which is the international standard for a luxury vessel like this. If you would like to leave your gratuity in cash, please feel free to use the envelope provided and drop it in the gratuity box that will be located in our lounge area. You could also charge the gratuity to your credit card by using your Visa or MasterCard. Gratuities are distributed among all crew members including naturalist guides.
