NMRA receives numerous requests throughout the season for guidance regarding a proper amount of money to tip your guide. While never expected, gratuities for an exceptional experience are always appreciated. The industry standard in rafting for tipping is very similar to other hospitality jobs with gratuities averaging around 20% of your total trip cost. You can tip your guide numerous ways including cash, Venmo or during the reservation process. If we can answer any questions about gratuities, please feel free to contact our helpful staff.
Are you bringing a large group? Please ask about adding your gratuity onto your invoice. We can include the gratuity to make it easier on you. Please ask our friendly staff about how to do that and be sure to let your trip leader know.
