I tipped everyone this trip.

Captain, $10 each way and everyone else. Made sure at least 20% was tipped to all food servers, gave house keeping a $50 tip for the week. Tipped the girls at Gerauds, even tipped the little girl bagging my groceries at food 95.

Cant help it, they are too nice, humble and deserving in my heart.

My experience is the same as Emily's. Upon arrival in AXA, there is no one obvious to tip, so I just grab my bag from the cart and go. Leaving AXA and arriving in SXM, it is very clear who the very aggressive porters are!

Well, the OP has been and gone....I am just simply amazed over our over the pond cousins who make such a major issue over tipping. We pay nothing unless asked

Speedy gets the bags at BP and (for us) he always makes a point of going around collecting his tips.

Emily, I always hand the porter a tip on the dock before I go up and go through immigration at BP.

Bemitten, Your generosity made my day. And yes, the Anguilians are truly so nice, humble and deserving. Pay it forward---I will remember this next time I am there. A few dollars here and there will not break me and I know it means a lot to the people who assist us on our trips down.
