But don't you live the life of Riley in a tropical setting and get paid an executive salary? All the beer you can drink and an endless supply of dive groupie chicks trying to score with the Big Kahuna? And don't forget the tan and the intellectual conversation you get to share with your guests! :)

Maybe you should be tipping the guests?

I was just wondering with all this expert knowledge of what that dive industry pays for a deck hand on a dive boat in the US for a US passport carrying person, how many of you have worked on one???

Do you think that we have medical ?
retirement?
paid vacation ?
profit sharing ?
Do you think we get a christmas bonus ?
Do you think we are covered when we have to go in the water to do a rescue cuz you have been drinking or have been hand feeding the sharks or just diving over your head and being stupid?

What you pay for on a dive trip is...
Transportation (on a sea worthy ship with a licensed capt.) and accommodations (hot food, clean bathrooms, ect,ect) Note: we are not responsible for the weather of if WILD ANIMALS do not appear on time.
