Money and Tipping

When dining in restaurants, it is customary to leave 15-20% tip for good service since servers typically make minimum wage. Taxi drivers should be tipped the same rate.

Local Transportation

Sitka is easily walkable. A shuttle service around town may be offered when cruise ships are in port.
